I am not scared to post this and ruin the deal beause my blog is quite small thus far with around 200 visitors a day (growing daily! ). There is a hidden delta trip that if you use australia as your stopover on the way to australia then you only for for the price to asia . This works to a few airports i have verified it works from lax-syd-perth-hkt-icn-lax and so i suggest you try it too if you wanna go to australia on the cheap . Please do not mention this deal to any agent but it should simply work if you do it online .
