So it's basically 2 hours long, and in the evening rather than midday. I imagine it will help - especially a lot of leisure travellers - not a massive announcement I was hoping for though
"We're changing Happy Hour to 4-6pm AEST Monday to Friday. It's now twice as long, double the happy!
For today only, we're giving you a sneak peak of the fares that will be available between 4-6pm AEST.
To book, visit virginblue.com.au during our new 2-hour Happy Hour and double your happiness today."
So its moved from a time when many are at work and unable to access the site to a time when many are commuting home and unable to access the site....or am I a cynic?
Another "non-event" as per most announcements from DJ lately...but I guess it's a change...
The old time-slot was alot better, as 4-6pm is probably the worst time, especially on a Friday as people have after work drinks, functions, events and the like along with leaving work early.
The last thing I want to do on a Friday is jump on the PC at home! It's about opening a bottle of wine and relaxing!
Not sure why the need to copy Jetstar though.... But again the past few weeks I have found the Jetstar Friday Fare Frenzy to never actually start on time!!
I wonder what the sale fares tonight will be though
Plus international is included which is good!
Wish they'd put announcements up for these things though; logged on today, didn't see the banner and then see the little ad on the bottom left has a new time. Better for them to put an announcement in the current day's banner saying "from next week" or similar, so people know when they need to check, not get caught by surprise. Not the first time though...
When it's lunchtime people whinge that they are on lunch and not near a computer. When it's 4pm-6pm, people whinge that they are traveling home from work and can't check the website.
So please let me (And DJ) know ... What time is suitable for everyone? 1am in the morning? (You're not at work, you're not busy commuting to work, oops you're sleeping!), or is 6am more suitable (You're awake, not at work, not yet time for the morning shower - or does the morning jog get in the way?), or is 6pm better (oops, no watching news or out with the personal trainer/at the pub/eating dinner).
No I don't like the change, but tbh everyone is never going to be happy regardless of what time it is (Have any of the East Coasters even thought about time zone differences with NT/SA/WA?).
The new time works for me
I suspect there are a few here who will never be happy what ever time DJ picks (and who would never fly with them anyway).
