    hmmm I'm needing a flight from Brisbane to Newcastle in June but bugger it its the day after this promo finishes :(
  • golfwidow2008/02/12 17:16:21
    Ill try but not holding my breath

    :eek: A 30 000% surcharge for using a credit card !!! Unbelievable
  • leny2008/02/12 17:43:31
    Brad, why does the pic have a 30 000 seats for $3 on it? Is that running at the same time?
  • admin2008/02/12 19:40:43
    3000% Leny :)
  • leny2008/02/12 19:47:11
    Just shocking.
  • leny2008/02/12 19:56:36
    And it's kind of a shocker that this isn't on for more that a week. I bet they're just looking for media attention. :D
    But I've got to say that these almost free flights on a few thousand seats is getting ridiculous. They do these things, but they don't actually always deliver their all day everyday low fares.

    Afraid not - that piccie was added when the Jetstar merchant was created ;)
  • admin2008/02/15 10:46:27
    Apparently the sale is only open shop for 1 hour. So that'd be between 8 and 9....
  • nod2008/02/15 11:08:57
    bets on who thinks the server will crash ???

    The odds are too good! :) I don't even bother trying anymore.

    Link now added to the 1 cent Sale.

    :)
  • Brad2008/02/19 15:54:22
    Thanks pretzel :)
  • nod2008/02/19 17:50:25
    so who is going to take up the challenge?
  • ScarletRubies2008/02/19 17:51:52
    Count me out - I've got my Tiger flights and that'll do me for the next 6 months.

    Jetstar = step up from Tiger; but a far cry from Virgin or Qantas IMO. (That said, if I got this instead of Tiger, I would have taken it!)

    Just a heads up, the 1c fares do not give you any checked in baggage. For that you need to pay an extra $10.
  • Keeys2008/02/19 20:06:07
    Crash!!! :( :( :(
  • markw822008/02/19 20:07:01
    no luck 4 me either so far :/
  • markw822008/02/19 20:17:40
    omg i actually got one ...went to book the morning then it errored out ...so ended up bookin evening second time round
  • tlaing2008/02/19 20:22:43
    Seriously massive advertising for a week, plus they managed to get a bunch of free press for "5000" seats that are pretty much impossible to book!

    At least tiger puts up a massive amount of seats 100,000 and you have a chance at them, you can't even get to the booking page with jetstar.. big disappointment..

    Anyone manage to snag one? I've been reloading for 20mins now with no luck..
  • markw822008/02/19 20:32:37
    yeah i got one melb to sydney ...but when i tried using Direct Deposit option it had a error after ....then the seat i wanted was gone ...but still got a 1c seat ...paid with credit card after that just to make sure it went through

    ...once u finally get in there, u can get everywhere like it doesn't time out, it seems they grant a session to people at random maybe ...but i've been trying nonstop after i booked and haven't had any luck getting back in
  • tlaing2008/02/19 20:37:39
    I'm glad a few of you managed to get some seats.. I'm still reloading like crazy with no luck! :-(

    Yea - scumbags. Thats getting pretty common now. They'll slip in as many other charges as they can.

    It a real luck of the draw isnt it. The only time I've had luck with them was when I managed to get a page up 5 mins before advertised start time.

    I really think they need to address their server issues.
    It happens every time. They have a sale and everything crashes
