Not to bloody alarm you or anything but Etihad have announced a massive sale where return flights to New York are yours from $914. I repeat, that’s a flight to New York from Australia for a under a thousand bucks. If you ask me, it’s a sign to get the hell outta the country.

The flights are for travel in between April and June which means you can escape our cruel winters and check out all the summer farshunnnn in New York, like what more do you want? Apart from all the freakin’ food.


Usually the cheapest flights are from Darwin but surprise, surprise ‘cos Perth has stolen the throne with return flights starting at $914. Meanwhile, Darwin’s instead at $1057 return. Of course there will be ad-ons but can you really put a price on legitimate leg room, decent food, and a quality chance at sleep? No, no you cannot. The flight to New York is a bit of a long one as well – it’s one day and four hours from bloody Darwin. But hey, at least there’s a stop over because otherwise your arse would actually become one with the seat.

But anyway, click HERE to give it all a right ol’ suss (AKA play around with the dates for the cheap flights) while I tempt you with New York pics off Insta.
