QANTAS OFFERS CHEAP, CHEAP FLIGHTS FROM USA TO AUSTRALIA $ 798 return

Jump to last reply

Talk about favouritism. Qantas is offering Americans exceptionally cheap flights to Australia but it seems Aussies do not get the same cheap flights to the USA:

Qantas offers Americans $859 return flightsJanuary 12, 2010 - 10:59AM
A new $1 million marketing campaign has been launched to try to lure more visitors from the US to NSW.

The state government and Qantas are spending the cash trying to further exploit a market which in 2009 provided the fourth highest number of visitors to NSW.

Qantas is promoting round-trip flights from LA and San Francisco for $US798 ($A859) and from New York for $US998 ($A1074).

Comparatively, Qantas sale fares from Australia to Los Angeles return started from $A1432, according to the airline's website.


Tourism minister Jodi McKay said the state government was promoting the region this week through G'Day USA, an annual festival which this year includes events in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, San Diego and Palm Springs to promote Australian film, wine, food, tourism, trade and fashion.

Celebrity chef Neil Perry is part of the campaign, promoting Sydney restaurants in the US.

"Neil is playing an important role in this year's G'Day USA event by showcasing Sydney's global appeal as a superb dining destination and promoting the excellent fresh produce and great wines available in NSW," Ms McKay said.

The minister said there were 2.7 million international overnight visitors to NSW in the year to September 2009, of which 228,000 were from the US.
