Common questions travellers have about Black Friday
Black Friday and Cyber Monday flight sales have become two of the busiest shopping day deals in Australia. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day in the United States.
Today, the shopping holiday of Black Friday is all about deals and sales. Some Australian companies have hopped on the Black Friday trend and are offering flights for just a fraction of their usual prices.
Some airlines capitalise on the Black Friday shopping holiday by offering flights at major discounts. However, these airlines usually don’t release the details of their sales the day-of. Other airlines opt out of the holiday and stick to their usual flight ticket prices. It depends on your route, dates of travel, and fare class. We always recommend setting up a price alert if you have a specific trip in mind.
Black Friday flight sales work on a first in, first served basis. There may be a limited number of tickets per flight deal. Make sure when you book you check dates and restrictions.
