To put those figures into context, airfares expert and I Know The Pilot founder Garth Adams explains you can usually expect to pay more than $1000 for these flights on Qantas.

"Anything under $800 is a deal," he says. "So this is amazing."

Best of all, the fares are available for travel dates between April and November, including the US summer peak season.
