Question Premium Economy Sydney to Europe - what's the best way to set up sales alerts?


Aug 21, 2019
Hi, we're looking to travel from Sydney to Europe in Aug/Oct 2020. 2 adults, 2 children.

What's the best way to register for premium economy sales alerts?

We're flexible on dates, countries and airlines - my only requirement is to avoid economy getting there!
Would love to try and find a deal around $2000pp return if possible?

Thank you!

The airlines to watch for super cheap premium economy are China Airlines (out of Taipei) and Vietnam Airlines.

Sub $2k fares have historically been very rare - but not non-existent. China Airlines have run one or two promos in the $1500-1800 bracket.

Keep an eye out for cheap fares from Asian ports aswell, sometimes it is cheaper to position to Asia with a Y flight and the pick up a PE or even a J fare for not much more. WY (Oman) often have fares for around $2k from Asia to Europe and are absolutely wonderful to fly with. I think Qatar even had $1800 return in J from Asia to Europe at one stage

Philippine Airlines has a sale on at present. It offers W class to LHR, not anywhere on 'the continent', but is a good value, very safe airline with more modern planes than QF1/QF2 (and in my opinion, far better service on board with FAs who speak excellent English):

A$2309 is its lead in fare in W class SYD - MNL - LHR return. It is a full service airline, not a low cost carrier like JQ or TR.

You may easily be able to travel by rail, in style with a Eurail Pass (once in Paris onwards) and/or point to point ticket, from London to your destination and see some lovely country along the way, as well as experiencing the high speed rail that Australia lacks, plus good but slower other trains. Europe's railways are terrific and a great way to sit back and relax without being crammed into an A320 or B738.
