Qantas has another A380 charter flight coming up, but this time it's not for Flight Centre's annual travel agent conference. There's a special Qantas flight scheduled for January 19 2020 which will fly Sydney to LA and then on to Orlando, and it comes back on January 24.


The 'customer' for this is Woolworths, which is running a 'sweepstake' contest where 116 people will win a trip for four people to Orlando to visit Florida's Walt Disney World, including five nights' accomodation.

To enter, you have to buy any three 'participating products' at Woolies and spend at least $30 at Woolworths. Each of the 116 winners will receive a trip for four, which will fill the A380 from business class through to economy. No first class it seems? The first 16 winning entries drawn by Woolworths will be seated in business class, the next 8 in premium economy, the final 92 in economy.

I would assume that whilst the early winners are seated in Business and Premium Economy, the catering is standard for all classes. It will be interesting to see if First remains empty or whether Woolworths hosts are seated up-front.

The cynic in me thinks that there's some staff at Woolworths corporate who have already called dibs!

I would expect so. The other parts of this prize include dinners and other events at Disney "hosted by Woolworths". I would expect a number of people from Norwest will be going as well.

I'm guessing the total cost of this contest (return A380 charter, hotels, park entry and other events for 464 people) is part of why Woolworths is cutting staff pay and ~40% of store management posistions.

I agree that first Class will be filled with the Woolworths Staff, and no doubt families. Strange that Woolworths did not ask for the Quick Service Dining plan, you can get if for free if you stay 6 nights but they have been know to give it to groups only staying for 4 nights (especially in the off season which is when this is). Only 3 meals are included in the prize. Especially when they value the plane tickets so high, as it is currently just over $2,000 return to Orlando.
