15With all flights check out flight time (duration) and length of stopover times.
Royal Brunei only flies into some cities. Melbourne is fine but only 5 days of week. I found STA travel ( great for people who are not students too.) had best prices and there is a special on at moment. They have branches outside Australia but can book from here I think?
Good luck JoyV

16Don't forget #15 that if you book a flight through a travel agent that's not in your own country you are going to pay more (in some cases far more). My suggestion would be that the OP stick to travel agents (on line or otherwise) in his/her own country, as the prices will be far more competitive.

17I agree although it can be cheaper sometimes to buy return tickets in another country if you return there regularly than from home base.
Lots of STA travel world wide. I always find them competitive and also use Webjet's monthly calendar to find best dates on which to travel. Always check with other websites as prices vary considerably from day to day on each website.

18Booking tickets is an art and science :-) Its very hard though to tell someone the best way to go about something, because it always varies! A good start are web search engines like skyscanner. Also having knowledge of airlines, where they go etc and staying on top of news of new routes helps also. Traditionally this is what a travel agent was meant to know, but now its easy for anyone to get this info, plus there seems to be a general dumbing down of what your average travel agent knows.
Back to the OP, Royal Brunei is a good airline. China Southern isn't that bad either. I got premium economy, for less than the cost of economy on other airlines and IMO premium on China southern is better than economy on other airlines, but not as good as premium on other airlines.
Finally I just flew Jetstar international recently to Cambodia. They were certainly, comfort wise as bad/good as every other airline. So maybe if you can find a cheap flight to Singapore, then you can get jetstar to Australia. As per my previous comments, its not easy to tell someone where the cheapest airfares are, we can just give you info to help you find it!

19Glad to hear about the positive experience with Jetstar to Cambodia. I am flying Jetstar to Hawaii in May and was feeling ever so mildly concerned about it. Not because of previous bad experiences I've had (which I haven't - experiences with Jetstar have always been positive) but because of things other people have said. I feel less concerned now.
