Reasonably-priced flights from $1610 to Northern and Western Europe with oneworld carrier Finnair for the rest of the year (excluding the northern summer and the lead-up to Christmas).
Finnair customers from Australia fly on a oneworld partner airline like Qantas or Cathay Pacific to Asia and then take a Finnair flight to Helsinki, their main hub, for any connections within Europe.
Your best points-earning strategy would be to credit miles to your Qantas or Asia Miles account, but be aware that deep discount fares like these may only earn 25% or less of actual miles flown.
This offer ends 30 April for travel from now until 3 June; 1 September to 10 December; and 24 December 2016 to 29 February 2017.
Thanks for sharing – that’s pretty much the going rate you can get economy sale fares from currently due to the airline price war driven by cheap oil so it’s not especially cheap Matt (maybe only compared to flights from a few years ago).
Picking random dates to make a booking in October gives $1465 return to Dublin on a combo of Virgin Australia and Etihad or Emirates for $1478
For September random dates come out at $1557 Lufthansa/ Qantas
At times you can travel hack a fare for around $1000 by hacking your way to a gateway in Asia like SIN, MNL or CMB – see back in October 2015 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/215746
Also in Feb 2016 we saw Etihad to Rome for $949 return from Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney
