Can You Book QF107/108?

Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:19 am

I was on Qantas' website earlier and was looking up flying just LAX-JFK-LAX, not serious just looking and JFK did not come up as an option. Do you have to originate on one end, eg SYD-LAX-JFK, or JFK-LAX-SYD?

Yeah you can't fly that leg unless you are connecting to an international flight within 48 hrs time I believe.

Quoting MHTripple7 (Reply 1):

It's only available for sale to passengers who fly into/out of LAX on QF and wish to stop off before flying on to JFK or v.v. As far as I'm aware there's no time limit (e.g. 48 hours)

It can't be booked as a purely domestic LAX-JFK-LAX (or some combination of domestic one-way segments), because Qantas, as a foreign carrier, does not have the legal authority to sell/operate purely domestic flights within the U.S. (i.e., cabotage is prohibited).

Even with a connection outside the U.S. it's not permitted. For example, AC can't sell LGA-YYZ-LAX unless the passenger purchases two totally separate tickets in two transactions. Similarly, UA can't sell a connection YVR-ORD-YYZ, and JAL can't sell LAX-NRT-GUM.
