Leading Australian agent Phil Hoffmann Travel is already advertising Early Bird deals in South Australia from $919 return to Europe next year – surely the lowest price ever for a premium carrier.
The deal to Pisa in Italy is with Qatar Airways – this premium Qantas partner airline commenced daily flights to Adelaide in May this year. That service has already been reduced to six flights a week – and soon five.
According to Australian Business Traveller, Qatar will suspend flights from Adelaide on Wednesdays and Sundays and from Doha on Tuesdays and Saturdays from October 30, with its reduced schedule remaining in place until at least August 2017. Business class deals on the PHT website include from $6569 with Singapore Airlines, $7059 (Emirates) and $5466, Qatar.
