Case Number: 01427618171-49/806 AV:0002.0.-Communication issue
I too tried for two hours solid and only got the unable to process response. I have booked many Jetstar specials before and never had this problem, even the Jetstar Starclass sports mad sale. The interesting thing is I have tried ringing them and I have not been able to get through on their reservations number either, still now even 1.45 hr after the sale finished. I find this really wierd, as if they are busy you just get hold, but now only a message saying they are busy or not answering, please try again later. This has been going on for hours. There is something fishy about this sale, they now have up sold out and I had my booking all in place ready to send right on 10.00am and kept trying after.Myrna said:Like everyone who posted, I tried for 2 hours in vain! Like a publicity stunt.
Just curious, did anyone get any success? And, was the $1 before or after taxes and charges?
PS - typed this while futaris posted and answered my questions. Thanks.
That sounds like the real deal Tiger seems to be offering!Standby said:...Stagger prices appropriately from the time the flight enters their system range., train the punter to book early...
Aaah gotta love it. Website can handle 2% of the customers who wanted to visit in the first hour. Hmm. Perhaps they should be rethinking their sales... Or their IT infrastructure!Jetstar Web site casualty of AU$1 fare war

update JetStar's online booking system has melted down for the second time this year after it today released 10,000 one-way seats at AU$1 each.
The problem is a repeat of the meltdown that occurred in February 2007 when JetStar announced 22,000 seats for AU$22 each to some 300,000 e-mail subscribers.
The campaign generated 500,000 hits within the first hour.
Pregellio could not confirm whether JetStar had in fact added capacity to its online booking engine since February but said the maximum capacity it could handle was 10,000 simultaneous connections.
She added, “We’re well equipped to handle that volume for one to two hours.”
