I fly from Bangkok to Melbourne return every three months. Normally pay $700-$750 now can't get anything under $1200.What's going on? Always use Qantas or Emirates. Usually book 6 weeks ahead.
What date are you looking at? Is it school holidays?
There are plenty of other airlines which will be much cheaper anyway. I definitely would not choose Qantas on that route.
No would not be school holiday season. Just that I have been flying from Bangkok to Melbourne return every 3 months for the past 2 years or more and can't understand the sudden jump in price. I even looked at Jetstar and they're up around $1000 plus. I did notice it was cheaper the reverse direction ie.Melbourne to Bangkok return, so it could something at the Thailand end.
.When I fly Emirates they are more, however the time suits me better.
I just checked Thai Air, Mel to Bangkok Return. Flying out on the 1 Aug and coming back on 30. Price is 710 AUD.
If you go to Skyscanner .com and look. I normally get my tickets from Bestjet.. They might charge a fee depending on the card you use..
I just checked you could look a Thai /Jetstar for about 976 AUD. I would book it with Jetabroad. Have used them before.
Thanks, yes I saw that, I use Skyscanner mainly. But my original question why have Qantas and emirates even Jetstar put up their prices by $400-$500 from 3 months ago, as I said I've been flying this route for 2 years or more with the same airlines. Thanks anyway.
The confusion is understandable.
