2-in-1 trip: Vancouver to Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan - $865 CAD roundtrip including taxes on ANA in Business Class!

Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan

All Nippon Airways (one of the world's top airlines, ranked #3 this year) is showing an incredible price on a 2-in-1 trip from Vancouver in *BUSINESS CLASS* that allows you to visit and spend time in both Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan for $865 CAD including taxes.

The flights have 1 stop in Tokyo on the way to Sydney, and are non-stop from Sydney to Tokyo, and also non-stop from Tokyo back home to Vancouver.

NOTE: These are booking class Z tickets (heavily discounted Business Class). But you still earn 125% of the miles. On these flights that's nearly 30,000 miles! ANA Mileage Chart.

These are tickets that are *supposed *to cost more like $5500 to $6,000 !

Availability for travel

late August, September, October, November, December 2017

(December 7 appears to be the latest in the year you can depart. You can return pretty much any time in the first half of 2018, as far away as June 7th, 2018).

NOTE: Many more date combinations than what are listed above appear to work (although only within these months). You can try playing around with different dates to give yourself more or less time in Japan or Australia. I'll keep adding more dates to this post as I find them.

These will be disappearing like lightning. Don't give up just because one set of dates has sold out. Keep trying different dates, even slightly different dates from what I've posted can make a difference (those dates are likely to sell out first). Try focusing on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday dates.

I'm adding some more working dates now that I have a minute. Feel free to comment below and post dates you've tried that are working to help out your fellow traveler.

4. Click through from Momonodo to the booking site showing the cheap price. Expedia is one of the booking sites showing these, and would be my pick.

If these turn out to be a mistake, historically, Expedia has been one of the better sites for honoring mistake fares (no guarantees though).

Priceline is also showing these, and they have also been pretty good at getting tickets issued quickly enough during crazy demand periods of mistake fare madness. Priceline also offers completely free cancellation within 24 hours, which gives you time to decide.

Update: These are also showing up directly on the ANA website (see update below).

screenshots from Expedia





screenshots from Priceline



Update: These are also showing up directly on the ANA website

1. Go to the ANA All Nippon Airways website

(The country should be set to 'Canada' in the top right corner)

2. Click on 'Multiple Cities'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
Sydney, Australia to Tokyo, Japan (TYO)
Tokyo, Japan (TYO) to Vancouver

4. Change the 'Class Fare' from Economy to Business Class

5. Try dates from the list above

NOTE: Once your search completes, you should see some options at the top. Change it from Special to Special Plus. Extra special indeed!

screenshot from the ANA All Nippon Airways website



IMPORTANT: Keep your expectations low until it's clear that these tickets have been issued and will be honored. I know it's very exciting, but I just don't want to see anyone's dreams crushed! It's usually clear within 12-24 hours whether or not the tickets have been issued and will be honored.



Update @ 1:10 PM PST / 2:10 PM MST / 3:10 PM EST - I think this is over now. I haven't seen any dates in the last 20 minutes that are still working. I will update the post as soon as I hear from people about the status of their ticket.

Generally in these situations, if all goes well, you should receive a booking confirmation code (6 characters) or ticket # (13 digits) that you can use to check your reservation directly on the ANA website. If that happens, it's a good sign, because it means ANA has issued the tickets and your reservation is solid.

Update 8/8 - It's been 3 days, and with the weekend well over, giving ANA more than enough time to deal with this, it's now safe to say that it appears ANA is going to be honoring what was the largest mistake fare they've ever had, and one of the largest mistake fares of the year from any airline.

- Quite a few people have heard from ANA customer service reps confirming that ANA is going to be honoring all tickets that were actually issued.

- The only cancellations I've heard of were from bookings made through booking sites that were not fast enough at actually getting the tickets issued (such as ClickMyTrip).

- You can check your booking directly on the ANA website, using your e-ticket number.

- A huge thank you to ANA for honoring this.

- Congratulations to everyone that was able to book this, and enjoy your multi-continental trip in business class!

Here is some info on the airport lounges you will get free access to, because you are flying business class

TOKYO (HND) - At Tokyo's Haneda airport look for the ANA Lounge. You do not get access to the ANA Suite Lounge (that's for first class). But the ANA Lounge for business class is also very nice! You can read the reviews on Yelp.

SYDNEY (SYD) - At Sydney airport look for the Air New Zealand International Lounge. You get free access to Air New Zealand's lounge because you are flying on a Star Alliance partner (ANA).

