  • Whattha QANTAS? Doing a PER-DRW-BNE-DRW-PER that costs more than a return to UK? and that's with saving $400 doing a redeye DRW to BNE.

    • Yeah, been looking at a PER-DRW return as well and it's becoming somewhat cost prohibitive. At this rate, may as well buy my own plane.

        Both routes now have heavy fifo and seem like the average flight cost has gone up +50% in the last couple of years.

        So I'm always getting weekend flights and redeyes not only to get a lower price but to avoid packed planes. The last Fri arvo return a bunch of them had been to the Tap plus a few were clearly zipped of their scones. Stewards given a hard time.

        A little risky as surely a random test could occur after landing. Not sure what the protocol is.

            • Not just that, winter is peak tourist season. And the pricing reflects that throughout the year.

              I've once been stuck in Darwin when my flights were changed and I wasn't notified, leaving stranded in the top end for an extra night.

                Giving flight staff a hard time is federal jurisdiction and has lasting ramifications.

                Most brain dead morons think it is like a bus or train.

                • Useless asshats we sub our IT stuff out to. Ongoing issue for 6 months. After doing nothing for 6 months, the issue is apparently outside of their understanding so it's over to me to solve/sort out. Hot tip: as useless as they are, if it's over their head it's definitely over mine... somehow, for some reason, we keep employing them.

                    Its probably not over their head if they fix it then there out of work....

                    I fixed Mandurah Yamaha server their local IT contractor wanted to charge them to replace the whole server and migration.....I had a look and it was $15 temp sensor, the hardest part was getting parts/program from fujitsu.

                    Would you rather make $100 or 6k for a day.

                    • ^ nah, wouldn't be something they'd make money from. Just something that would make everyone's life for the next few years a little bit easier instead of having to continually work around this issue. Had a directive from the Office Manager yesterday to sort it out myself - if there's no solution to the problem, instead of looking at alternates we'll continue to push shit up hill for the next few years.

                        • Good luck with that one and I hope it is not Air Mauritius. My daughter flew via them last month. Got to airport and cancelled flight. Waited for a couple of hours and sent home being told they would ring them when a flight would be open. They were at the airport for over 2 days and then saw their flight open. They checked in and just before they were ready to board, they got a phonecall saying the flight was on. If they were home, it was an hour drive, plus the baggage checkin had been closed well before they got the call. So they missed 2 nights in Mauritius and had to pay for it.
                          Sure enough, leaving Mauritius and flight to Madagascar was cancelled for a day.
                          Enjoy your holiday when you get there
