WestOz gets no JetStar specials

OK, so Oz dropped out of the World Cup againist Italy. Here we go to buy JetStar tickets for a few dollars — as they promised — and there aren’t any.

If we’d started from Brisbane, it looks like we could even fly direct to Christchurch; from Perth, not even to Melbourne (there is one standard JetStar flight from Perth to Avalon [near Melbourne] airport, but no special tickets on it). The JetStar help-person I spoke to stated that Qantas effectively won’t let JetStar do other runs.

Perth (even Port Hedland) gets flights down from Asia through other airlines, but not — from JetStar anyway — via Australia. So much for “special offers”.
