Our projected leaving time would be mid august 2009. Right now I can find a one way ticket on Air Pacific for $742. Since they don't have dates/prices online for a whole year and a half in advance, I don't know how to compare that price (2x) for estimating a return flight vs. what the airline might offer me at this stage a year in advance. I know that I can call them and find out, but I was just curious as to what people here spent on the plane ticket, or what their experiences in general were regarding airfare.
we are definitely NOT going through BUNAC as it is sooooooooooo much cheaper to just fill out the paperwork yourself since its on both the Australian and New Zealand government websites! For US residents its only about 120 USD for Australia and FREE FREE FREE for New Zealand.
