    The one way $49 fares will be only be available through Jetstar's website between 6pm and midnight today, until sold out. The airline has not disclosed how many seats are available.

    The offer is only for travel between November 15 and December 15 this year.

    I wonder what happened to the 'unsustainable' view they had when Tiger had $59 fares. Perhaps more interesting though, is that they have added a second flight that actually runs MEL-PER, rather than out of AVV.

    yes, and no co-incidence that the MEL - PER flight departs 30 minutes after the last QF flight for the day.

    Also, I wonder whether this will get Barnaby Joyce all excited about predatory pricing now, in light of the new amendments to the trade practices act ?

    Well I have flown BNE-DRW on Jetstar... I actually enjoyed (based on the cheapness and alternatives) the flight, believe it or not! :D

    Actually, the sale was interesting. They've made sure to specify clearly what the sale is offering (eg not available on Fri/Sun). Methinks they're a touch scared of the ACCC report that happened after their Footy sale!

    A few people in the office have booked $49 flights - will be interesting to hear what they think of JQ on the redeye.

    I find it funny how in the press release they put a positive spin on operating from two airports (which I agree with - the additional PER-MEL service is an improvement on PER-AVV only), and then later go on to say that they're going to drop PER-MEL in 2008.
