I get email newsletters from a couple of airlines so when I read one yesterday for $18 fares I immediately got online and started booking an $18 flight to Melbourne with Jetstar. I think everyone else was doing it too, so it took a lot longer than it should have. I think they need to do something to get around the overload problem.
Apparently there was a meltdown when they advertised $22 flights a month ago. It obviously hasn’t been fixed yet.
Despite that, I managed to contact my friend in Melbourne, make sure it was okay to lob on their doorstep in August (when the $18 fares are), and then book the tickets. By the time I paid for 2 return tickets, taxes, credit card booking fee and I even got insurance it came to just under $100 but that’s still really cheap.
I haven’t told JJ yet because I don’t want four months of when are we going on a plane?
