AFL fans travelling interstate are fuming over what many see as overpriced and opportunistic flight prices.

Only one out of three finals games will be hosted in Victoria this week, and it seems airlines have been taking advantage of this with massive price hikes.

For instance, a one-way Virgin flight from Brisbane to Melbourne on Monday will cost $1110, according to Seven News, and one-way to Perth can set you back $798 with Qantas.

Fans have taken to social media to vent:



“Virgin Australia aims to provide the best value fares for all of our guests,” a Virgin spokesperson told

“We already have 75,000 seats to Melbourne for the Grand Final week to make sure as many AFL fans as possible can cheer on their team.

“We’ll continue to review our flight schedule throughout the Finals series.”
