Best Route São Paulo- Sydney

Mon Jan 17, 2005 10:45 pm

Guys,

A friend of mine is travelling to Sydney in April and we are trying to find out the fastest (and if possible, the cheapest too  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) connection.

I was trying something via SCL, but when I try at LAN website, it doesn't show me any possibility.

Do you, guys, have any suggestion?

Hugs,

On LAN is possible, friends of mine do it in just some days from now.

Going through Buenos Aires on either Aerolineas Argentinas or Qantas should be good options too. Going all the way through Los Angeles is tedious, tiring (US immigration too) and more expensive. Check out also the options through Europe, for instance on British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, Air France with their partner systems. The trip will be much longer but check out the prices! There are good deals from/to Europe.

Why dont you go SA GRU-JNB-SYD or you could also take AR GRU-EZE-AKL-SYD. But remember flying LA or AR will involve 2 stops, so SA may be faster.

The LAN SCL-AKL flight isn't daily, so you need to pick the best day to fly on bearing this in mind.

CptGirmayTesfa: QF stopped flying to EZE a long time ago.

Times:

LA: 22h15mn
SA: 31h25min
AR: 21h:57min

AR is the fastest.

Hey guys!!!

Thanks a lot for the help by now.

I was looking what you said about time. I think a trip via Europe or South Africa would be better, because it would be possible to make a stop over, relax two or three days and visit some places.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

cheapest and quickest are unlikely to be the same on such an itinerary.

you'll find best prices with a local agency, but i found a fare of USD 1700 on united, although the routing is hopelessly circuitous.

I had found something with LAN with a fare of USD1500. At least it makes more sense.

However, a friend told me that perhaps it would be cheaper by two different tickets. Brazil - Europe and then Europe - Australia.

What do you think?

...AR is the fastest.


Maybe, but for 15 minutes, yoiu can't compare one of the best service and PTVs... Try LAN, US1500 is something that we here are not able to get!

Regards and enjoy LAN...

It simply does not make sense to go all the way to Europe in order to reach SYD. There are excellent flights from GRU to SYD via EZE or SCL, with excellent fares. You will never get a cheaper fare via Europe.

I flew GRU-SYD with AR in 1996 (at the time they operated the 747 on this route and had a technical fuel stop-over in Rio Gallegos) and found the flight very good. I also got a free 2-night stop-over in EZE. At the time I think I paid about USD1,900, but my final destination was Brisbane and not Sydney and I also departed from BSB and not GRU. So the fare was excellent.

I would recommend AR or LA - and you may also break your trip in EZE or SCL, which are very interesting places to stay for a while.

GRU-JNB-SYD it's the fastest way of getting here, just change planes in Johannesburg and get on QF 64, takes about 11hr from JNB-SYD and about 9 from GRU-JNB, much faster than the Lan option.

flight would be with SA and QF

SA is advertising Australia in Brazil via JNB, with possibly the cheapest fare. A stop-over in JNB would not be bad at all.

Does SA operate JNB-SYD or they operate the route code-share with QF? If you split your ticket GRU-JNB with SA and JNB-SYD with QF, I'm sure it will be more expensive.

GRU-FCO with AZ. Stop 2-3 days in Rome and then from FCO to SYD with these alternatives :
- CX/QF via HKG (QF has a c/s agreement with CX for FCO-HKG sector)
- MH via KUL
- SQ via SIN
- TG via BKK
or also if you prefer :
- KE via SEL
- JL via NRT
- EK via DXB
.....

Bye
