Looks like it's in the middle of woop woop. Got non-cancellable return flight Sydney-Gold Coast, but will see what I can arrange... might have to give this one a miss though. :(

Looks like the League are being made additional offers they can't refuse.

Don't you love airlines...
My return flight from Sydney to Gold Coast with Virgin was about $285, booked as a non-cancellable job.
To change the return flight to Brisbane to Sydney would have meant an $80 change fee plus whatever the difference in the cost of the flight was. Looked online, and seeing as BNE-SYD was actually a bit cheaper ($99) than OOL-SYD ($108), I thought it'd be fine.
But the guy at Virgin said the difference in fare was actually $44, so in total I'd have to pay $124.
JJ: "No it isn't - I'm looking on your website right now, and the BNE-SYD flight is $99, not $152."
Virgin bloke: "Sorry, that's what it is on my system."
JJ: "But then I might as well just book the one-way flight from BNE to SYD online, and just not turn up for the return OOL-SYD flight, and then it'll cost me $99 instead of $124. Plus you won't get to re-sell my seat - that's crazy!"
Virgin bloke: "Yes it is, but that's our system."
JJ: "OK, leave the flight as it is then."
JJ then goes on to the Qantas site, and sees that if I use my QFF points + cash I can get that flight for $9.68 or something. Job done!
Idiocy!! :rolleyes: :/

It's posts like that one above that makes me wish this site had a like option (or even a laugh one!) :D

Yeah Virgin sounds crazy but not as crazy as Ryanair who seem to have pressed the self-destruct button!

Venue changed.
Now seating (boo!)
But I got allocated a good seat (yay!)
And as it's in town it'll save at least $100 in cabs (double yay!!)

Do we know why the venue was changed? Seems pretty unusual to me.

The promoter said it changed to a "more intimate venue" & due to punter demand for a place closer to the CBD of Brisbane. Personally I think sales may have been struggling due to the fact that many Brisbanites would have opted to go to the earlier announced show on the Gold Coast 77 km away.
