There’s no but’s about it – flying to Australia from the USA is a serious journey, but always a rewarding one, even if the other “butt” doesn’t agree. In the aim of helping your butt adjust to almost 20 hours of flight time, premium economy is a huge upgrade, bringing wider and more padded seats with loads more recline and legroom as well as  better food and more bags too.

EVA Air, a five star airline which is always a traveller favourite has an insane sale on right now, which brings premium economy to Australia for $1250 round trip and up, with great prices from West Coast, East Coast and the Midwest. These deals are hot…

Cash prices in economy to Australia can regularly cross the $1000 and up mark, so to get premium for the same price is a real coup! Not only that, you get EVA Air Premium, which is one of the best in the skies, with seats similar or better to domestic first class in the USA. The best prices are offered to Brisbane, which is less than 1.5 hour flight from Sydney, and even closer to the Great Barrier Reef. It’s an amazing city. These hot flights to Brisbane are available from…

  • New York
  • Chicago
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle

These deals may give you enough time to leave the airport in Taiwan to stretch your legs and relax, which is totally suggested. From Chiayi to Taipei, there’s so much to see and do, especially if you love street food. Chiayi was recently featured in the Netflix series aptly titled “Street Food”.

Brisbane sounding amazing right now? These prices can be found for travel from August 2019 thru November 2019, and then again from January 2020 thru March 2020 before fizzling out again in April. It’s hard to beat Australia in fall or spring, since you’ll get perfect weather in either. And don’t forget, whatever we have, they have the opposite: spring is fall, fall is spring.

One of the best things about these deal is that theres hardly any restrictions. You can stay for a long time, or return after just a day or so, if you’re one of those crazy people that flies somewhere just for the miles.

  1. This is a 14 hour flight to Taiwan in Premium Economy, but then is followed by a 9 hour flight in regular economy from TPE to Brisbane (after five hour layover). OTOH, you can fly West Coast to Brisbane nonstop in 14 hours, available for $1,715 PE on Virgin. Better overall value, IMO.

  2. It looks like the 8 hour flight from Taipei to Brisbane and reverse, is booking into regular economy.
