This promotion is suited to those who don’t mind a longer journey and perhaps want to add on a stopover in Fiji.
Fiji Airways selling cheap tickets from Melbourne to Los Angeles for the shoulder seasons of September-November and February-May, but be aware of the longer travel time versus direct services.
With non-stop Qantas and United services flying just over 14 hours on the way there and 16 hours on the way back, the 31-hour outbound and 29-hour return journey on Fiji Airways is not for the fainthearted.
However, these are some of the cheapest tickets to the US we’ve seen this year, so jump on it quick if it suits you!
