    Does anyone know where i can search for discount business tickets (I class)?

    When i look for tickets on the qantas website, it does not tell you what class (J or I) until you pay.

    thanks

    The fare will give you a guide. And, for Domestic bookings it's generally D class. I believe I is used for connecting flights on some international itineries.

    Do a 'dummy booking' select a date well in advance. Fridays are good as there are alway popular flights that almost never have any discounted Business Class availability. I class (or D Class) will be the lessor of two values that may appear.

    E.g. Sydney to Melbourne - Fri 23 Feb 07 shows two prices for J; $433 and $592.

    The $433 is showing where it is available. The $592 appears when only full J is available.

    i.e.
    • the $433 3:30PM flight is showing J9 D9 I3 U3
    • the $433 4:00PM flight is showing J9 D9 I0 U0 &
    • the $592 4:40PM flight is showing J9 D0 I0 U0

    I class is not sold for domestic-only travel
     
  4. I note that on qantas.co.uk, one can book both "business saver" and "first saver" fares from LHR - SYD, which I can't find on the .com.au site.

    £1400 saving on full-fare J, and £2300 in F.

    What the... ?!

    Only catch is total inflexibility, and minimum stay of "no sooner than the first Sunday after departure".

    Still count as J and F for points/SC earn.

    No such luck on the trans-Pacific routes, surprise, surprise!
