Airfare Deal: To Save, Take the Long Road Down Under on an A380

August 2, 2013 at 2:13 PM | by | Comment (1)

After a few years of unfavorable exchange rates, the US dollar is now trading with Aussie dollars at a favorable rate, thus going a little further when traveling the outback or climbing the bridge in Sydney. Usually a barrier of heading to the Great Barrier reef from the States is a high price tag on tickets, super long flights, or both. While we cannot magically make flying from the US to Australia shorter, we can let you know when they are cheap(er).

On a recent search for flights from Los Angeles to Sydney, we came across an interesting option that really never crossed our mind before, that of traveling through China. Before you stop reading because you're all about traveling with the fewest stops, please hear us out as this one could be pretty cool.

The fares are valid on non-stops from Singapore's US cities, but there's five excellent routes from which to choose:

Air Pacific is Done and Gone; Long Live Fiji Airways!

Where: Fiji
June 27, 2013 at 11:23 AM | by | Comments (0)

The day Fiji has patiently awaited is now arrived. Today marks the official first day Air Pacific becomes Fiji Airways. This is more than just a new name and paint job; it's a return to the original identity for the national carrier for all 333 islands of Fiji

We will admit to having a tiny soft spot in our heart for the brightly colored, rainbow tail of Air Pacific, but we can't get enough of the 'Masi' indigenous design of the new Airbus A330s and existing 737s. With a fresh new outside, the planes are going to woo passengers with completely over-hauled economy cabins and business-class seats that feature angled flat-bed seats to ensure your comfy on that long flight to paradise.

Along with all of the bells and whistles, flight attendants will be sporting a whole new look that mirror the natural tones of brown and cream in the cabin while still maintaining a tropical island feel. Cabin crew will create that island feel before you even land with pops of turquoise on a field of traditional Fijian design.

After showing off some of the raddest retro travel ads from the South Pacific, it's an absolute pleasure to see that Air New Zealand is making it a whole lot more affordable to wander around the islands of the region. The airline's new Explorer Pass is the best way to add on a few new destinations to your itinerary.

Exclusively for flights originating from North America, the pass allows travelers to island hop all around the South Pacific with a pricing structure similar to that of a taxi cab. Based on zones, adventurers can explore 27 destinations in domestic New Zealand, Australia, and nine South Pacific islands including Tahiti, The Cook Islands and Fiji with easy add-on fares.

June 12, 2013 at 9:32 AM | by | Comments (0)

Last week, we amy have mentioned how great Australia is to travel to even during their Winter. Well, it seems like Qantas agrees since they've just made it a little more affordable to hop down under.

The Red Roo picked up on our first reason to head to Oz and created their "Just How Great is the Barrier Reef?" fare sale. The deal showcases the wonders of not only the Great Barrier Reef, but also the further delights the "Lucky Country" has to offer.

If you've followed along with our incredible journey on none other than the Singapore Airlines A380, we've got super awesome news: the mega flight deals of Singapore Airlines have returned, with a definite focus on getting Americans to Asia during the summer season.

Does Priceline's 'Name Your Own Price' Actually Work for Airfares?

April 18, 2013 at 11:30 AM | by | Comment (1)

"Name Your Own Price." What a tempting offer, and it's one the Priceline travel booking website offers to anyone who's game. We're game. Name our own price for a hotel? Do it all the time. Name our own price for a rental car? Sure. But name our own price for a flight? Stressful!

So we tried it out.

Deciding to name your own price means you must be flexible in two very important areas: airline and flight times. Priceline will allow you to secure flights on exact dates, with exact airports of your choice, but you've got to let them take care of everything else if you're to get a sweet deal. Luckily for us, we weren't going to be picky on a last-minute itinerary for fun.

So here's what happened.

How to Vacation on Tahiti for Free? Just Buy a Flight on Air Tahiti Nui.

February 1, 2013 at 11:52 AM | by | Comments (0)

At some point in your travel life, you're going to want to visit Tahiti. It's inevitable and, duh, you should give in to the desire, but the only huge obstacle is typically price for such a trip.

Luckily for a period, Air Tahiti Nui is giving flyers free 3-night vacations in Tahiti if you book a roundtrip flight on them from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand, with optional continuing service on to Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne.

The price for the whole shindig, flights and 3-night Tahiti stopover at either the Le Meridien or Manava resorts included, is $1,298, which is really awesome if you can keep to the cheapest option of LA-Auckland.

JetBlue Knocks 80% off Flights from New York with Juicy 'NYCFlightWeek' Deals

January 28, 2013 at 2:24 PM | by | Comments (0)

Woooo hoo! #NYCFlightWeek has arrived! We didn't know what it was until noon today and now we can't imagine our life without it because it's already saved us a boatload on a dream winter trip. No joking. Listen up.

#NYCFlightWeek begins on Twitter, when the @JetBlue account tweets that 12pm EST is the time to watch for, at which point they'll tweet the link to the day's special 80% off airfares. Each has a promo code that strips the 80% off published airfares right on their official JetBlue.com site.

Today was the first day and it'll continue all through the rest of the week. So, what's the verdict? Judging from the first destination offerings of St. Maarten, Liberia, Costa Rica and Fort Myers, FL, travelers who can drop everything and jet off this or next week are in for some unbeatable deals. That's the only problem—there's limited availability on seats and dates, so travelers who are most flexible will be the ones to really cash in on NYCFlightWeek.