You can find some more info and a map on the Air New Zealand website

    I think the deal is over. All of the results are now over >5000. But oddly enough, in the airline filters sidebar on Momondo, it's still showing the low price for Nippon. But the results don't display it. If you pick the filter, you can see the low priced results grayed out behind the warning that "no matches were found". I guess it's showing cached results and the actual results are gone?

    Could be over or nearly there. Having trouble finding dates for $865. Seeing some dates on the ANA website for $915 such as Oct 16-23-30 and Aug 29-Sep 5-Sep 12 but with 1 seat left. Be sure to share if you spot any more!

    Has Jess been here?
       Jess on August 5th, 2017

    Just spoke to FairGeek... These tickets should be confirmed if their Business Class or not within in 2-3 hours depending on who you booked with, and if your from Canada... You have till midnight tonight to cancel with a full refund. Personally regardless business class or not still a great deal !

    Update @ 11:21 AM PST - She's not quite a goner yet. Just saw Oct 16-23-30 for $865 on the ANA website, but 1 seat remaining. So there could still be more out there.

    Thanks for the great deal!! I booked directly on the ana webpage and have a recieved a Delivery of e-Ticket and confirmation number . does this mean its official??

    Or should i still wait 24-48 hours before booking my flights to YVR (holding off on booking my flights to YVR until i know for sure)

    Thanks again, you're awesome!!

    Hi H, I would still hold off for a day or so yet, just to make sure. If an airline is going to retract on a mistake fare it's always within 24 hours or so. Thanks for the update on receiving the e-ticket and confirmation number, that is always a very good sign!

    I don't want to get anyone's hopes too high, but I have yet to see an airfare deal with ANA where the e-ticket was issued that did not work out. This is obviously a pretty unusual case though, since it's business class and not economy, and the tickets were about $5000 less than normal!

    Has Matt been here?
       Matt on August 5th, 2017

    Booked through Expedia, got my confirmation, I logged on to the ANA website and even have my seats assigned. It ended up costing $1100, econo on the way there and business class back. What are the chances this will get cancelled?

    Has Sheila  been here?
       Sheila on August 5th, 2017

    I'm so disappointed, and I've definitely learned my lesson. I found out about the deal at 10:30AM PST, booked right away through momondo before I learned it was available on the ANA website too. The website I booked through momondo was a sketchy website but I felt desperate so I booked anyways. When I learned it was available on ANA, i didn't want to risk double booking so I left it. And then my first booking got canceled, but then I couldn't find any more dates with the price. Such bad luck :(

    Has Chris Myden been here?
       Chris Myden on August 5th, 2017

    Hi Matt,

    Based on the past history of airfare glitches (most amazing deals aren't truly glitches these days, they're pretty rare now) , once the tickets are issued by the airline, there's a pretty low chance the tickets would be cancelled. If they are going to be cancelled, it will be within 24 hours.

    It's also a very good sign that someone at ANA told Jess they will be honoring it.

    Called ANA after seeing an error message in issuing the e ticket as well as a delay compared to the other posters here. I have a reservation but no ticket (Oct 16-23-30/31). They are not going to honour the price from the sounds of it since the e ticket was not immediately emailed out and they will just cancel the pending credit card charge. ???? I might argue with a different supervisor tomorrow.

    Has Tona been here?
       Tona on August 5th, 2017

    The worst thing you can do is call the airline. Getting them to look into it is asking for them to cancel it

    Has Serene been here?
       Serene on August 5th, 2017

    Of course, that would be silly.

    At hour 3 when I booked, ANA had already shut down the e ticketing system. I just have a meaningless reservation code with no confirmation email and there's nothing for them to cancel (learned that the hard way today). By the time I phoned at hour 10, they were well rehearsed with talking points and were never going to issue the tickets unless I paid the current fare. Chris was right to temper our expectations. Congratulations to those with confirmed flights!

    II booked YVR-SYD-HND-YVR by searching via Momondo.ca and booking through Faregeek after I had googled reviews of OTAs. It was before I had seen any mention of being able to book this on ANA or United, Expedia wasn't available and the Flight Network ones I saw disappeared.

    I had everything booked by about 12:35pm EST and got a confirmation email. Then checked my cc about an hour later and saw a charge from ANA. Got a 'ticketed email' with an ANA 6 digit confirmation number around 6:30pm EST. I then went on ANA and saw reservations details and an e-ticket PDF. I was then able to pick my seats at that time. Thanks, Chris!

