    Does “Discount Economy” allow upgrades, for example via points ?

    Looks like they’re not direct flights (from Sydney) :(

    •  

      Saves me time looking. Thanks.

      •  

        Better to look for yourself😉

        Found plenty of direct flights for just a little more money.

        Some indirect flights are only 2.5hrs longer each way.

      There are direct flights to Tokyo from Sydney (9.5hrs) for $16rtn more.
      Haneda airport (HND) is closer to Tokyo.

      9hrs Direct from BNE

      •  

        just check November, cost $960 (non direct) and $1134 (direct) for one week trip.

        • +1 vote

          That's how it goes with flight bookings. Different dates, routes, & availability have different prices.

          I checked at a warmer time of year - 18/5 to 1/6/20 Qantas SYD - HND 9.5hr direct $687rtn.

          So direct Qantas flights at reasonable prices are there. As often happens in deals - maybe not when you want them.

          I change my travel dates & sometimes destination to fit a much cheaper price😉 Have $1 each way flights Gold Coast to Adelaide coming up next😀

        •  

          Checked a few dates for 1 week in November as you commented.

          Much cheaper Qantas flights available than you quote! (eg 6-12/11 non direct 12hr $746rtn, direct 9.5hr $758)
          Other airlines even cheaper from $614rtn.

          Again, direct Qantas flights at reasonable prices (a bit dearer than deal price) are there.

          Might be worth another search. Moving dates by a day can save hundreds per person.

    Never been to Japan, after looking at previous deals, aren't the prices kinda usual?

      Maybe usual in Deals, not usual prices!

        Fair point, prices are good but not good enough so I go all Ozbargain mode on it (buy first and contemplate on the need of what did I just purchase)

        • +3 votes

          I love Japan🎏 Lost count of the number of trips (4-10 weeks each) in over a decade. Mainly buy @$350-420 with Jetstar. Tempted…

          Rice farmer friend has invited me back at end of year to his village of 200. It's so cold & covered in snow then, but the fish & crabs are at their tastiest!

            @the INFIDEL: I went there for the first time just a month ago and really enjoyed it. I was going to take the family, but the cheapest return tickets were $1300!

              @donm: Just show them the photos & tell them your tales… I'm cheap, that's what I do😉

      only can see 18/5-22/5 at $634…others 8xx or more

      or
      11/2-25/2
      Singapore airline is selling at not too bad price for 664 pp
      (sin-stop over)

      or qantas $7xx direct flight to hnd,return with stopover- Melbourne

    •  

      That's peak travel season due to the snow. You will never find it that cheap with Qantas during snow season!

  •  

    Why can't I see these prices on Google Flights?

    •  

      It can take up to 24 hours for sale fares to show as they need to feed through. That said not sure how Google Flights will help in this situation.

    •  

      Google Flights doesnt generally show prices of the budget online ticketing agencies.

      I was looking to go between January and February, this deal completely skips those dates

        Rare to find deals for flights in January as it's still peak. In my experience deals usually start in Feb.

    How does Qantas economy compare to Jetstar economy for international flights?

    • +8 votes

      much much much better

    • +1 vote

      With Qantas, on the flight up there you get a full lunch meal with dessert and open bar. Just before landing you will get a light supper meal (ie pizza). On the way back you get dinner and breakfast just before you land.

      Qantas also flys the a330 which has wider seats than the 787. The problem with the narrow seats on the 787 is that you constantly rub shoulders with fellow passengers and it is harder to get into a sleep position. Also because the had to narrow the aisles, you are more likely to be bumped though the flight.

      For me living in Canberra, there is little value in going with Jetstar as I'd have to travel to Sydney separately and considering it's almost the same price as travelling from the other capitals, it works out better to go with Qantas as the best I'm saving with Jetstar is $100, but you miss out on food, entertainment, and baggage.

      Full service airline vs low-cost carrier - is a comparison really needed?

    • +2 votes

      say you get the jetstar ones for $500 return. Then you have to pay 50$ for food, 50$ for checked bag, 50$ if you want to use their ipads. Suddenly its just as expensive. Qantas made sure we had baby meals and had the fourth seat in our row free (travelling with 2 kids, 1 a baby with no assigned seat) and a pram to use on both legs of the journey. The food is better (more regular, more substantial, better quality), everything is better. Jetstar is fine if you're travelling as a single or couple and want to cut as much cost as possible, but its a very different experience. I wouldn't fly jetstar again if Qantas keeps up these kind of prices. Source: jetstar 2x to japan, and qantas 1x, all 3 were direct flights

    Hey Guys
    Never been to Japan but was hoping to use this to fly there next year with a couple of small children, Given the Summer Olympics starts on July 24, What you guys think will be the time to avoid the whole rush, will end of May to early June will still be busy and expensive?

    •  

      That's a pleasant time of year - warming up & before the rainy season. First week in May is one of the busiest times for locals to travel in Japan - so avoid Golden Week.

      Tourist numbers have been rising in recent years. It's gearing up for the Olympics. Accommodation prices & availability will probably be main issue. Some cheap direct flights around that time.

      Should be great - your children should enjoy it!

  •  

    cannot find the early Jan fairs. Melbourne to Tokyo. Am I missing anything here ?

  •  

    ah that May - June (Brissy) is very tempting just before the olympics so hopefully not that busy/crowded.

    •  

      so hopefully not that busy/crowded.

