  • True Qantas experience would include some flights to nowhere due to last minute cancellations

  • Expensive day trip

  • Hard to judge if $700+ for a day trip is a good deal or not, since no details is given about the destination or activities.

  • Anyone who has sold property this can definitely afford this and take their whole extended family along.

  • this is more of an ad than a bargain

  • Just bring back stock standard mystery flights, no extras, just a flight for the day in another location, or do an overnight somewhere was an option from what I recall, but never did that one

    • I was actually talking about this same thing a few weeks ago. Was too young to take them back then.

      • I'm in SA, and went to PER on most mystery flights. Flying Ansett too.
        Was a great adventure back then

        • Yeah I remember watching it on the news as a kid. Most of the flights were to Melbourne but occasionally you would get Adelaide and Brisbane.

  • At that price, the only mystery is why anyone would take the chance.

  • Qantas? LOL

  • Only good if people need to maintain their status credits.

    How is this a bargain? You got nothing to compare it too. OzAdvertisement.
    Might as well start posting those Mysterybox deals from stores.

  • Sorry, no deal 🙅🏻‍♂️

  • Many years ago I did a mystery flight with Virgin - it included 1 night of 3+ star accommodation and return flights, increased to 2 nights if travelling with someone else. It was great, though I got it for free during a promotion - wonder how much it was worth as Qantas are charging so much just for a day out? Would rather do a road trip within my state, instead of spending almost $800 on a day out with Qantas…

  • Looks like Melbourne is Launceston. Would rather pay stuff all on Jetstar and organise my own day 🧐

  • That's crazy I could get a flight + 3 nights accommodation at reasonable 4 star hotel for that price…

    • Yes….but then you wouldn't be paying an extraordinary price for a mystery.

      • Jeeze, sling me $50 and I'll book you a flight and some accommodation. Keep it a surprise for your right up until the airport?

  • I'll just wait for REX's $736 mystery flights later today.

  • Melbourne will be to Avalon most likely, knowing Qantarse…
    Included activities on the ground: Konga line to check in and back to the plane ;)

  • Sorry, I am negging this because it is more of an advertisement than a deal.

  • I think with the pend-up demand they will sell these planes out multiple times . Rip off price or not :)

  • Yeah I'm not seeing this as a great deal as it appears to only be a day trip. Take for example the Melbourne trip, assuming it's Launceston, a return flight on that day is $212 flying Qantas.

    This means that the day component costs around $500, which unless you are wined and dinned on things like their first class Taittinger Comtes De Champagne, this is not such a great deal. You'd need at least another day with overnight accommodation to make this anything special.

    Edit: Plus with the price of 737, I'm assuming you'll be travelling in a 737 which is not such a great plane as the seats are narrow and the new toilets are tiny. Nothing to crow about.

  • What a rip off. This is not a deal.

    Would love to see how they valued the surprise element

  • Ansett used to do, day mystery flights, as well as overnight ones. I did one from Sydney to Hamilton Island. You called the night before to see where you were going. It was actually great. This one is a bit pricey for me….
