Vancouver to Sydney, Australia - $775 CAD roundtrip including taxes | Melbourne for $761

Australia

United Airlines is possibly showing flights from Vancouver to Sydney, Australia for $775 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

I have also seen a few flights from Vancouver to Melbourne, Australia (MEL) for $761 CAD roundtrip including taxes, but only in November.

Some dates have 1 stop on the way there, and 2 on the way back. Some have 1 stop each way.

So far I've only seen these on one booking site, (Fareboom) which can sometimes be the sign of a mistake, but there have been some pretty amazing prices to Australia lately, and I can get to the verified price page.

I have seen United Airlines fares on Fareboom before, that were only showing up on Fareboom (some really cheap fares to Japan from Western Canada), and they were able to be booked just fine.

The available dates also coincide with the date ranges Qantas and Air Canada have been offering great prices on lately, which suggests these price drops are intentional.

To Sydney, you would probably still be better off to book the non-stop flights with Air Canada that have been available lately for $935 CAD roundtrip including taxes. Or the 1-stop Qantas flights for a similar price.

The 1-stop flights to Melbourne might be more attractive, since a minimum of 1-stop is always required to get from Vancouver to Melbourne anyways.

But it's hard not to point out what would be the cheapest flights ever from Vancouver to Australia, even if they are on United.
