    Great price, $198 return, includes luggage and a snack. Plus it's onboard regular jets, not small regional prop planes. The date I checked was a red eye, departing Perth at 11:55 pm.

      a red eye, departing Perth at 11:55 pm.

      I've caught those red-eye flights on Virgin or JetStar before, and it's only a ~3.5 hour flight to Sydney.

      Plus it's onboard regular jets, not small regional prop planes.

      The distance from ADL to PER is approximately 1,317 miles (and MEL to PER is obviously longer). I don't think you'll find any airline operating prop planes on these direct/non-stop routes due to range limitations as well as other factors.

    Doesn't REX have a bad refunds policy?

    • +6

      Can’t say, I’ve never needed one from them. They’re pretty consistently the most reliable and on time airline.

      These are promo sale fares which usually aren’t refundable on any airline

    • +2

      Thats all airlines unless you pay for the mid tier economy packages

    • Refund for what ?

  • +2

    Plenty of dates available in August.

  • UFC 305 here we come

    (We walking back I guess)

    OZBargain meetup in Perth?

  • A shame about the departure times, otherwise I would book, all overnight flights :/
    For those who are okay with that, it's a great deal.

    • Yeah pretty unideal, I hate dealing with sleep deprivation for a holiday/ time off

  • +1

    Looks like they're all sold out

    • Are you looking at departures within the sale dates, 28 June – 31 August?

      • Yeah I punched in 30 jun - 6 jul and the following week.

        • Yeah I got sold out those dates too but then on refresh it came up again. Might be a lot of people on the site?

        • +1

          Actually I think the issue is they don’t fly that route on Saturdays which is throwing the website. Shift the return date and it should work

        • +1

          Yes, lot of the dates are sold out, especially closer to weekends, but we did manage to get a couple of tickets. However, had to book an extra night; the hotel charges are marginally cheaper than the non-discounted airfare, so decided to stay for an extra night.

    I've heard they do biggies too.

    FYI; Upgrade bids are very easy to obtain on ZL. A $120 bid into Business should easily clear.

    • Great to know. Probably worth it if you were able to secure the initial flight at a low enough price.

    • +1

      That would be very handy. However as a result of this super cheap sale you'd be competing against a greater number of pax generally, and then because the flights are long distance and/or redeye a greater proportion of those pax would be bidding (and potentially bidding higher amounts).

      So it'd be interesting to hear how people go with their upgrade requests in this case.

      • +1

        Cleared 24 hours prior to departure at $130 from PER-MEL

    Virgin has priced matched (at least the ADL route).

      • It's a fair comment. I live in Melb and can see how someone visiting might find it boring, especially if you're not a foodie or into sports.

    • +8

      This isn't a deal for Brisbane - Sydney flights so you must be in the wrong comments section.

    • But there are 3 cities listed in the deal.

    • Pretty sure Brissy is more boring than Melb? And Darwin?

    Thanks OP. Booked in a family getaway for a long weekend in August!

    Thanks OP

    Thanks - booked PER-ADL and then MEL-PER with good departure times. Will catch the Overland ADL-MEL to tick that off.

    • Overland Adelaide to Melbourne?

      Oh wow, just googled that. (Only thought it was the Indian Pacific or Ghan)
      Now I'm keen for that too

  • I wish I can visit Perth more often. But gosh…5 hours-ish from Sydney is a long flight for domestic in a domestic airplane.

    Flight cost from Sydney also not cheap - Flying to Bali can be cheaper sometime.
