Planning to fly SYD-SIN-SYD in economy in April 05, when should I expect to start seeing the $800-1000 return airfares? I was hoping to book in advance, but short of $1050 with Gulf Air, all the prices are $5000+.

Not keen on waiting until 4-6weeks before, should I just go with the Gulf Air one now? (departing first day of school holidays and returning last)

Expect the specials to come in around Xmas/new Year and then again after chinese new year. I would not rush into the Gulf Air Option (flights arriving at 4AM into SiN are not my preferred option), it is probably worth a trip to a freindly agent to let them know what you need, they can look out for the specials and get the bookings in early when they are released.

All discount fares SYD-SIN seem only to be loaded until 31st March. I woould expect these to be loaded within the next six weeks.

(I did a trial QF booking with variable dates and up to 31st March the fares are just shy of $1100.)

FWIW, you can do a LONE4 in April for approx. $4500!

Thanks. I noticed the QF Specials only run until 31st March, so I was thinking the April sales won't be too far away. I'd be happy to pay $1100 on QF/BA because the schedules are good (would save me having to spend an extra night in SIN after coming in from HKT in the morning).

I noticed at the moment Royal Brunei have a $765 return fare, so it'd be nice for that to pop up at the time I need. I guess I'll just have to wait.

The only reason the Gulf appealed was because I managed to get the cheaper fares on the first and last day of the school holidays, which I've never managed to find before!
