Saw this when a colleague checked her e-mail at lunch (~5am Sydney time)...glad I did! I've been meaning to book my flights for the FlyerTalk AGM for a fortnight, but got lazy. Saved $62 by booking today. :)

Yeah, Virgin must be having issues getting their sales fare online. They usually react nearly immediately after QF. JQ also aren't on sale.

I am sure QF will be having a great day bringing in lost of sales...:)

There will be a Jetstar sale awfully soon, 28000 seats for $28 ea. Don't think Tiger are doing anything this week, and I think everyone at Virgin Blue is on holidays, especially since there was no Happy Hour today. :rolleyes:

Just booked my Qantas flights from Sydney to Perth for $410.00 return, huge saving of about $160.00 and I even get a meal.

Still it's a lot of money when you consider that you can fly Los Angeles (LAX) to Manchester NH (MHT) round-trip for half that. It's about the same distance. Airfares are very expensive in Australia (just try getting out of it).

In a previous sale, I got; MEL-PER on TT - $80 return in January (+ I have now paid $25 each way for a bulk head & an exit row, and may even allow up to $20 each way for food/drinks onboard)

Beware when comparing a Qantas price's value, merely by "discount"!

Seems Virgin are now silently matching/beating QANTAS's sale prices.
Smart marketing... Being silent means people can check the Virgin prices against Qantas and find the cheaper and think they are always cheaper.
Will only catch non frequent flyers.

A mate who travelled DJ today ex MEL advised they had all sorts of system problems..this may have caused the delayed response but its nice to see QF lead a sale for a change rather than reluctantly respond and with prices that seem a bit sharper than recent efforts...must have a few bob in the war chest after announcing 10% above last years profit...if things go well
thats pushing 1.5B..not bad for a non bank/miner... Await profit upgrade details from DJ soon

Just having a look at the Qantas website now.
Sydney to Tamworth, return for only $178 and 40sc. Red e-deal, September 11 return 13.
Works out @ $4.45 for 1SC

Is that the cheapest around?
Anyone find cheaper?

Found one
Sydney to Coffs Harbour.
$157 return
3.925 per SC.


Sorry, got the calculations wrong, it's only 20SC RETURN trip. Same with the post above. Opps....
So, it's $7.85 per SC.
My bad. l thought that l was onto a winner and was almost in the process of doing a SC Run.
