@blueandgoldfan are you flying out from Texas? I'm doing Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney and I'm flying out from LHR via IAH but my friend in Katy can't find a reasonable flight to join me.... It sucks as my flight from London is $850 or so return and she can't get on the same plane but start / end in Houston for under $3k!

Has she checked on Expedia? IAH is my first connection through, and wasn’t terribly expensive through them.

There are some reasonable flights out there, just keep searching Orbitz, Priceline, etc. By accident I discovered that Qantas has like a payment plan option where you get charged per month. I had never seen this before, so I dont know how common a practice this is. I went ahead and did the payment plan. Itll cost me about $150 more in the long run, but just for me it was better than dropping $1500-$1700 right now. Good luck.

Thanks, I've checked on her behalf, IAH is *my* first connection and she can't get a seat on the same planes as me for the IAH - sydney part for less than 3x what I've paid to fly from London -> IAH ->Sydney!

I'm on the 8:25pm out of IAH on the 9th Nov if anyone else is doing a mini tour 😄

See that's what annoys me so much. I'm flying *farther* yet paying less! Makes no sense! I know there are fees and taxes depending on final destination, but half as much to fly for twice as long? And I get a day stopover in Houston. Do they just make prices up? 😞
