Flying cheaply from Istanbul to Sydney

We are flying over for April 2015 and planning to fly into Heathrow and then work our way down through various countries arriving in Istanbul for four nights. I'm trying to find the cheapest and quickest way to get back from Istanbul to Sydney without travelling back to London. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Quickest and possibly cheapest is Emirates via DBX. There is certainly no need to go back to London.

And, if you are lucky, Turkish Airlines will have their direct IST-SYD flight up and running by then. Unlikely, but possible.

Alternatively Malaysia/Emirates/Etihad all have one way fares from IST-SYD for about $1000Aud at tthat time of year.

I love it when the only advice someone can give you is to search on the matrix ita software, meaning they have never actually done the trip!

-------

It doesn't mean that at all and it's pretty pathetic that your second post of here is a personal attack.

It means that air fares vary all the time and there are new entrants coming in, for example Turkish airlines are having big drive to expand routes and capture markets, so look it up yourself because someone's past experience may not longer.

Asiana via Seoul perhaps. Anyone know what happened to Turkish Airlines flights to Perth or did I imagine that?

Joseph, thank you for such an insightful 2nd post of your lifetime.

In fact, the original suggestion to use ita software is the best suggestion, and much more helpful and correct than the advice you gave.

Despite you stating Singapore Air is the quickest and cheapest option, you are incorrect by a large $$ and significant time margin.

Qantas/Emirates/Etihad all offer a significanttly cheaper (at least by half) and 1hr quicker service than the SQ flight suggested.

If you are going to Istanbul then I will say use Turkish Airlines on your return.
