Canadian cities to Australia roundtrip (Sydney SYD, Brisbane, BNE or Melbourne MEL) $920 to $970 + A$175 for New Zealand

Deal Link:
Haven't seen YYZ to Oz deals below 1K in a while. Connect thru LAX on either Virgin Australia, Delta, or United.

Valid for select dates in late July, August, September, October, November 2018

I surprisingly enjoyed my MEL to LAX United flight on a 787 a couple Octobers ago.

EDIT 06/26: Qantas now available with some of these dates. You can also openjaw your itinerary. i.e., fly into Melboune, fly home from Sydney.

EDIT 06/29: There's a Jetstar Australia-New Zealand round trip deal for AUD 175 (about par with our CAD). The July-Sept dates line up with the YYZ-LAX-MEL/SYD/BNE deal.

EDIT 07/01: Deal is also valid from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal, and Ottawa.

You may be in the company of some very beautiful women. I have done this connection (L.A. to Australia & back) before & it was awesome!

Even though it is VA ticket which air line is it from Toronto to LA assuming you have switch planes for the 3 he layover. Also what is best time to visit Australia based on the weather over there. What is good starting point (sample iternary) Melbourne vs Sydney as it showing cheaper.

It's Air Canada for the VA deal btw YYZ-LAX.

I went up and down the east coast a couple Octobers ago, and it was a bit cool during evenings (low to mid teens) in Melbourne and Sydney, but otherwise the daytime weather (low to mid 20s) was great. Queensland was muggy hot (30+ daily) from Brisbane up to Cairns.

I'll put it this way. Normally this trip costs 4 figures. Unless you can score discounted flights via a frequent flyer program, Toronto-Aussie flights in the $900s are always a good price.

There was a rare deal a year ago in the 700s, but that was a 2-stopper: fareboom-flight-toronto-sydney-783-return-2109034/

I don't normally trust going through a 3rd party. If something happens at the airport I'd rather just deal directly with the airline.

My understanding is the $940/$960 prices are through Momondo

I was just about to ask this lol right now I’m looking at 2.5-3 weeks but I don’t know if that’s enough. Luckily for me I don’t feel the jetlag
