Has anyone found or seen any flights to Australia (Adelaide in particular) next summer for less than �1000 return per person? I went to see my son this summer and paid �875 for Manchester to Adelaide. I am now being quoted �1400 on average. I appreciate that the cost of fuel has impacted on this but I would welcome comments/advice etc as to what's the best course of action.

I've just looked on the BA website and put in two random dates, out on 3rd June, back on 24th and it's quoted me �841 from Heathrow to Adelaide

Thanks - I will have a look now.

I have checked for July/August and it's �676 out and �700 back - I'm presuming that the prices shown for one way.

I've just gone through to the point where they display the total price payable and it is �1382.20. Considering the fact that fuel prices have come down, I think this is unreasonable. Any comments anyone?
I can't believe it's got much to do with fuel surcharges. If June costs �841 and July �1300+, I gues it's just because more people want to travel then, school holidays here and all that.

Just looked for the latest date on the site, out end September, back 14th October and it's �1100, seems to bear it out

Thanks again for your input. I'll just have to wait til my son comes out in December '10!
You might find it cheaper flying into Melbourne than Adelaide. You can then do the beautiful coastal trip to Adelaide.
How about Austravel? www.austravel.com Be sure and get on their email list and get sent offers as they appear. They have deals with most of the airlines, in my experience Singapore Airlines and Emirates have been much more enjoyable than my flights with BA or Quantas.

Right now they are showing flights to Adelaide with Cathay Pacific for �784, valid for travel up to 11th June 2006, book by 31 October.
