Could prove to be a winner. Good luck Jetgo.
Yep. I had friends that recently left town that would drive 500kms to LM for a flight to Perth as it was around $100pp cheaper each way. So for a $800 saving they would spend about $150 in fuel and 10hrs in the car.

I think a lot of eastern states people forget, or just don't realise how big and empty the NW is. And given a one way ticket to PH on average is $500, skipping the waster 6-7hrs flying south then back north is fairly appealing.
