    Can someone else please try this to prove i am not going insane?

    1. Go to the QF Route Map, Domestic
    Flight Info - Route Maps - Australia
    2. Click Perth, then Kununurra. Price should come up as $265
    3. Click Close, then Perth, then Cairns. Price should come up as $265
    4. Click Close, then Perth, then Kalgoorlie. Price should come up as $265

    Click on the International tab, then click Vancouver then Sydney. Price should come up as $265! Click London, then Hong Kong.. guess the price? 265 again! :confused:

    No prices come up at all for me; just the text "Loading Prices" for 1/2 a second, then that changes to a link: > View our Latest Specials which sends you to the Qantas Home page when clicked ... :confused:

    Maybe their IT have implemented a temporary solution? :idea:

    Maybe its IE7?

    I notice that no prices come up for Codeshare routes, only QF direct ones..

    I'm using IE6 in the AKL Dom QP ;)

    Now it's different at $270; maybe they were updating prices. However, I observe the behaviour you mentioned; I can see that $270 showing up for PER-CNS, PER-BNE & PER-NRT!

    :( Can't book at those prices though!

    Bit wierd. Domestically it seems to be ok for me. On international it seems to give me the price of some random domestic sector. If I select PERHKG and then the price I discover it is $275. Click on the $275 link and I discover it is PERSYD that it has priced.

    (using i.e6 and Flash 9)

    Something is really stuffed.

    Here is my example:

    Brisbane to Cairns. From $1197 return (Great deal that!)

    Clicking on it for further information gives me the following URL:
    http://www.qantas.com.au/regions/dyn/au/globaldeals/PER?dest=SIN&cama=rmPERSIN

    Which is specials from Perth to Singapore (funnily enough from $1197 return).

    To me it looks like it is caching the last legitimate request and presenting it to the next user (ie, the person before me checked PER-SIN. ).
