First, and probably obviously, no, none of us have any sense of seat sales for specific location on specific airlines. Unless you need the stop-overs, you can fly the other way with only one stop, all on QF.
You didn't say if you wanted to fly next week, next month or next fall, so even if we new of alternate methods, we couldn't respond in a helpful way.
GeoMedic, August is the month and I would like a couple of days stopover in Singapore as well. To get back to Oz I would make my own way over to L.A. from N.Y. then L.A. to Brisbane with VAustralia. Qantas is not one of my fav. airlines I am afraid. Can you think of any pitfalls that I can't see? Thanks. I see I make a spelling mistake in the header.
Crikey another! I need a proof reader!
I understand. Everybody makes spelling mistakes here so don't worry. I'd rather see spelling errors than a string of non-punctuated text notation.
Singapore has some terrific stop-over deals so I can see that reasoning too. You'll probably hear from others before I get up in the morning and can give some thought to it.
Not much chance of a sale in August - peak travel season in the northern hemisphere. You might check out the month-long option at ITA software to see if certain days might be better than others:
also look at flights originating in SYD - much larger marketEdited: 01 February 2010, 04:00
pojaya yes I was a few hours ago however I just now have booked it with Air Asia in a sale, Gold Coast Queensland to Stansted U.K. via K.L. Then L.A. back to Brisbane with V australia. So now I am looking to get from London to New York one way in August cheaply! Also have to get across USA from N.Y. to L.A. I will shout if I run into trouble. Thank you all for your help.
Ouch. That is probably going to cost you more than a round the world ticket via Star Alliance would have and without all the connection guarantees. Too late now, so be sure to check airlines like IcelandAir, and plan to spend at least a day on the ground in London as airlines will not cover you if you are late for separately booked flights. In the US look to airlines such as Southwest and JetBlue for lower cost one-ways to LAX from New York. If you miss a flight you may be looking at *very* expensive one-way fares up to around $3000 for some of those sections.
Thank you for those tips GeoMedic.
