    I think Mal would be interested in this deal.

    Of course I'm interested. Who wouldn't want to support a fantastic airline like Ozjet?

    Unfortunately though I won't be booking any of these fares. I don't tend to fly Syd-Mel very often... and when I do it's for special things like trying out Ozjet or getting some extra SC's out of a Qantas flight.

    There was another article in the Australian the other day (see http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,17763743%255E23349,00.html), which discusses ozJet and there attempts at getting passengers. Some interesting bits:

    1) February is the time when business travellers start flying again, so this could be a make or break time
    2) A fourth aircraft due later this month, with a fifth in Feb.

    Any mention of a frequent flyer program :?:

    They really do need a ffp because everyone else has one. Whether it is business or leisure you need some incentive for people to fly with you frequently.

    I think they first need to demonstrate that the airline has a future and expand the route network before they introduce a FF scheme. Assuming that they stay around and they develop a decent network, then yes, a FF scheme would be something I think they should look at, but at the moment suspect they have bigger issues.

    I would have thought delivery of 4th and 5th aircraft in Feb would suggest that they think they have a future.

    I know it is not easy to setup a ffp but even mentioning somewhere that "we are looking at an exciting loyalty program" may open a few more eyes up.

    Two-for-one deal is OK but I feel they need a little more.

    OT but I would never have considered flying Virgin regardless of the cheap airfares. But now they have a ffp program I will seriously consider flying with them knowing that I may be rewarded, albeit a small reward, for flying with them.

    What they need is a schedule that suits their target client base. This will be addressed to some extent with extra aircraft.

    Given their silence on the FFP issue, I would suggest we won't be seeing one anytime soon.

    Remember where their aircraft are coming from. Feb is not really a busy period for European operators. Might as well send a few aircraft down to Oz rather than have them then sit around Europe being somewhat idle.