    THANK YOU Chris Myden for posting this INCREDIBLE deal!!! Immediately checked out Momonodo for various dates in Oct/Nov for 2 pax, 2 weeks. Dates were available, followed the link to Expedia to book, but when I went to Confirm, Expedia kept saying Try Again (overloaded with others trying to book???) After multiple attempts of trying to confirm, I realized Expedia wasn't going to confirm it. After trying multiple other options, and about an hour later, I tried to book thru ANA. Sadly, the cheap price for my dates was not available and my dreams of flying BIZ class from YVR to Sydney & Tokyo were gone...or were they??!! I walked away but then about an hour later (so 2 hours after seeing the initial post & trying to book thru Expedia), I tried Google Flights. Same dates & flights were showing at $17,500CAD, compared to the original quote of $1732CAD (2 pax) earlier on Expedia. I altered a day here & there and to my shock, by dropping 1 day in Tokyo, Google Flights showed flights for $1832CAD! I followed the Google Flights link to book, which took me to United. Thought it was a bit weird to book everything thru United but hey, United's legit and it allowed me to book. All flights, all seats and all BIZ (Z class) for $1832CAD!! Confirmation via United came through & included the 6 digit code as well as seat assignments (all BIZ class). Fly YVR-SEA(Air Cda,1.5 hr layover)-TOK-SYD-TOK-YVR (all ANA). We are thrilled! Point of this long post, never give up searching, alter a day here or there and don't forget about checking Google Flights. Happy travels to all...and thanks again Chris!

    I think I was one of the lucky ones. Booked within hours of your post on ANA website for $786CAD, class Z, routing YVR-LAX-TYO-SYD, SYD-TYO-YVR.
    Have confirmation e-ticket confirmation/itinerary.
    Fare was $550 with $235.79 in taxes.... until I get on plane I wont believe it.
    Unfortunately, I'm guessing someone is losing their job in Japan.....

    WOW! Thanks Chris!!!

    We were successful booking around 9:30 AM on the 5th with TD for Expedia and received the e-tickets within a few minutes. We immediately went to the ANA site and used our confirmation number to get in and pick our seats and meals. How do I confirm we are solid with these tickets so I can start booking everything else for the trip? Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the update.
    Wishing I was one of the lucky people who got tickets!
    The Greatest deal of all time and I missed it!

    Hope we get more deals from YVR.
    Perhaps you should have a star rating if it is is super Greatest deal ever as warning to "book first and think later".

    I just received a very unexpected phone call from Torrance, CA. At first, thought the agent was going to apologize and nullify the reservation but no....it was to confirm the purchase! $915 YVR-HND-SYD-HND--NRT-SFO-YVR. This is incredibly admirable of ANA. Thank you once again Chris, I was going through a difficult personal situation and am so happy to have lucked out here.

    Hi Serene,

    Glad to hear it! Can you tell us which site you booked on? Was it through the ANA website directly?

    This afternoon, I've been hearing from people who thought they were out of luck in regards to this deal, because their ticket status has been showing as 'Purchased/Not Ticketed', and they never did receive an actual e-ticket.

    However, ANA has apparently been calling people in this situation, and asking for their permission to authorize the ticket purchase, at the mistake price, and they are then receiving the e-ticket about 10 minutes later.

    Just to clarify, I don't think this applies to those who purchased through a booking site that was not quick enough to get a ticket issued. I think it might just be special situations where a person was almost ticketed, but not quite (maybe not enough inventory on one of the legs?).

    I'm not entirely sure who it all applies to, but one thing for sure, ANA is pretty incredible for doing this. Not only are they honoring the mistake for everyone that was ticketed, but they seem to actually be *trying* to honor more bookings that they could easily claim were never ticketed.

    I think ANA should really milk this to show how awesome they are to honor the mistake fare. I was lucky enough to book through ANA so ANA provided me with a ticket. Yay! I still need to take another trip in December to Japan which I still need to book and will book ANA no matter what. They are still one of those airlines that have genuine focus to ensure customer satisfaction. I hope everyone enjoys this privilege and I am sure I will see some of you on board with smiles a beaming.

    Thanks Chris for this, past, and future deals to come.

    Cheers

    Thanks for posting another amazing deal, Chris! My bf and I will be spending a week in Australia followed by another week in Japan in December. Three of the four flights are in business class. Maybe we'll somehow convince the gate agent to upgrade our seats from economy on the SYD-HND leg. Wishful thinking...I know.
    Our CC was finally charged last night, we've received confirmation email from ANA, and we've chosen seats for all four legs. Looks like we're good to go!

    I booked on Aug 5th on the ANA website for $915 and it looks to be all confirmed. YVR-SEA-NRT-HND-SYD on the way there and SYD-HND-YVR on the way back. Booked for Dec 6th to Jan 2nd!

    Thanks Chris! Definitely the best deal I have ever had the chance to capitalize on!
