    Taken from The Jakarta Post Website, let's see what budget prices are offered. Reckon they wont differ from what is offered now with Qantas.

    SYDNEY, Australia (AFP): Australian Airlines, Qantas' budget Asian offshoot, said Friday it would begin flying from Perth to Bali in December.
    Australian Airlines chief executive Andrea Staines said the carrier would operate two Boeing 767-300 flights a week from Perth to Bali, almost doubling the number of seats offered by the Qantas group on the route over the peak holiday period.
    The tourist-oriented airline currently operates three flights a week to the Indonesian resort island from Sydney and two flights a week from Melbourne.
    Staines said that from February 1, Qantas would scrap its once a week flight from Perth to Bali, making Australian the group's only airline operating on the route.

    I think Australian Airline prices have generally been what you would expect from any full service airlines, so would expect the prices to be on a par with what QF now offers. In any case, I don't think Qantas have really be serious with this route, so I don't think it is a great loss them pulling out.
