    Im trying to get a flight to Vancouver in April to see "Vancouver" but everything frm here to there is coming up at a ridiculous cost.
    They are advertising flights if youfly like a week before I want to go at $1700 but to go when I need to go it will cost me $700 more!!!

    Its so frustrating! Can anyone think of a better way for me to get to Vancouver? Even flights to LA/ San Fran are just as expensive if I wanted to bus it up.

    Would it be cheaper to buy one way flights from Vancouver?
    Aussies get screwed on everything. :evil: :evil: :evil:

    Manda, I am finding prices about $2100 for Sydney to Vancouver. Try looking at going to LA (LAX) then from there to Vancouver. I see a direct Qantas flight to LA for 1445, and then flights from LA to Vancouver are only 153 on Alaska. So that would be a total of 1598. I didn't compare the times tho, but I am something could be worked out. It's a start anyway...

    Of course, you're probably seeing AUS dollars and I'm seeing US$ so I'm probably all confused :|
