While this segment may be operated by an A330, I suspect the passengers sitting there would mostly be people on the international segment as well. I don't think you can buy starclass if you are flying purely domestic (which is quite a separate thing to whether you can end up sitting there)d15.in.oz said:There are four types of Jetstar domestic flights (as far as I am aware) -
In regards to the final flight type (JQi, international flight/domestic segment MEL-SYD) - as it is operated by an A330, Star Class is present, and people sit in there. I am unable to answer if upgrades are available at check-in... However, I would warn that this segment is a “pay on board” snack service for economy passengers. On international flights, when JQi economy passengers get this service, Star Class passengers get a “take your pick” from the snack basket service.
- JQ domestic (operated by the Australian A320 Jetstar fleet)
- JQa CNS-DRW (operated by JetstarAsia A320s)
- Domestic codeshare services (operated by QF, marketed by JQ)
- JQi domestic legs of international flights (operated by A330s)
So, if upgrades are available, and the segment is only a “take your pick” from the snack basket service - I personally do not think you would be getting very good value for money! (As for status credits, etc... your call on upgrade value MEL-SYD.)
No, I agree, you can't buy a ticket for it… However, I don't know about upgrading.oz_mark said:I don't think you can buy starclass if you are flying purely domestic...
