[FARE GONE] Qantas – $225: Los Angeles / San Francisco – Auckland, New Zealand. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A great deal to New Zealand. ITA will price this at $366, but CheapOair will price this at $225 for dates we tried from Los Angeles when it’s nonstop – it will be a bit more with a connection. It will also be a little bit more from San Francisco as there’s a connection and there are extra taxes for connections.

These flights are marketed by Qantas. So no upgrades for AA EXPs with SWUs.

We recommend you wait for the e-ticket number (it will be 13 digits and start with 081) to come via email, then wait a little bit more before making any prepaid arrangements. In addition, we recommend you use AA to connect to this if you are coming from other cities. Oneworld, which Qantas and AA are part of will protect you in cases of irregular operation (mechanical, weather etc) even if you are on two separate tickets.

H/T: Single_Flyer and One Mile At a Time

    Hello I have a very important question regarding this fare .

    I bought it but since it was only for 10 days duration, I would like to use it as a one way ticket and book another one way return ticket (different airline) to stay 10 more days in NZ.

    Basically I will miss the return flight of quantas , stay in NZ for 10 more days and fly another airline to return. My question Is can quantas fine me for missing the second leg of the journey?
