Also, try to call them and book and you might be able to get a good deal. If it's not cheaper than online, don't book it. Another option is to place a bid on Priceline and try to get a cheaper price. You won't be told the time you leave, only the date. LASTLY.....the airlines that go through China are relatively inexpensive but I think the layovers can be something like 12 hours.

My advice...book with Qantas or V Australia only!
Ooh! thats close!! you get to enjoy summer here and miss winter there before heading over though.

Thanks for all the tips! I have heard tuesdays and wednesdays are the best days to buy your tickets, and Mondays are the best days to leave - but I wasn't sure.

I'm flying from Boston through San Francisco to Sydney, ideally; and I definitely want only one stop/layover, which leaves the price around $1500 . I could technically leave from pretty much any New England area airport, though. I would go through LA if it was cheaper, but I hate LAX. I have always flown united and qantas, but I would fly other companies if they were cheaper, probably.

I like to book separate legs. I book a trip from BOS to HNL (Hawaii) and then layover. Then I book a jetstar sale flight (if I can) to get back to CNS or SYD.

I find that this is often cheaper (by several hundred dollars) than booking straight through. The last trip I did would have been 14-1500 straight, but booked separately it was 900.

G'luck.
