Qantas drops flights to the USA from $799 return a day before Black Friday

It's an early Black Friday surprise from the flying kangaroo.

It might be titled a Fly Away Sale, but we reckon Qantas has chosen to ditch the dollars on USA flights in honour of Thanksgiving – and to get in early before Black Friday launches tomorrow on 23 November 2018.

Whatever the case, we're more than thankful for the chance to hop to the US on the cheap with flights down as low as $799 return.

This price tag is on fares to Hawaii; however, you can still get to the mainland for under $1,000 return. Sample fares to get you there include Sydney to Los Angeles from $949 and Melbourne to San Francisco from $949 return.

Flights depart between 19 January and 11 September 2019 and exclude peak school holiday periods. However, some public holidays, including Australia Day (26 January) and the Queen's Birthday (10 June) are included – as are peak-season summer dates between mid-July and mid-September.

The sale runs all Cyber Weekend, which is one of the biggest sale periods of the year. Make sure to make the most of it by heading to Flight Finder now to book your seat.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. These prices are right up there with some of the cheapest to the USA offered by Qantas. Flights to the mainland even run slightly cheaper than usual, typically starting at $999 giving you savings of $50 on return flights.
  • Airline: Great. Qantas is the #2 airline in the world according to AirlineRatings.com. There's only one other airline that can top it. Literally.
  • Frequent Flyer Points: Great. You can earn a minimum of 3,000 points and 35 status credits on discount economy flights between Sydney and Hawaii, which is one of the cheapest fares in the sale.
  • Travel time: Great. Flights are either direct or fly via Los Angeles. You can keep your transit time to a minimum to ensure you get to your destination as soon as possible.
  • Weather: Great. If you're heading to Hawaii, you can't go wrong with these dates as the island nation enjoys blissful weather year round. Otherwise, flights to the mainland feature winter, spring and summer dates. Choose winter for snow and thin crowds, spring for comfortable sightseeing weather or summer for peak-season beach-bumming. The choice is yours.
