Demand Drops, Airlines Slash Prices (in Australia)...And Brits Most Promiscuous
The Age reports that Australian air fares hit record lows (December 8, 2008) even though this month is usually when fares are at their highest.
As demand drops, airlines slash prices for local flights.
For example Jetstar offers Sales Fares (until Tuesday, December 9, all prices in Australian Dollars).
For example Sydney to Brisbane or Melbourne to Sydney for $49 and Adelaide to Brisbane for $89.
The Age also notes that Visitor numbers down as Japanese shun Australia (a drop of 27% in October).
In less serious news items, they mention that Brits most promiscuous as Aussies rank fifth (December 1)...
