Three years ago I flew British out of Vancouver and paid around $950 round trip and it took about 18 hours. 5 Years ago I flew from JFK to Cairo for $600 - I used credit card miles to and from New York.
My flight to Egypt last fall was around $1350 but I also included a 3 day stop in Cyprus to dive the Zenobia
It;s been awhile since we went but I routinely get flight deal alerts from LAX to Nadi for around $600.
Flight deal can be had if you get creative.
