Qantas is celebrating their 100 year anniversary so they are giving away flights between Australia and US from select cities for $100USD. First 100 customers each day of the promotion score a ticket so good luck 😉

    Shame the destination for all of them is from the US. Only beneficial for those in the states.

    “Sales” like this are so annoying. 10 seats per day, 100 seats in total, spread across multiple destinations… so basically those seats are a needle in a haystack to find, and you have no idea when they have already been claimed. It’s like they’ve taken a leaf out of Jetstar’s book with the dodgy sales which sold out in the first 5 minutes that they continue to advertise for days after the fact. I mean lovely if you get one, but it’s mostly just bait advertising. Oh and to make things better, their website is extremely slow and leaves you on a JavaScript loading icon for like a minute between searches… and wont let you browse days quickly in any way shape or form..

    • +2 votes

      It's 100 a day for 4 days= 400, which is quite generous really.

      Agree though it's more of a marketing stunt and not much chance of getting any.

      • +1 vote

        By day, I meant date of travel, not total released. In which case, it’s essentially 10 seats per flight. But sure, fair it is indeed 400 total I suppose.

    If I book a return from LA.. And miss the first flight due to a no show, will that cancel the return leg of the journey?

    •  

      Yes

      •  

        Do you have a link where it saids that? thanks

        •  

          I found a link here

      •  

        Could you sell the first leg to somebody in the states? Or does the person who bought the ticket have to fly

    •  

      Yes, with qantas and many other airlines.

      But not all airlines. Not the point-to-point cheap carriers who essentially sell you two 1-way tickets.

    •  

      I've read about this before and the answer is yes.

    • +1 vote

      Make the flight from LA your return by flying with someone else beforehand. Still cheap.

    Wow, how ridiculous. It's like throwing a birthday party inviting only your friends but not your family members! So much for "spirit of australia" aye?

  •  

    Those who are based in Oz can't really take advantage of this, but maybe friends and family from the US can visit some of you?

  •  

    If you buy full price tickets from Aus to the USA could you then use the $100 flights for the return leg?

    •  

      Don't think you can do that- "when purchased as a round trip for selected city pairs and travel dates".

      •  

        Yes, so buy a one way ticket to SF. Then buy the roundtrip for 295 AUD to AU. No-show for the return QF leg back to SF.

        •  

          And hope they don't cancel your FF account.

          Also aren't one way tickets expensive?

        •  

          It's a nice idea, but the problem with this plan is that the one-way ticket to SFO (or LAX) is likely to be prohibitively expensive. At least my searching seems to suggest that it will be for all the dates I'm interested in.

      •  

        I'm sure somebody on ozbargain will engineer a creative solution.

          Too easy - buy a return trip 🅰️ with a large travel period, then book this trip 🅱️ in between.

      2PM EST it opens.

        is this AEST or the american one?

        • +2 votes

          I was thinking about this too.

          I think it's US time.

          The airline site is the US one, prices are in $US and the time of ticket release is "2pm PST/5pm EST" - PST being Pacific Standard Time.

          5pm EST is 9am AEST daylight savings the next day (however it's abbreviated).

    My brother in the US tried but said the site basically froze up when deal time started. Is there any ways to increase your chances of scoring or not really?

    • +1 vote

      Same here. My brother has been trying, but it only goes to errors. What a fail.

  • +2 votes

    Yep, What a fail, They cannot keep up with the load of web traffic - Qantas AU website says -"We’re experiencing problems with flight search and working to get this fixed as soon as possible.",
    When trying to book - it comes up as:

    "Internal Server Error - Read
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
