      First time i've seen it this cheap with full service + direct!

      Last time there was a sale, it was ~700-800 with Qantas.

      •  

        Last was $450 with Jetstar so not too bad i guess.

        Is QANTAS worth the premium over budget airlines?

        •  

          Direct is always the best option, Im located in Brisbane and have always stopped in Cairns for Sydney for a few hours. With Jetstar they also dont provide entertainment + food + luggage without cost.

        •  

          @Omayga:

          With JS it ends up $600+ just to pick ya seat and 20kgs

    •  

      Of course, I bought return flights from Melbourne for $401 just a month ago. A stopover in Cairns for 2.5 hours but no big deal. Splitting the flight into 3.5 hours and 7.5 hours is not such a bad thing. A budget airline to Europe might be uncomfortable but I don't see the point in paying extra for full service on a flight of this length.

      •  

        Yeah, but that doesn't include food or luggage does it?

        •  

          No, but in Cairns from 9:30am until midday and then a 7.5 hour flight. Happy to have a meal at Cairn's airport, take a snack on that flight and eat when I arrive at the airport (Tokyo airport is cheap enough). Maybe I'm a true OzBargainer because I do take a couple of sandwiches onto flights sometimes ;) On the way back, the flight leaves Tokyo at 9pm so don't really need a meal on the plane before I arrive early the next morning.

          Luggage is $60 extra for 15kg return (or $70 for 20kg) but I travel with carry-on. Assuming you did need luggage, the price difference is down to $185. That's still a lot of money for a few terrible airline meals. I could spend $30 for a couple of meals on the Jetstar flights if I really wanted.

        •  

          @dazweeja:

          Iirc it's $60 each way? I dunno I flew direct and preferred it so much more.

          That overnight flight and then hang in cairns eh.

          Let's say $401 + $120 for bags, 20kg(qantas give you 30) $40 for food that you would probably spend regardless, $561 brings the difference to $85.

          I think I'd rather do 3 extra hours at work to pay for Qantas direct, bigger seats and leg room, free entertainment, pillow blankets etc, and not have a stop over.

          Also,I have flown both Qantas and hardest to Japan.

          Of course there is nothing wrongly you don't mind, just after flying both I would prefer direct full service.

    Sydney flights above require transfer in Melbourne, not direct.

    When's the best time of year to go?
    Not interested in skiing or cold weather though.

      April / May or September / October. You can go during spring or autumn.

      •  

        Cheers. Might get serious about it now.

        Can we get by without any Japanese language skillz?
        Or does anyone recommend some kind of accommodation/tourist package deal as we've never been there before. Wouldn't want to be 'too' touristy though.

        • +3 votes

          You’ll be fine to get by without any Japanese. Japan is one of the most friendliest and easy places to travel that has a large population which do not speak English.

          Get yourself a local sim or wireless hotspot device just in case you get lost or need directions, you’ll be able to ask a local.

          Don’t think it’s nevessary to go on a tour it’s easy enough to get around yourself. Lots of info online and https://www.japan-guide.com/ is a good place to start.

        •  

          @Heybargain: Thanks, will look into it. :)

        • +2 votes

          yeah, no need to know Japanese at all. They are very friendly. All you need to do is just name the place and they will point or draw a map or take you there themselves. I asked a lady at a department store where a market was, she spoke no english at all, she said something to her colleague and took us 2 blocks away to that market. I was speechless @_@

          The only problem is when you order at restaurants that don't have English menu. But you can point at other people's food.

        •  

          @purplelady:

          Thanks again. Do we need visas to get in or anything other than a passport? Had a mate tried to go to Canada recently but they wouldn't let him in because had a DUI conviction from 30 years ago….weird. I expect the Japanese are much more sensible though?

        •  

          @EightImmortals:
          Do you have any convictions? If not you shouldn’t have an issue.

        •  

          @Heybargain: No convictions. No tattoos either. :)

        •  

          @EightImmortals: not sure about that, since I don't hold Australian passport. You'll have to check on the website. If you do need a visa, I think now they have a date range from the arrival date of when you can apply for visa.