      Haha
      Yeah, not a thing in japan.
      But really thats a good time to go, im just having a laugh.

        - not a thing in Japan

        Japan is more than it's busy cities!

        Certainly few people in many areas I've visited. Rural Japan is sparsely populated & rarely visited by tourists. It can be an amazing, beautiful, welcoming place👍

        Spent time last trip in the Izu Peninsula - about 2.5hrs SW of Tokyo. Most Japanese haven't been there, or at least not past the end of the main rail line. The Australian Embassy has its holiday house there.
        Amazing hot springs on a cliff overlooking the sea, sea caves, beautiful curved sandy beaches, fresh seafood, watch women dive for sea creatures… Blissful & so quiet!

        Even neighbourhoods in Tokyo etc can be a calm oasis.

        It's the usual tourist spots that are unbearably crowded. Arrive early - before the mass of buses to enjoy a bit of tranquility.

        • +1 vote

          Yeah, but for 99.9% of people going, its for the 'touristy' things. So no time of year is not busy for that.

          But you are right you can still find many relaxed places if you stray away from the beaten path.
          My favourite being a town called hongu in the middle of the kii peninsula down below osaka. Beautiful town in the mountains, that was quiet but had things to do around (hikes, beautiful rivers, onsens, great food, biggest tori gate in the world and much more).

          But yeah really i was just having a joke. Plus the crowded places are still great anyway for the most part.

          EDIT: Just saw your edit. That sounds amazing. I haven't yet been when its warm enough for any water activities (been twice in November-December).
          But when i do go at a warm time that place sounds amazing. Thanks for the idea!

          • +1 vote

            @thearbiter117: Yes an amazing & beautiful area.

            Ah, the Kumano Kodo! First walked part of it's 1000 year old paths over 10 years ago. Loved it. But so much more to see.

            Japanese were surprised by a Foreigner then. Now there are organised walks. Have been keeping Hongu as a special treat.

            There are so many great places to see! I find the usual sights a bit tiring now. But I always love my favourite places in Kyoto.

            @thearbiter117: Link for Izu Peninsula

            I stayed in an Airbnb by myself there in what was an artist's studio @$40/n (dearer now) - in a forest, 5 minutes walk to the ocean,10 minutes to a sandy beach, & beside a rocky national park walk to next beach & fishing village.
            Couldn't have been quieter!

            My Hosts were amazed I loved the place so much, they tried to organise for me to buy a farmers house cheap. Explained I would need a Japanese partner, so was introduced to their cook at their cafe… Was very tempted😉

            Wish I was there now🌅

            •  

              @the INFIDEL: Thank you for the link and Airbnb suggestion. I will genuinely put that to good use at it sounds amazing and like something i'd already decided i wanted to do next trip.

              Oh man, if they tried that on me i might "fall" for. Guess i should learn how to farm so i can jump on it right away if offered :P

              I know that feeling. was looking through photos of my trips recently and its fun but painful at the same time, lol.

              Also reply, to your other post.
              Yeah the kumano kodo! I didnt walk too much of it, just several random walks from hongu itself in different directions to the 'egg' onsen (lol), further down the big river etc. Lovely place.
              Yeah no one seemed surprised by us (went with friend), i can imagine it would have been an even more different atmosphere back when you went.

              •  

                @thearbiter117: I have a copy of the Izu Peninsula tourist guide out to impress people.

                It's so unlike people's impressions of Japan. There are hills, no mountains.
                It's part of the Philippines plate that crashed into Japan. So lots of thermal activity.

                But the landscape reminded me of Australia. Bananas & passionfruit grew around my host's cafe / surf school. I was probably home sick, it was a bit like Byron Bay - without the tourists.

                The cook prepared tempura vegetables (harvested by her in the hills) - delicious. Her name meant Spring Vegetable - how appropriate. She was also a guide to the region - a GeoPark. I could have stayed… But I have had these "proposals" in a few remote regions.

                Met an old Yamabushi - (an esoteric hermit) in a backpackers in Kyoto of all places. He was in the top bunk! They train in their ascetic practices under freezing waterfalls in mountains South of Nara - part of the Kumano Kodo.
                I gave him a gas cylinder for his stove - he was so excited. He had carried the woven bamboo basket on his back for 50 years, given to him when he turned 21! Everything he owned went on his back.

                Japan - you don't know what the next experience will bring👍

    Booked thanks OP, booked directly with Qantas as the sites that IWTF was forwarding me too kept dumping on charges, flashing me warnings about buying the insurance and changing the price though checkout. Decided to pay $30 more and book easily and with peace of mind of dealing with Quantas, not idiot internet sites.
    I is excited.

    Not seeing any Jan 14 dates from Melb/Sydney

  •  

    Was too much to expect cheap pricing in Jan ex-Brisbane :( Was in Japan earlier this year, would love to go back.

  •  

    quick newbie question, when i click on the link, it took me to iwantthatflight website and i chose the date for my holiday, the ticket was only $795 pp for returned trip from Sydney to Tokyo but then i click on the price ticket and it took me to another website call "myholidays.com, the website looked very dodgy. My questions are is it reliable as it was so much cheaper than booking directly with Japan airline, what is the proper way to book the cheap flight using iwantthatflight website ? i plan to go to JP in Mar2020 for 2 weeks only but the flight on Japan airline is about $3k for 2 people returned trip. Thank you so much for your help.
