As reported by View from the Wing, there are some excellent airfares today from the west coast to New Zealand and Australia, with direct flights starting at $619.

Direct from Los Angeles to Auckland is pricing the best, at $619 round trip on Qantas or $629 on United:

LAX-AKL May 9 - May 16

United flights credited to Singapore KrisFlyer should earn 1 KrisFlyer mile per mile flown — meaning that this round trip to Auckland for $629 would also earn you enough Singapore miles for a one-way domestic USA saver award on United.

San Francisco is also available at $643:

SFO-AKL May 9 - May 16

Australia is also on sale, with direct flights from Los Angeles to Sydney on Qantas, Virgin Australia, and United for $656-$662:

LAX-SYD May 9-16LAX-SYD UA May 9-16

This time, San Francisco prices out a few bucks cheaper yet:

SFO-SYD May 9-16

According to Airfarespot, dates are available in May and from August through November.

These prices are unlikely to last.  Always check the terms of the site from which you buy, but you should have 24 hours from time of booking to cancel should you change your mind.

If you haven’t seen J.M. Hoffman’s amazing Australian wildlife photos, You Gotta See This — but fair warning, it’s going to make you want to book first and ask questions later.
