Based on initial checks, the fare seems to be quite widely available on the dates indicated above, except for weekends which obviously tend to be fairly busy days of the week to travel on.
You might even shave a buck or two off the publicised fare, which we believe is due to currency fluctuation.
Try the Qantas A380 business suite
If you have a little bit of cash to splurge, this is probably the best chance to experience Qantas’ newly refurbished A380, which features their signature business suites.
While not a new product, the A380 refresh is long overdue, given that Qantas has not touched them since it was introduced into the fleet in 2009.
The new business suites takes up most of the upper deck, and is laid out in a class-leading 1-2-1 configuration and has a fully flat bed.
How to find the new A380s?
Qantas operates the A380s from Singapore to London, Sydney and Melbourne daily. Note that there are multiple flights to Sydney and Melbourne, so be sure to check that you are on an A380.
To check if you are on a new or old A380, simply check the seat map through “Select Your Seat” before you purchase.
The older configuration will show up as a 2-2-2 configuration, while the new ones are 1-2-1.
However, based on several booking experiences, it seems like seat selection on Qantas.com for the new configuration is not available yet. So if you see a note that says “individual seat selection is not available for this flight”, you are likely to be on the new aircraft.
For $2,999 return to Australia, this is a pretty good deal for a 7-hour flight each way, coupled with excellent food and beverage offerings on board. If you are a oneworld frequent flyer member, you can also earn quite a fair bit of points/miles on the fare.
Remember, sale ends 19 November 2019.
