I did a quick search for June 2008 last night and came up with the following.....
........... Try MISA Traval in Singapore (www.airfares.com.sg)

Perth to Singapore return AU$332.60 (Singapore Airways)
Singapore to London return AU$754.36 (Qantas)

So I make that AU$1146.96 for 1 Adult.
I'm pretty sure the prices include taxes, I went all the way just short of booking the flights, but if I'm wrong I'm sure someone will tell me!

Hi

I've just done the same exercise with MISA, but from Sydney to London via Singapore, using Singapore Airlines all the way, in September 2008 and can't get better than Au $ 2040 all in , which is about the best fare being quoted on the sites over here - Webjet etc.

Yeah, those fares don't sound correct to me....be careful with Misa travel....not that there's anything wrong with them but they do list fares on the site which are only available to certain people.....i.e. employees of shipping companies (who have deals with the airlines) who need to be positioned in certain places.....if you then didn't have the appropriate ID at check-in you would be denied travel or have to pay up. These fares are often the super cheap ones listed on the website.....check the small print. And no, those fares dont include taxes.

Oh and thank you btw
by all accounts it was good, "modern" aircraft, friendly English speaking crew, hassle free journey
on the downside was the slightly suspect food and having to do a fuel stop in Poo Dung or some such place
they travelled business class but didn't pay thru the nose for it

No, it really didn't look that good, even if you could understand it.
