"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Error: Vancouver to Melbourne, Brisbane, or Sydney, Australia (and New Zealand) - $671 CAD roundtrip | non-stop flights, partial business class

The Great Ocean Road near Melbourne, Australia

Air Canada is showing non-stop flights from Vancouver to Melbourne, Brisbane, or Sydney, Australia for $671 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

And in some cases, on the way there, the flight is in business class (normally around $9,400 roundtrip!)

BUT, these are only showing up on one booking site, Flighthub, which leads me to believe they are the type of error fare that is unlikely to be honored.

If you do attempt to book these, I would take screenshots as you go, and have zero expectations of a ticket being issued.

I will update this post if I hear from anyone who attempts to book it.

Update @ 8:54 AM PST - I have heard from a few people who attempted to book these, and they were unable to. They may be a glitch caused by the recent Air Canada reservation system upgrade.

    Hey Chris! I don't see the flexible dates option in flight hub on my phone?

    Yeah, unfortunately FlightHub's mobile site doesn't offer a way to search with flexible dates.

    Thanks for the fast response Chris! I'm wanting to go to Malaysia and also Sydney from Vancouver.. Thinking of doing it via a stop over to Australia.. What are your thoughts for the best way? Do these Australia flights allow stop overs?

    Hi Sam,

    These flights do have free stopovers available in Los Angles and San Francisco (not sure if you saw the update to the blog post).

    A stopover in Malaysia on your way to Australia won't be possible with this deal, since Vancouver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all have non-stop flights to Sydney - so most airlines will generally be flying through one of these cities to get to Australia.

    In the rare cases where airlines do give a free stopover, it's generally only in cities that are their main hub, or at the very least, it's a city that's common for them to stop in, on your way to your final destination. From Vancouver to Malaysia, they usually fly through Japan, China, Taiwan, or the Philippines.
