    I know there is some availability from LAX to BNE/SYD in business class for 150K. Can you add any other inter AU flights like SYD to BNE or Melbourne?

    Thanks
    Robert

    Yes, since one of them can be your stopover while the other is your destination

    Yes, and VA flights are all bookable/searchable online as well.

    That's not 100% true. The TPAC flights are, as are lots of intra-Australian flights. However, trans-Tasman flights cannot be searched or booked on DL.dumb. I think there are some minor Australian destinations that are also unbookable online.

    Definitely. I have a connection to HBA booked on my DL VA award. Found seats online on delta.

    If I use one as my stopover does that create an open jaw on the return, or is that allowed?

    Thanks

    I never heard of HBA (Hobart) is there something interesting to see there?

    You are allowed both a stopover and an open jaw on DL awards. You could, for example, fly LAX-SYD/BNE(stopover)-MEL, then drive the Great Ocean Road and further along the coast to ADL and return ADL-SYD/MEL/BNE-LAX. You could not stop for more than 24 hours in SYD/MEL/BNE on the return if you stopped for more than 24 hours on the outbound.

    There are lots of great things to see in Tassie.

    If you are a golfer, this will be a memorable stop: http://www.barnbougledunes.com/ (though flying into Launceston or Devenport will be easier than HBA)

    This time, we're going to Saffire (fly to HBA, then drive a bit). http://www.saffire-freycinet.com.au/
