Sydney: €566 / £524 Star Alliance Flights From London (incl. Luggage)

Sydney Opera House

Star Alliance airlines ANA, Lufthansa, and Austrian Airlines are currently selling discounted flights from London to Sydney. You can basically fly for only £524 (~€616) (with luggage!) deep into 2021. While this is quite a good price, it comes with a catch. The Australian government already announced that it probably won’t open for tourism until late 2021.

Flights to Sydney, mainly flying with ANA.

The long-haul flights are usually operated by ANA, first flying to Tokyo, before continuing to Sydney. Lufthansa or Austrian will fly between London and Frankfurt, Munich, or Vienna.

Warning

We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.

Search & Book

The flights to Sydney require a hefty minimum stay length of ten days. That, however, is the only restriction stated. Google Flights accurately displays the flights to Sydney, so you can check the availability there. You should book directly on Lufthansa’s website.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Miles

The tickets are issued in booking class L, meaning that you should roughly get:

  • 11,084 Award Miles + 2,218 PQP on United MileagePlus
