I’m seeing cheap airfare from Austin (AUS) to several cities in Australia. Round-trip flights to Melbourne (MEL), Sydney (SYD), and Brisbane (BNE) are going for about $1170 at the moment, which is about $500 less than what the route is normally priced at. Fare rules allow a free stopover, so you will probably want to do a multi-city itinerary rather than a round-trip.

[07/8/2014 @ 11:44 AM] Deal looks dead. Price now $1667.

Hmm. Austin to Hong Kong or Tokyo, which to choose? Why not Hong Kong and Tokyo to Osaka and Kyoto for $947 + $148 rail for the 2015 cherry blossom season?

[06/30/2014 @ 3:11 PM] Price has increased to $980.
[07/16/2014 @ 7:30 PM] The fare used to create this itinerary is no longer available at a discount.

It’s rare to see a cheaper flight from Austin (AUS) to Hong Kong (HKG) than out of Houston (IAH) but apparently it happens now and then. Flights from Austin (AUS) to Hong Kong (HKG) are $818 round-trip, 1-stop. Fare allows two stopovers, one each direction and a free open-jaw!

[06/30/2014 @ 3:13 PM] Price has increased by $19 to $837.
[07/16/2014 @ 7:28 PM] United is no longer offering this route, but American Airlines is for $837.

Consider this: It currently costs about $1185 to fly round-trip from Houston (IAH) to Amsterdam (AMS). If you’re going to do that, you may as well put that fare to work. Instead you could fly from Houston to Amsterdam then to Mumbai (Bombay) India, then to Paris and then back home for less than the cost of the regular round-trip itinerary.

[07/01/2014 @ 9:40 AM] Orbitz link now points to different dates, as original dates used in this post are more expensive.
[08/31/2014 @ 12:23 AM] Removed from deal list. Will re-add when I’m able to find a similar fare with similar components.

Delta has flights from Austin (AUS) to Oakland (OAK) or San Jose (SJC) at $200 round-trip with 1-stop. Those of you that weren’t able to get in on the deal a few days ago to San Francisco for $227 now have another shot at getting out there. Getting to San Francisco from Oakland (OAK) airport is pretty trivial. Jump on the BART.

I’m seeing really cheap flights from Houston (IAH) to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV). Round-trip flights with one-stop are $760 for flights departing in the winter until spring 2015.

[08/03/2014 @ 8:50 PM] Deal gone. Next lowest is Turkish for $811.

Talk about deal of the century! The Dear Leader has graced us with an awesome fare to North Korea. If you never want to be heard from again, or want to shoot some hoops with the Supreme Leader and Dennis Rodman, flights from Beijing (PEK) to Pyongyang (FNJ) are super-duper cheap right now. Round-trip nonstop flights between Beijing (PEK) to Pyongyang, North Korea (FNJ) is a whopping $0.00 at the moment.

[06/21/2014 @ 11:33 PM] Reports from that those that have been crazy enough to try to book a ticket – It hangs when you get to the final purchase portion. No dice. 🙁
