Received mailer from Jetstar for the promo.
Can be good for some routes.
Currently only for Club Jetstar members
Can anyone see when it starts for non members. Can't find any info
The sale will start in 48 hrs for non-members.
I see the zero dollar return flight back from Sydney is 9.00am flight which necessitate an overnight stay incurring hotel costs plus early morning cab ride to the airport from Sydney city centre. Not really a zero cost flight considering that !
What more did you expect for 0 dollar
There are ways to avoid hotel and transport costs, could be actually $0 for some.
7kg only, then 50 bucks for a baggage, then other extras
yeah $50 for 20kg return baggage, I think that's more than the non-sale price?
Seems to be min $29 for 20kg one way usually, more if non direct, $50 for 20kg return is good. Air NZ is $25 for 23kg one way.
i missphrased that. $51(iirc) for 20kg baggage on the return leg (i.e. one way)
the outgoing trip to OZ seems to have less as you say. Air nz is usually $20 for the first 23kg though ("the works"?)
Still a good deal for any backpacker with just the carry on
