Delta – $1,217: Miami / Philadelphia – Sydney, Australia. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Did you miss it last month when Delta put Australia on sale from US Air and American hubs for about $1,200? Delta is at it again. This fare was originally at $1,300 — so this is a price drop!

For about $40 more, you can also go to Brisbane [BNE] or Melbourne [MEL] instead, but availability is not as good. And finally, there’s good availability for Thanksgiving break!
