    This ones going to be a fight to get hold of the freebie seats. Can imagine their site is going to get nailed when they release them. Thanks eggles.

    Trying to figure out what time that is. Would that be 2am Sydney time?
  • wheadle2009/02/08 23:24:04
    I can't see a time at all on the site
  • queenshrew2009/02/09 10:26:05
    Monday is 9th.

    Is it Monday the 9th or Tuesday the 10th when the sale starts? Getting confused :confused: but hoping to be on time so I might be able to see if there's any good deals :D
  • queenshrew2009/02/09 10:29:00

    Isn't departure only from Kuala Lumpur? Meaning we have to be in KL to benefit? o_O
  • blossom2009/02/09 20:23:55
    It's "Depart to/from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (LCCT terminal)"

    Both ways ;)

    yeah but still, that means, it departs from kuala lumpur airport... OR from destinations TO kuala lumpur airport, so either way, we can't get any benefits because the locations to depart to kuala lumpur airport are all asian destinations. :(
  • joelwilliam2009/02/10 03:31:15
    you can book Gold Coast to KL for $0 + tax
  • joelwilliam2009/02/10 03:34:19

    Anyone had any luck? Tried a few dates with no luck any hints?
  • voteoften2009/02/10 08:10:21
    There is at least one free seat from KL to Perth in December. That is not a route that they are promoting with this "sale"
  • Keeys2009/02/10 08:22:16
    I can't find Gold Coast to KL I can find KL to Gold Coast though :(
  • eggles2009/02/10 09:14:41
    plenty of seats still available according to the site

    Thanks for the timing but look like they decided against using gmt +8 :D
  • queenshrew2009/02/10 09:18:29
    I guess if you want to go elsewhere other than KL, you can take a detour through KL.

    From KL, there's HEAPS of destinations..some have the $0 fare too.

    Not sure if they do match up for a smooth journey, as I didn't check myself.. but it's a thought :D
  • sukiya2009/02/10 09:46:07
    Yeah the only free seat left for departure is from gold coast to KL on 14th January.
    Nothing else is available in that date.
    All free return seats are gone though.
    But free departure + paying for return only amounts to $500!!! And from KL to almost all Asia destinations for about $50-60!!! You can probably visit over 10 countries over 15 days for less than a $1000.

    Sigh, too bad I can't book it, its way too far ahead and no idea what work commitment lays ahead especially in this recession where people are reluctant to take time off from work for ANY reason.
  • Keeys2009/02/10 10:11:55
    crap I had it all worked out by the time filled everything in was gone :(
  • Keeys2009/02/10 10:42:55
    Got my parents flights from Perth to KL there VERY happy :) :)
  • golfwidow2009/02/10 10:52:13
    Great to hear Keeys :)
  • Keeys2009/02/10 11:35:48
    OMG OMG I GOT FLIGHTS WHOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Gold Coast to KL in November am sooooooooo excited can you tell :) :)
  • lilpretzel2009/02/10 13:34:36
    Great work Keeys :)

    Can I ask what it ended up costing please?

    :)
  • Spackbace2009/02/10 20:49:09
    Found seats from Perth - KL on October 29, and from KL to Gold Coast on 2nd Nov, but didnt realise taxes would be as high as they are :(

    nearly full flights available on both those days tho, so go for it :)
  • lisss2009/02/10 21:36:19
    Nothing on the dates I wanted by the time I checked :( I never have luck with sales.

    Great work Keeys :)

    :)


    For my parents to go from Perth to KL return plus 15kg luggage and a meal each way plus skybus ticket was just under $300 return ($150each).

    For us it was $660 ($135each) for same as above but flying from Gold Coast.

    Not free no but I think its a bargin price for a family of 5. I managed to get arrival same day as my parents depart so we will have a chance to have dinner etc with them the night we arrive.

    We'd been looking at going OS with kids but it was just working out sooooo expencive around $6000 for the week for 5 of us. With only having spent $660 on flights this leaves a hell of alot for everything else. :D
  • lilpretzel2009/02/11 09:09:31
    Holy Crap that's excellent Keeys, Well Done, I'm soooooo jealous.

    Hopefully you can some bargain accommodation now ;)
