Quick tip: Whenever possible, book directly with the airlines for long-haul flights.
Sometimes, you can request an upgrade to business or first-class upon checking in, and STILL pay less than what everyone else paid just for their coach seat. (Here is a video interview with a JGOOT subscriber who does it all the time.)
* There only appear to be a few seats at this price and availability is spotty. It will take a little digging to find dates other than the dates I found, but at this price, it’s well worth digging for.
Economy fares as low as: $778 round-trip. (Normal price: $2200.00)
Business fares as low as: $4,884 round-trip.

- Fares found are only good until airline sells those seats (which can sometimes be within hours of when they are found). The best way to find the same prices we find is to check your alerts daily – whether planning a trip or not.
- All flight plus lodging package prices are per-person & assume double occupancy. Single travelers can adjust their search once on Kayak and can expect to pay 5% to 30% more for packages. 3 or 4 travelers sharing a room can adjust search accordingly on Kayak and can expect to spend 5% to 40% less per person.
- JGOOT makes no warranties or guarantees about airlines or hotels linked to, and we encourage that you research using outside resources like TripAdvisor.com.
- Any time you cannot find prices similar to trip price above, we advise having a backup plan using frequent flyer points but that is in no way an endorsement for irresponsibly using credit or applying for more credit than you can afford.
