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. ).

That PERSIN person may have been me!!! There is certainly something wrong in the way it is processing things

This is what happens on my laptop with IE7 and Flash 9....