        • +2 votes

          @EightImmortals:

          Aussies can stay up to ninety days without a visa. I've been in both April and November and both were fine. I speak about five words of Japanese and have travelled all over Honshu (the main island). I love it. I'm going back at the start of June next year which I hear is getting a bit hot and humid in Tokyo but I'll be spending most of my time in Hokkaido so should be fine.

        •  

          @dazweeja: I was in Tokyo early September few years back. It was supposed to be Autumn, but that year Autumn came late, so it was really like summer. It was HOT and HUMID -.- about 30 degree + humid. I was complaining why nobody told me it was going to be that hot lol and why nobody told me to bring stronger insects repellant. The mozzies were fierce!

  •  

    Do you get luggage and seat selection with Qantas? After doing it once before I won't be flying on long trips without exit row.

    •  

      You can pay for exit row on Qantas international flights. As this is a sale fare, you will have to pay for regular seat selection as well. Non-sale fares on Qantas international flights have free seat selection.

  •  

    I just booked flights for my anniversary (smack bang in the middle of peak season!) so miss out on these ridiculous prices as I have dates I need to be there for but yeah, mine came up to be $895 without seats chosen. You get 30kg luggage pp but it's an extra $35pp (each way I think?) to choose seats.
    We're just going to wing it and try and check-in 24 hours earlier to try and get some seats. Not too fussed where the seats are just want to be seated next to each other.

    Still, not bad for a direct flight into Osaka during peak times!

        Thanks. A simple Google search showed aunt betty is their sister company to combat expedia and the other likes. No issue price matching with flight center this time. Other times they make you jump through hoops.

    • +1 vote

      I've never been brave enough to use Aunt Betty, GoToGate, etc, in case something goes wrong. I book with STA Travel online if they're in the same range as at least they have brick-and-mortar shops and Aussie call centres.

      •  

        With most airlines you can immediately verify the booking from the airline website using the booking reference.
        You run into problems if you need to make any changes, or if there are cancellations / schedule changes and you need to rebook. Airlines will tell you to contact the agency you booked with.
        They can be hard to contact (limited business hours, hour long or more waiting periods - not fun if you're overseas with limited internet / phone service) and changing the cooking may cost more.

    • +1 vote

      I booked using them and it was quite straightforward. It is affiliated with Flight Centre judging from the Paypal transaction code.

      •  

        I didn't know that. A sub-brand of Flight Centre apparently. I might price-match with Aunt Betty at Flight Centre in the future.

    •  

      Booked with Aunt Betty once no problem. Booked with cheapoair twice, one problematic and no problem with the other one. Booked witbmh gotogate once no problem. Personally if I can book directly with the airline for the same price, I would.
      These booking sites also charged service fee on top of what they are offering so be mindful of that.

    Better off paying a bit more and flying JAL, ANA or Cathay Pacific rather than being humiliated by the QF surly service

    •  

      Care to share your experience with Qantas?

      • +1 vote

        Qantas is fine but not the best.
        I would prefer JAL, ANA or Cathay Pacific over Qantas if it wasn't for Qantas FF.
        Apart from better service, all three have more legroom and free seat selection.

    I need to go next month, no deals for Nov 2017 :(

  •  

    Just wondering seeing all these deals always but is i want that flight just another reseller like expedia etc. And do the same rules apply whereby not booking through directly to airlines themselves = risk of double booking or commonly rocking up to gate and having no seat booked for you?? Or have IWTF been good to others? Real jelly im getting married next yr otherwise I'd have annual leave to book one of these.

    Have the xmas week off but no cheap flights :(

  •  

    How do you see the Osaka deals? Can't figure out on the website

  •  

    Yep this is too hard to pass up since I was looking at going to japan during those times anyway.

  •  

    Does anyone have any idea how long these deals hang around for? I'm keen to get in on this deal but likely won't have the funds for a few weeks

  •  

    just wondering, can i use credit mastercard as a "debit mastercard" since there is higher fee for credit mastercard?

    Yay I just booked mine. Can we please have a OzBargain Meetup in Tokyo or Osaka? :)
