Introducing one of the fastest-selling flights – Qantas flight to nowhere SOLD-OUT in 10 minutes!
How crazy is that?
It is by far the fastest selling in Qantas history.
It is unimaginable how many people would pay $800 or probably more for a flight to nowhere.
Qantas Flight To Nowhere SOLD-OUT
Well, as shocking as it might be, 130 people in Australia rushed to buy tickets for this flight.
Qantas lost a staggering $2 billion because of the pandemic.
To make up for some of the losses, it launched its own “flights to nowhere” program which will take off and land in Sydney.
The airline promised to give passengers spectacular views of Australian sites such as the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru.
Both of which are off limits to a lot of people after closing the borders.
“From the sky, there are no border restrictions.”
Passengers would be able to enjoy Kata Tjuta, Byron Bay, Bondi Beach and Sydney Harbour.
However, there’s no need for baggage on this seven-hour flight.
The plane will fly within 4,000 feet to give passengers a closer view of all of these landmarks.
The flight’s economy tickets were sold at $787, premium economy at $1,787 and the business class would set you back $3,787.
The flight was sold out in as fast as 10 minutes!
A Qantas spokesperson said:
“We knew this flight would be popular, but we didn’t expect it to sell out in 10 minutes.”
This fast selling of the tickets clearly shows how people miss flying and travelling.
It might not necessarily take people anywhere geographically, but it sure does take them somewhere away for a few hours in the sky.
This means work for the people at Qantas, and hope and joy for passengers.
With this initial positive demand for these new flights to nowhere, the airline is looking at scheduling more of them.
Way to go Qantas!
