not really.I think the price of airfares to USA is in direct proportion to the amount of money you have to pay to buy a US Dollar.
I was being facetious, but appreciate your intrepid reply.Many holidays in USA are actually cheaper in AUD$ than they were when AUD$ was stronger, in other words, places that get lots of Australians, adjust their prices to suit the exchange rate.
what freefall. The AUD$ is fairly stable against the USD$.I was being facetious, but appreciate your intrepid reply.
I can't agree with the above quote though. We have been spending 3-4 weeks all across the States every year since 2008 and I am yet to see a US itinerary that aligns itself to our fluctuating exchange rate.
The Australian Government is rubbing its hands together in glee with the free-fall of the AUD. If they had their way, it would be low 60's. And at that point - a voluntary holiday in the States becomes cost-prohibitive. Unless they coax us with a cheap airfare of course.............
Any chance you'll share where this is advertised?what freefall. The AUD$ is fairly stable against the USD$.
January is Australians month at many ski resorts in USA & many adjust their pricing to suit. They don't want the resort to not fill up with Australians, as from around 2 or 3 January, Americans go back to work, college, school & if it wasn't for Australians/Kiwis there would be very few people at some ski resorts in January, except on weekends.
BTW-have been spending 3 to 4 weeks every year in North American since 1985.

if you think the AUD$ vs USD$ is heading south, simply pay for everything now & buy some USD$Are you suggesting the AUD hasn't tracked southbound for the lowest point in ages over the last few years? It may hold steady at 70 today, but that's not how I would describe it's tangent over the last 12 months.
You also omitted the word ski resort - not my area of expertise, so we'll have to agree to disagree. Our next trip is January 2020. I checked every day for January 2019 to gauge the prices. January fares to the States seem to be exempt from many of these offers, but I await the next Virgin sale with anticipation. I sure hope that you are right and the fares are reasonable and the dollar holds steady. I've felt the sting of 45c in the dollar before. It's not a good feeling.
am on too many airline, travel agent & wholesaler email lists. It's obviously the same fare, but some are discounting it more than others. Some of them, I'd never book through. List Best jet, they might have an Australian phone number, address & ABN/ACN but if you phone them, you generally get answered overseas. I want to only deal with someone local, who's easy to get hold of on the phone, if I need to.Well maybe not everywhere - quick search right now shows Air NZ web site with this - Cheap Flights North America | Air New Zealand - Australia
