This was discussed a whle back, but it's starting to come to fruition. AirAsiaX plan to fly Sydney to Stanstead via Malaysia for $1000 return.

What? Competition? How un-Australian is that? I'm sure there must be something the government can do to step in and make sure it never happens.

Seriously though, that looks good. Flying from Newcastle instead of Sydney has some real savings for the airlines, as the Sydney International/Domestic consortium charge outrageous fees to both airlines and passengers.

I'd say though that they are bound to be packing in the seats on these flights making a KL stopover an absolute must. Back in the day when some of the UK charter airlines (Airtours etc) used to do Oz routes over Winter I know some people who flew 'em and vowed never again!

..... and I see that Virgin Blue is trying to open up on the Australia - California run, presumably to link up with their LHR-LA service.

Wouldn't be cheap mind you.

Don't like the idea of narrow seats though, would be a nightmare if you git seated next to fatty for 13 hours

Who have you been talking to? Yes, I'm all fine again now, by the looks of things.

Fingers crossed...
