Can't say I fly this close to new years usually. However i'm liking some Cathay flights for $1040 (Early jan- return Australia day) Ex Sydney to HK - 3 nights stay HK to Hnd Tokyo Tokyo to HK on JAL (CX code share) HK to Syd. Looking at 24 days or so. Bit out of the loop for a early Jan departure. However I think thats a pretty good deal.
