I know that this will seem stupid to ask but.........if we could get a free flight to Narita,(TOKYO) Japan from the USA-would it be any cheaper or would we be able to get a better deal down to Australia or NZ from there than the USA?
I am trying all angles in order to get a reasonable fare to OZ or NZ for 4 in January. Does anyone have any info on the better discounted air/or with vacation package sites for that area of the world? I have tried the Quantas and a few others but everything is easily over $3000 USD for 10 days at only 3 star places.Our family can only travel in January and I know that it is high season. Thanks!

Try Hawaii - Australia OR Fiji to Australia and see if you can get good connections $ to those areas.

What I do is subscribe to travelocity email list for price changes on the route I want. I have looked into air pacific via fiji, but at the time they matched the qantas fares. In some cases a round the world airfare may let you beat some holiday restrictions (fr NYC for example)
