Delta – About $1,000: Los Angeles – Sydney / Brisbane / Melbourne, Australia. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A rare “sale” to Australia. We say “sale” because even thought this is cheaper than normal by at least $200, it still doesn’t meet our 6 cents per mile criterion.

There is availability for about $1,000 to:

  • Sydney [SYD]
  • Brisbane [BNE]
  • Melbourne [MEL]

US Passport holders – you must apply for an Electronic Travel Authority from the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection in order to travel to Australia.
