    Domestic Fares Update 19 April 2013


    Qantas has introduced a new 15 day advance purchase fare in V class (VFLEXAP) on the following return markets effective for sale until 17 May 2013.


    Sydney to Melbourne
    Sydney to Brisbane and
    Melbourne to Brisbane


    The VFLEXAP fare is only available as a retail published fare and no changes will be made to existing private fares. Flight & time of day restrictions apply.


    The VFLEXAP fare may be changed as per flexi saver fare conditions. Where a change is made within 15 days of departure:
    If V class is available, the VFLEXAP fare may trade up to the VFLEX fare
    If V class is not available, the VLFEXAP fare may trade up to the next available fare

    Is there any specific way to bookit it?

    Also, how competitive is it when compared to red e-deal pricing?

    I just did some random date searches within 15 days and cheapest I got was $289 for SYD-MEL Flexi Saver.
    Greater than 15 days cheapest I got was $259.

    I don't get it?

    Is it basically a Flexi Saver fare type which should be cheaper than current Flexi Savers, provided you purchase it in advance of 15 days?

    So basically when you search for your flight on Qantas, if you select a date greater than 15 days out, you'll see pretty good fares for Flexi Saver, whereas within 15 days (or where V class is sold out), you'll definitely see more expensive ones?

    I probably see this more advantageous for agents or corporate accounts or the like, particularly those that can actually see and target the fare type (although if Advance Purchase is introduced as a fare type, they will probably have to put the rules in there about definite substantial charges required if changed within 15 days of departure).
