I would not bank on an 'early' February DSC offer - QF has just (last Friday) closed a 'Global Red e-Deal' sale, which saw Y SYD-LAX / SFO fares offered at AUD $979 rtn and SYD-DFW/JFK at AUD $1189 rtn. Over the weekend, these e-deal fares increased significantly. LAX now AUD $1314, SFO now AUD $1494, DFW now AUD $1674 and JFK an astronomical AUD $1862.A 'later' DSC' offer might see the above fares discounted slightly with the additional pull of the DSC to stimulate seat sales.Bear in mind that whilst the premium cabin searchers are ardent DSC watchers, it is the Y cabin jumpers that tend to be all over DSC offers to obtain additional value - with the potential to push their status levels up a notch, even if the sale prices are either non-existent or not that great. QF seems to have more flexibility on the ability to throw in a random J fare sale or a companion offer.
Given the generally deteriorating Aussie dollar, it would be fair to suggest that QF may be looking for some further stabilisation over the next month or two on both the dollar exchange rate and the cost of oil. And the Global Sale has been replaced by a less generous 'Continent' based sale ie: Europe sale, US sale etc.I would suggest that any such DSC offer might be no earlier than the end of February / mid March, but hey .. this is all speculation on everyone's behalf.
