    Looks like the finals are perfectly set up for QF and DJ, at least as far as the SYD-MEL legs go.

    Heaps of Swans supporters flying down to Melbourne on the same weekend as a few Storm supporters will be flying to Sydney.

    This could not have been orchestrated better if the airlines had tried, a Melbourne team playing a GF in Sydney on the same weekend as a Sydney team is playing a GF in Melbourne.

    Means almost no chance of cheap back-loading fares though. :mad: (Although some might be available on MEL-PER and return).

    I'll be on QF566 on Thurs 28th, and when I checked online this morning it is totally full, even J (which was selling at $1,500 per seat one way when I last looked). :shock:

    Anyone wanna buy a fully flexible Y seat? :mrgreen:

    I booked early last week to fly to Perth this week, and the latest flight I could get back to Mel (even flying J) was tomorrow night (unless, of course, I wanted to fly red eye, which I didn't)
  4. I think that there will be more Swans fans flying SYD-MEL-SYD than there will be Storm fans flying MEL-SYD-MEL. Probably plenty of Broncos fans flying BNE-SYD-BNE. On that weekend last year I flew MEL-BNE-PPP. Very quiet indeed, except for the Long Term Carpark at MEL which was chockers. Got Long Term rates in the undercover Short Term carpark.:D

    it's also times like this that WPs using their seating g'tees also causes grief. I used the g'tee this time last year for a seat and it was honoured, although extra planes were then put on and my J waitlist came through, so didn't need the g'tee in the end.

    In every cloud there's a silver lining.

    I am in Perth and have just arranged for one of my mates (based in Melbourne) to come back for the weekend.[​IMG]

    Whilst the flights are at somewhat uncivilised times - it won't be too often that you can fly Melbourne - Perth return for $390 (plus taxes).

    I would have thought that the $390 would include taxes!
