  • Does anyone work for qantas/jetstar airlines/airport/service desk? - Perth

    Hi,

    In short:

    Need to buy a bicycle box and qantas/jetstar have a good size ones that i used previously but they only sell to customers who fly with them, the plan is to fly overseas with Emirates who dont supply such boxes.

    Would someone be able to help me get one? They cost like 14$.

    I am in Perth.

    Thanks a lot!

    Sit at the airport and offer the guys in fluro shirts (FIFO workers) a few cans of VB in exchange for said box.

    Apart from that I can't help - good luck!
    Straight roads are for fast bikes - corners are for fast riders!

      Would rather not walk around the airport approaching random people, in case the security gets the wrong idea!

      Another options, if anyone is flying with them i could meet up at the airport before your flight and you simply purchase the box for me, everyone is happy

            Have you tried buying one at the counter? I would have figured that staff wouldn't be too fussed about it.
            One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

              Yes, last time i needed one, they wouldnt sell me one. You would think its not a big deal but unfortunately it is for them.

                  A friends dad works at QANTAS so I'll ask if he can get his hands on one. Only contact I have to him is Facebook and I'm away for the long weekend. How urgently you need it?

                    This is true but standard bicycle boxes generally fit 'normal' bicycles only, my bike is a touring bike with racks, panniers etc hence i need a way bigger qantas box

                      I have flown numerous times interstate with my bike, just get one from local bike shop, not sure if they even charge you or not as they give u a recycled one? they fit most bikes that I know of, however may have to put ur paniers in the hand luggage?

                        I've heard back from him and shouldn't be an issue. Is there only one specific size or something special I need to ask for? I'll pick it up from him next week sometime and let you know when I have it and organise a time to drop it off to you.

                            I'm in Bedford, but will be collecting from Elenbrook, so can drop it off to you no bother.

                            And glad to help mate, that's what this community is all about
