Hey guys - I admit I don't fully understand how the price changing works with airlines over here - I figured it would be more expensive as more seats get sold but maybe i'm wrong?

Anyway so I was going to book a BNE to CNS flight for my girlfriend and it was $220 for a Saver in the week (Save Lite sold out). Yesterday when I checked - the same flight directly on Virgin site, and on Webjet etc. was now $165. Awesome - but I had to confirm something before booking so I waited. Later that evening, the same flight was $195. Today I got the confirmation that we can travel - and sods law - looked now and it's $220 like it originally was.

I know it's not a great sum, but can anyone shed any light? I could understand price going up, if it wasn't for the fact that a few days ago it was at the higher $220 mark, then dropped, then went back up, twice!

:shock:

Airline sets base price - $220
Qantas introduce a Cairns sale Thursday - DJ match with their sale with a lead in price of $165
Sale sells a few seats so next sale bucket is $195
Sale ends last night, back to non sale base.

In my experience the discount codes work on most sale airfares.
