Star Alliance airline and United partner ANA is selling business class between Vancouver and Sydney via Tokyo from $597 roundtrip. That’s a fare worth buying separate tickets to and from Vancouver for!
This is a $218 base fare in each direction. Travel appears to be permitted through mid-December.
Key rules for fare ZKX27CAF:
- Fly Monday through Thursday in each direction
- 21 day advance purchase required
- 7 night minimum stay, 6 month maximum stay
- Tickets must be issued by August 31 — but there’s no way this fare lasts that long
- CA$500 fee for refund, CA$450 change fee
Just in case the airline decides they want to renege on such a deep discount offer, a case of seller’s remorse, I’d wait awhile after buying tickets before making additional non-refundable travel plans around the fare.
