I'm only getting Tues/Wed availaility anyway for any of BNE's exotic destinations late May. Looks like another sale useless for me.

As usual this 'sale' doesn't work for me. At least the computers don't seem to have gone into complete meltdown this time. :D

May next year?

Why not have sales where people can make use of them, like next couple of months, instead of flying aircraft half full and expecting people to pay top dollar for airfares?

I found that if you simply hit refresh it 'tends' to come good.

At least there is a brand new error message:

It is not just Jetstar. Virgin is the same. And so are the new foreign carriers flying Australian domestic routes.

I could use a cheap deal mid-October. I feel like going somewhere but will not be paying the airfares currently advertised. May is 8 months away....

Reeeaalllllly ????? It never ceases to amaze me how much Jetstar doesn't think sales like this will cause the website to crumble. -- although this time, the website does seem to be performing better than previous sales. Maybe it's cause a lot of people are off celebrating the other type of footy, or the short lead time till the sale. Or maybe Jetstar has increased their web capacity for their sales...

Or maybe punters have had a ^^^^ full of Jetrats and have gone to Virgin. :rolleyes:

The only airline that has had sale fares in the next month or two, like this is Air New Zealand, with their Grabaseat sales. Generally if you haven't booked a flight within 2 weeks of the flights, the prices are going to go up, simply because it costs more to fly a fully loaded plane than one that is 50-70% loaded.

Oh, and of course, there are Virgin's Happy Hour deals...

I'll be looking v. closely at any possible availability MEL/HBA in latish May next year.
No availability unfortunately unless you go Wednesday and come back Tuesday. Maybe they clued onto it.

Thanks heaps for the link too smithym. Didn't come through until after you posted. Great to see BNE has such an exciting range of destinations again. :rolleyes:

Cheers,

Thanks, at least I feel better now. :-|

Flew up from MEL this morning and was off line until ¼ hour ago; saw the email 6 mins ago and realised the sale finished at 3pm TODAY!

I would have been :evil: :evil: :evil: if I had missed out on the dates I was after.

... received first mail at 12:07 pm; mrs serfty at 12:13.

Oh, well it looks like we'll need to consider alternatives ...

I can't really see what the ACCC is going to find negative in the sale, but will be nice to see an airline investigated.

They get away with too much...
