    Little bit confused by the advertising - it says Perth - Broome one way from $169 but I checked Perth 16th March and its showing $139. Am I missing taxes?

    hehe admin well I'd say I do fly a lot more than other teenagers and have got 8 more flights before the end of this month to board. Regarding the PER-BME flights, you will see that this route is listed twice. It will cost you: $139 (Travel Between: 05 Feb 08 - 02 Apr 08 On sale until: midnight 28 Jan 08 or sold out) $169 (Travel Between: 29 Apr 08 - 20 Jun 08 On sale until: midnight 28 Jan 08 or sold out) Yep so if you compare the two side by side, you will see that the date range will affect the price. And you willl see that there are no sale fares around the school holiday period, with faes costing you either $199 (Midweek mini on Tuesdays and Wednesdays), and $219 on other days between the 03 Apr 08 and 28 Apr 08.

    $139 is pretty good - last time I looked at booking perth broome it was $279 one way.

    It's a good price. :thumbsup: If you're looking for a full service carrier, Qantas sell tix for $256. But that hardly seems worth it if you can get it for $139 or $169.

    Bugger... I booked some February flights last week - if I'd waited I could have got them for half price :-( Still cheaper than driving though :-)

    Thanks nod :D I must warn you though that I can't get advanced notification of sales, only when they actually come out. I will be out for the majority of next week though. (:() Leaving for Sydney tomorrow, while there I'm flying to Albury, and the day after I come back to Brisbane from that, I will be going away on a 5 day Perth trip via Melboune with no or very limited internet access. But I will be back towards the end of the month. :thumbsup:
