Airfare ticket to Adelaide

I needed to go to Adelaide for a funeral. I booked a ticket last minute with Qantas airlines. The ticket was reasonably priced even if I purchased it a day before my flight. The ticket agent offered me the service of fast transfer from Adelaide airport to the city, so I took it. Qantas delivered great service and when I needed to change the ticket date for returning back from Adelaide, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend Qantas airlines for reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to Adelaide.

Visiting Adelaide for a festival

I visited Adelaide last year for a festival. I was invited to perform at Adelaide Guitar Festival, so all my costs were covered by Adelaide city hall. Thanks to this invitation, I flew with Emirate Airlines for free as my ticket was booked for the first class from Dubai to Adelaide. The ticket, I imagine, must have been quite expensive. I did not buy the ticket though, it was pre-arranged for me. The service aboard Emirate Airlines was just great. Adelaide is a fantastic city and in the free time I purchased a boat ticket for a ride in on the waves of the ocean. I would love to attend the Adelaide Guitar Festival next year as well, even if this time I am not invited and I have to pay for my plane ticket to Adelaide myself.
