The sculpture was as realistic as can be, for something made from sand. There's a tail emblazoned with the kangaroo logo, a passenger cabin, and even an authentic-as-can-be flight deck sculpted with the aid of a real Qantas pilot. The one thing that was a little unbelievable was the space between the seats...it most definitely was not economy.
If you've been to Sydney, you know that Circular Quay is home to The Sydney Opera House and the beautiful harbour the Sydney Harbour Bridge calls home. Thus, you know there are people a-plenty to check out this little promo, which also talked up super-cheap airfares from Sydney to Gold Coast for $89 one way.
While the sand and the deals have washed away, fares are still under $100 each way for the relaunched route.
