            @Jenny Death: I got on a flight once from Europe back to AU and was shocked to discover my luggage was going to cost me an extra $400 or something.

            But the coat solution appeared. The coat had many pockets and was crazy heavy, but it worked!

    Uber driver would earn more from me going from eastern suburbs to airport than Jetstar

      yep, when the plane is cheaper than the train to the airport… (well, almost)

      Taxi/Uber from my place to the airport is almost $100. More expensive than a return to Melbourne!

      You can use public transport and pay as little as 3.50 off peak

      •  

        The airport to melbourne centre via public transport sucks, it is honestly the worst route ive ever been on. Skybus is worth it for the extra cost.

      train to Broadmedows station, then take bus (901 ?), I have done this route with 30kg luggage lol

        400 goes from Bondi

        •  

          400 goes between Airport and Mascot, it's about $1-2 extra to your trip (saving $13-14 on normal airport station access fees) - it will take ages to get to/from Bondi on that bus

      •  

        Have done this quite a few times if I'm not in a rush. But geez, it's undeniably brutal.
        For me, it's a $65 cab ride home (40 mins), $23.15 (Sky Bus + train, 1 hr) or $3.15 (bus + train + train, 1hr 30mins). ($3.15 being the off peak 2 hr cost)

        I generally go with carry-on so it's not a big deal to do the latter two options. I usually walk to/from Mascot in Sydney (weather permitting).

        At the moment Skybus is $15 (or $28 return), which makes me quite happy to use that. But at the usual $20, it's an expensive bus ride given you most likely need to make another change to get home.

    This price does not include a pilot. You need to add that as an extra!

      It's like self-serve; self-fly…

        Need add $10 for the door too.

    Then the government decides to lockdown either state and you are stuck. What then?

      Go via Avalon. No-one is checking border permits and you can avoid crowds in case of an outbreak.

      Plus, travel time to much of eastern suburbs, peninsula etc is the same as Tulla, or better. No queues to check in, quick easy car return etc.

      •  

        no public transport to Avalon

    Costs more to park there for a day or 2!

    Recent experience with Jetstar has been them cancelling a heap of flights and putting them altogether. Clearly not enough people for all the flights despite the low prices.

      That's a shame, would prefer not to be on a packed plane but whatever generates the most money for Jetstar I guess.

        Virgin when they had their $55 flights a couple weeks back were significantly better. Every middle row was empty and of course baggage included so a better deal at the time. Especially when they had the triple velocity points offer.

        Though it looks there's still cheap(er) Virgin flights from some destinations.

    •  

      That happens to full service airlines too (happened to me on a Virgin flight a few months ago).

    If you need 23kg checked baggage (and better service), don't forget to check Rex and Virgin. Both are offering $39 MEL -><- SYD fares.

      23kg baggage and seat selection. VA $39 is a better deal if you require baggage.

        Just booked through Virgin with 23kg check in baggage and free seat selection.

        It's always an issue with Jetstar as they operate on tight turn arounds, so delays can happen. Probably not as bad on high frequency routes as they can always move people to earlier flights if there is delays.

          Catch the morning flights. THe afternoon and night flights are always the delayed ones.

    Support Rex rather than the domestic duopoly, which came pretty close to being a monopoly really.

    •  

      And then they had the decency to ask the government for taxpayers money for help.

  •  

    Is it 1 way cuz they know you'll be caught in a lockdown the moment you arrive?

  •  

    I looked at tickets last month for $144.36 ($49 for the ticket, and $23 for the checked in luggage).

    If I book the same trip, it is $150; they increased the checked in luggage from $23 to $45.

    •  

      Luggage is the next screen. $45 option including other things like preselected seat, meal and few other things. I paid $100 return with 15kg checked in luggage.
