Hi all, just finished reading the book about a month ago and decided to check out the online forums. I am quitting my white collar job and moving to Australia in Jan. I've been scouring all the travel sites for the best airfare rates and came across one catered to students and under 26 year olds. The website is http://www.statravel.com/cps/rde/xch...s.xsl/home.htm
and saved me a good chunk of change on my LAX to SYD flight. To give exact numbers, the cheapest flight on Kayak.com for my travel date was $952 USD for a one-way ticket on Air Pacific Ltd Airlines (18 hr 55 min flight time). The ticket I found on STA was only $670 USD ($282 USD less) and was operated by Virgin Blue (a more reputable airline IMO) and had a total flight time of 15 hrs even. Couple that with a one-way ticket from PBI to LAX for $160 USD from Delta, purchased on Kayak.com, and I have a total flight cost of $830 USD. This site took some digging and out-of-the-box Googling to find so I'd thought I'd go ahead and share it with you all.
