    Jetstar are having a Sale linked to Australia's First innings run score.

    The more runs the Aussies make in the first innings the more seats available. Currently they are 1/91, if they were all out for 110 ( :confused: , 110 StarClass seats will be available for $110 oneway from Oz to anywhere starclass goes. Normal rates apply for the various seating classes on the return.

    Here's a synopsys:

    Hmm thats a tad strange. If the Aussies do well the seats cost more - not an incentive for people to cheer on the aussies really. It does mean more availability but at a higher price :?:

    Agree. You might even say it is unpatriotic. Perhaps they were expecting England to bat first? Or a case where they are trying to limit costs but it has come off wrong?

    You would be silly if you applied via the email link sent exclusively to Jetmail subscribers on Monday 27 November 2006.

    Maybe the Pommie team will be the first 11 to buy tickets and flee the country, not bothering to book a return. ;)

    Currently 141 for 2 ...

    Hmmm ... 155/2 ...

    It's a self insuring formula; the less the greencaps score, the less of these seats they have to sell.

    Surprisingly, it's an inclusive fare, so there's plenty of leeway.

    ... 160/2 ...

    According to your link you cannot buy the ticket until Tuesday 28 November using the link that will be sent to you on Monday 27 November. So if the Aussies make 650 the offer is less attractive. By the way what is the regular airfare to Bangkok, which you will need to pay for the return flight?

    JetSaver BKK-MEL is from:
    $275 fare + $137 of +++ = $412

    StarClass MEL-BKK:
    $835 fare + $163 of +++ = $998

    Jetsaver HNL-SYD is from:
    $374 fare + $153 of +++ = $528

    StarClass SYD-HNL:
    $1,094 fare + $204 of +++ = $1298

    Nope. Only Jet Flex and Star class fares, and then only able to credit to QFF. (Hence my previous comment about OW should be concerned about jetstarisation.)

    I guess JohnK picked up the typo as underlined. I guess that should be Tuesday 28th November, 0900 AEST (1100 Kiwi Time).

    346/3 at stumps on day 1. So there could be a lot of tickets for sale, but maybe not huge bargains.
