Nature Is Healing As Jetstar Starts Cancelling Flights To Bali Again
 
A bit of light-hearted humour :)

Nature Is Healing As Jetstar Starts Cancelling Flights To Bali Again

To some, having a flight cancelled and being issued a travel voucher is an egregious inconvenience but to some seasoned Jetstar travellers, it feels like a warm blanket. A sign that things are truly getting back to normal finally.

Punters have reported that Jetstar has been cancelling cheap flights to Bali left, right, and centre and Kim couldn’t be happier about it. She told The Bell Tower Times,

“It’s been such an unprecedented couple of years and I was wondering if I’d ever get to hold on the phone to Jetstar for 5 hours before them hanging up on me and making me call back 8 times. For the first time in a long time, I feel things are going to be OK!”

Brandon was equally stoked about having his hard-earned money converted to a voucher that made a wonderbra for a bull seem useful. He told us,

“I’ve waited so long to be totally and utterly Jetstar’d up the arris again and they came through with fine form. I snapped up one of those cheap deals and got the email a few days later saying I was now the owner of a travel voucher, how good”

Jetstar has responded to the cancellations in true Jetstar form. Issuing a statement saying,

“People think Jetstar is in the flight business. No. Jetstar is in the constantly circulating travel voucher business. See, we still get the cash and you get a voucher that doesn’t really suit your needs. Think about it, you’re flying Jetstar, do you deserve any better?” Didn’t realise we were transporting the King & Queen of air travel”

Chris couldn’t agree more. After taking time off work, he was stoked to find Jetstar wouldn’t be flying him to a cheeky little getaway in Bali. He told us, “yeah, harder Jetstar-daddy, harder, treat me like the economy flying scum I am”.

Of course, many punters won’t feel like things are truly back to normal until they are slugged an outrageous sum for attempting to carry on an extra kilogram of carry-on luggage.

Similarly, well seasoned Jetstar travellers can only get the true thrill of cancellation when they are actually at the airport and are meant to board the flight within minutes.

According to Robbo, “that’s the full Jetstar experience, and I’m fanging for it mate”.

To think that if you didn't know better, you would swear that was a pisstake...However, I'm not so sure...Like father, like son.

And JQ in fine form too:
Stranded Jetstar passengers sleep on gym floor after flight cancelledSh*t happens sometimes. Aircraft go U/s, runway lights stop working and weather grounds aircraft, but it's amazing how Australian airlines have immunity to treat pax (and staff) with absolute contempt when thing's go wrong.

I am not a fan of many things decreed by the EU mandarins but this is worthwhile…

Well, mostly drinkable water unless you live near a RAAF base or a commercial airport that has its own on-site firefighters, then you have carcinogenic PFAS to contend with.

Ongoing issue. Someone forgot to re-hire the people that organised the hotel contracts. No contractÖ no room. Oh wait, they could just pay the standard rate! :E But noÖ. :}

Surely they could ask Mother(QF) to help with hotel rooms

Different companies unfortunately. Unless itís group wages policy or some other policy nonsense that needs to suit the current narrative.

What is happening at 1 star. No staff? General incompetence? Getting a flight out of Darwin anywhere near on time appears to be impossible. Its getting to the point where lotto offers better odds.

Darwin?? Lol. You mean out of ANYWHERE? Most things are running an hour behind at best sometimes 2.
Why? Lack of staff sure, infrastructure (lack of) tick, disengaged staff ding ding, ridiculous disembarking procedure, where do you stop?

whoever came up with the disembarking procedure needs a slap. The savings in fuel from fiddling with the ula matrix for a more aft cruise c of g can't be worth the non stop **** around every sector as we wait for 2 cans to come off first. The pax go ape

TBH, canceling these Bali is not a bad thing, current foot and mouth getting around means less exposure etc.
