I can fly from here on the east coast, to BKK return, for the same or less price to fly to Perth. So a 9.5hr flight compared to 4hrs, each way.
I think that is one of the things that give the younger generation the ability to travel so much. We never had low cost airlines, they were all full service and prices set, no discount.
In 1977 when i was in Perth, it was $1,300 to fly to Sydney. Basic wages were $250pw.
