• $739 one way Perth to Brisbane is considered a Red-e deal?!? Assume AJs promise of low fares will kick in soon...

  • Best you avoid southwest airlines if ever flying in USA. I know what you mean about those old Virgin Blue days but that was their business aim - making flying fun and light hearted with humour as well as keeping the air fare. I recall their advertisement for bottom of the barrell fares in South A...

  • Why are they not serving food? Is this a VA thing or an industry wide airline thing?

  • @tmsmile - So could Qantas not out compete with virgin years ago when they were losing hundreds of millions? - your theory suggests that's the case that when one airline loses profit it's because they couldn't compete with the other. It comes down to bad business management and much needs to chan...

I think VA could do without feeding pax with cheap and nasty food (big fan of virgin but their Economy h...

And also to support VA as they they only ones that fly there twice a week still :) we were also due our honeymoon to Mauritius back in April which is all booked and paid although postpo...

  • Poor and inconsistent form by range of airlines promising to refund flights means I won't be booking jack when there's so much doubt on future of flying particularly intl..although I don't think anyone in right mind is booking anything in the future these days anyways.

  • Poor refund service

    Air Mauritius - same holding onto funds but refund has been processed..

  • I did CBA last week for Air Mauritius - that was second call I made though, first one was denied. Weirdly enough Air Mauritius refunded one ticket and not the other even though share same PNR booking. So I lodged a dispute.
