There is a very competitive LATAM sale on at the moment for business class tickets between Sydney and Auckland. For those that don’t know, LATAM fly from Santiago to Sydney via Auckland daily with the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
The oneworld carrier usually has decent fares on the route. Having flown Auckland to Sydney with them in business class on two occasions, I can vouch for the comfort, food and service.
Business Class LATAM Sale
Tickets are on sale until 16 October 2018, and travel must be completed by 30 November 2018. When searching for flights, the cheap fares appear in November only. Return fares from Sydney to Auckland are A$624 as you can see below.
By comparison, the same dates with Qantas come out at A$1,915, Air New Zealand are charging $2,046, and Virgin Australia are asking for A$1,903. This shows just how competitive the LATAM sale fare really is.
LATAM Business Class
As I mentioned at the top of this post, I have flown the Auckland to Sydney trip twice. If I was down there I would jump all over this LATAM sale because I think they have a great product.
Seats are arranged in pairs and are lie flat, plus the inflight entertainment has decent new release movies. Out of Auckland, you are served breakfast.
Once seated, you can ask for any drink you like for the pre-departure drinks. A highlight for me is the Mikelsen Gourmet spreads they give out to put on your croissants or bread. Seriously delicious!
Another benefit of the LATAM sale is for frequent flyers holding oneworld alliance cards. Qantas frequent flyers in Australia and New Zealand will earn points as will any other card in the alliance.
While the sale fare is only available for a short travel period, at those prices I would seriously consider a cheeky weekend away. LATAM are worth it on their own.
What do you think of this sale fare? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
