Jetstar Canberra?!


Morning all,

moving to canberra soon (&#128557 and now that iíve got the hang of getting JQ to credit to QFF decided to go sniffing around for flights

does anyone know whatís the go with this? I gather they have some kind of deal with a bus company for hourly rides to Sydney airport, whereupon arriving you go onto a JQ international flight? However regardless of what dates/destinations you put nothing comes up in search

But the real question is if you will get QF ff points for the bus ride.
(And some here will know what that question means )

You mentioned the bus, and I think you got away with it.

Anyway it is a JQ bus from CBR and not the QF bus

This isn't the scam you're looking for.

You can go about your business.

Move along.

How many times per day does the bus run, and is it running while there is a double points/ credits promo on?

Asking for a friend.

There are 2 bus companies on the Canberra-Sydney route. Greyhound and Murrays.
Murrays has buses departing Canberra at midnight and hourly between 4am and 6pm (7pm some days). They stop at SYD T1 (outside the QF I>D connections area) on the way to/from Sydney Central.
Greyhound has 6 services a day. 5 stop at T1, 3 stop at T3 (as required by bookings).

I know that you posted this with the best of intentions, but my question was rhetorical...
