  • No deal over Easter (10th to 18th April)

  • Travelled on JL to Japan back in July.
    Top airline, friendly staff, 8 abreast in Y on their 787 fleet (lots of airlines have 9 abreast), decent meals.
    Would love to fly JL again.

  • That seems like a steal if you are going for the Olympics

    • Olympics starts end of July though.

      • Maybe a great way to experience the hype and all the brand new facilities/infrastructure without the crowds.

    • Yeah, theres been absolutely no sale flights around Olympic time. i've been looking. hence all the japan sale flights for the times surrounding it.

  • What is the usual price?

    • I paid $1650 flying Qantas direct from Mel to Tokyo, back in Sept/Oct this year, school holiday though.

  • Note also that Class O fares do NOT have advance seat selection available…

  • Never to the slopes. Such a tease.

  • If it's class 0 and no advance seat selection, does that mean you have to wait until a few days before the flight to select rather than at the time of booking? Or does this mean you don't get to choose at all?

  • Brilliant! July NSW school holidays, departing from Melbourne, for $783.

    Thanks for that!

  • I wish they go to Haneda airport. Unfortunately, the search indicates only to Nartia.
    In my case, Narita airport is not an option :(

    • IIRC only QAL and ANA fly direct into HND.
      ANA currently have a sale for a similar time period, unfortunately not as cheap as JAL but still reasonable.

      • @Shakotan
        I also thought QAL, ANA fly to HND until JAL website when you try to book a ticket that has HND and a third option for either!
        Every time I/we been to Japan we fly SING to HND.
        I could not get a good deal outta ANA, but may have to try more dates and see what I get.

    • Why? whats wrong with narita?
      I can get preferring haneda i suppose but what difference is there thats so big as to kill the deal?

      • Everyone's circumstance is different.
        The inlaws live west of Tokyo and they like to wait for us at the airport. That is almost 3 hours travel by car one way. At their age, 6 hours by car…….
        They also like to give us a lift back to the airport. Even a shuttle bus would take more than 3 hours…..
        add that to the 2 hours you have to be at the airport before take off…..

        • I was just curious really. I guess I was thinking about the 'problem' from solely a tourist perspective and why it would make a difference.
          So with those circumstances you describe i fully understand you now.

          Well i hope you do find some good flights into Haneda

          • @thearbiter117: Thanks mate.
            from a tourist perspective, Narita is probably the equivalent to Avalon airport when your destination is Melbourne.
            Before Haneda became an international airport, there was only Narita. I took public transport and the shuttle bus.
            When you have a good deal like this, and if i were you, i would probably take the shuttle bus that takes you to major hotels in Tokyo

  • fantastic, july school holiday only $660 each. holiday sorted
