Am I being really really thick or can someone explain this to me. " $13 fares will not be available on all routes, flights & days during the stated travel periods". Say what? You say yes sign me up and then there are no flights? What happens then? Totally confused.

They only have a few of the cheap seats available on each flight. You need to work out which flight on which day you want to travel and how many people going and see if any of the cheap seats are still available for when you want them.

And you have to be very VERY quick to get them.

we tried to get a cheap flight on any flights from a specific place on the south island and to the north island and nothing for 10 days.

Means the cheapies are only available on some days/flights/routes, not all of them.

first come, first served, if they're sold out they're not going to put on a bigger plane to fill them.

the grab-a-seat is more like grab-an-empty-seat-for-as-long-as-it-is-empty

flying standby on the internet :P

Sundays - loooong gone! I watched them disappear as I was trying to get onto the booking page and then when I finally did get to it, there were only the $13 fares from Raro to Auckland.

Bahumbug. Never mind.

Sundays I find a good time to look at grab a seat (being an insomniac has some good points) at about 3am. Thats when they appear to come up for the day. By 6am they are all gone. I got $43 to christchurch, I think was my best deal.
