    Congratulations! I know how we felt when our visas came through....we left 9 days later!

    Lots of people use Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. You should get the additional baggage allowance of 40kg's.

    I was looking at flights the other day and Virginblue had some good one way deals but I am not sure about your route.

    thanks all for your msg's, we have literally just been walking round with plastered smiles on our faces! Django - might just have to crack open a bottle or 2 of Vino tonight..

     

    Our route is to Sydney from London Heathrow, stay in Sydney for between 4 - 5 days for a friends wedding (30th Oct) and then onto Adelaide 1st week in November. Will have a look at Virgin Blue, we flew with Cathay last year and we were blown away by the level of service we received.

     

    Will keep you all posted....TTFN

    Congratulations!!!! Bet its been a long time coming eh?? Lots to do now eh?? Lifes on hold and then fast forward :jiggy:

     

    Hopefully we'll be in the same situation at the beginning of next year. I too am a nurse and got SA SS last month, 176 applied on 17th August so your timeline gives me something to work on.

     

    Good luck and keep us all posted. Also pass on good luck to your wife, bet she cant wait to give her notice in. :P

    thanks guys for all your posts, broke the news to parents and outlaws last night and they were shaking, we guess that it all feels so real now and all the conversations we have had over the last 4 - 5 years about emigrating are flooding back. We feel nervous, excited, happy, sometimes we get the guilty feeling as we are taking Grandchildren away! It's weird because we feel that we can't show too much excitement/emotion in front of people, went to a Barbie [yes weather is pretty damn good for early Sep!!] yesterday in York to say tattie bye to some family....it was so hard :(

     

    Booked our flights with Virgin Atlantic and we arrive in Sydney on 27th Oct, spend 4 nights there and then onto Adelaide on the 31st.

     

    Anyone know anything about Tiger Airways? had a few quotes, Virgin Blue, Jetstar and Tiger appear to be the cheapest...I know it doesn't always pay to go cheap though!

    Avoid Tiger airlines. They are a pain in the ass with luggage and if you go slightly over the bill is massive!! It's worth paying a few extra dollars and coming qantas - at least you'll be ok with them and they feed you in flight!! Tiger air and virgin blue have no inflight facilities, which are valuable when flying with little ones xxx

    thanks guys, just looked at the uplevel luggage and like you say don't want to get stung at the airport with a stupid bill. Going to check Quantas out, didn't think of them!
