I just got the most amusing email from Virgin Australia since I’ve booked my flights around Australia on them. I think they are desperate to fill those first class or business class seats because they’re open to the highest bidder! I checked the site out and it looks like the starting bid is AU$150, and even with that bid, the site told me that there was a very low probability that my bid would be chosen. I think I’m going to stick with my original plan of bringing chocolate and flirting with the flight attendants. We’ll see how far that gets me to the front of the plane.
