This can’t possibly last and is unlikely to even stick, but I just booked two of us round trip from Dallas to Melbourne, Australia for $152 each. The Flight Deal reports availability through next May.
Find cheap dates at Google Flights (where they are showing as low as $281 and then book through Priceline for the deepest discount. This fare is available through next May on select dates. The Flight Deal reports it requires a 7-day minimum stay and Monday through Thursday departures in either direction.
Hold off on making plans
I wouldn’t make any nonrefundable plans for at least a few weeks to make sure this gets honored.
Run, don’t walk. Go in with low expectations and be pleasantly surprised if everything works out as planned. This would be an amazing deal if it sticks. You’ll have through 11:59pm ET tomorrow night to cancel through Priceline, so book now and think about it later. See You’ve gotta see this! Melbourne and Sydney if you need any more encouragement than $152 RT already provides.
