    Well, looks like Perth is in Jetstar's crosshairs. I am sure this will just be the beginning of us having to put up with Jetstart. I guess flying to Avalon is another point of differentiation.

    Just think that not only do you now have the chance, in Perth, to experience Jetstar's superior service but also think of the good you will be doing cab drivers/companies when travelling to Melbourne by giving them the extra money you saved on the airfare. :)

    Is this going to be Deathstar's longest period of paid captivity for the unfortunate - or is there a longer leg (Kiwi's don't count!) :?:

    Obviously JohnK has experienced superior service on Jetstar.

    Not trying to be funny. Just my usual sarcasm. Will let you know of their "so called" service if you ever catch me on one of their flights.

    Interestingly the JetFlex fare, which I understand is Fully Flexible comes in at $399 one way, which isn't too bad a fare really.

    Proud Jetstar, Australian Airlines, Virgin Blue and Ozjet virgin.

    Although one of these days I may end up on Australian Airlines just for the heck of it on one of these points trips to Singapore.

    If the company was paying for this it would not be so bad. By the way is this full economy SC's on QF or still discount economy?

    I purchased a return airfare SYD-ADL-PER back in November for travel in March for only $570 return which will yield 70 SC's. A little more attractive than a cheaper airfare without any status credits.

    JetFlex is full economy for SC purposes.

    So the JetFlex SC rate is not too bad. Not as good as what you can get with some sales, or on some sectors, but not too shabby nonetheless.

    Its more than I would pay, unless there was some other compelling reason.

    Agreed. I wouldn't ordinarily pay that either, and I'd also need a compelling reason to use it.

    Nevertheless, it is quite a competitive price for a flexible ticket (notwithstanding it goes to Avalon).
