So presumably they're hoping all the people who miss out on a ticket will book a different flight or holiday - surely if you arrive there and see too many people there will be no point waiting around ?
The price is brilliant of course, but I fail to see the benefit to STA travel, unless there's going to be a huge amount of free advertising in the local area of the stores.
I thought an online entry form would get them a huge database of potential customers to use for mailshots or something, but I'm always a bit suspicious of things which appear too good to be true.

The first 49 people in line at each location will be able to secure the £49 fares. Only one £49 fare will be able to be bought per person with no option to buy via telephone or online.

An additional 49 return tickets to Bangkok will be available for £299 at the London Victoria and Birmingham stores, which will be able to be booked with a £49 deposit
“Last year, when we unveiled £75 fares to New Zealand, there were people queuing around the block for two nights, so make sure that you’re prepared to give it 100% to snap up one of these £49 deals to Bangkok. Good luck!”
I remember that there were people camped out to get in! I suspect there will be people camped out two or three nights beforehand!
What prevents someone putting up a pop up tent and camping out and then have there friends join them around 5am on 28th. If your 49th in line there is no guarantee you would get a ticket. Waste of time unless your right at the front of the queue.
Too much hassle with no guarantee of getting ticket for that price. Only to be offered a £299 ticket with 3 plane changes and a 72 hour layover in Bangladesh no thanks

​you can always buy bags of clothes in Bangladesh and open your own eBay store
sorry Rachel meant to reply thaigray lol
Last time STA did this for a £75 return ticket on Air New Zealand more than 60 smelly, grotty, dirty, cheapskates oO camped outside the London Victoria branch for up to two days, trying to grab the 50 tickets on offer.

All 50 were sold out within an hour of going on sale, although those still in the queue were offered discounted fare tickets of £499 return - around half the price of a return air ticket. X)

​Been back packing twice around Thailand including Koh Tao twice, just scare stories. They could have chosen other countries and cities in times and in the future no doubt. I'd happily go back.

I went last year. Nowhere in Thailand is particularly 'safe' but Koh Tao certainly isn't dangerous either.
Maybe that's why they keep bringing Chicken over from there.
If people are queuing up two days in advance for a £250 discount then they truly are mental. It would be considerably less effort to earn the extra £250.

​if they get a return ticket for £49 to Thailand, thats a much bigger saving than £250. normal price is around £400-500.
This does feel alot like a competition which is probably why this deal is not hotter.

Sub £300 for a while now with KLM!
If you can queue for a couple of hours and get this price then you have done great. otherwise just check holiday pirates or secret flying a couple of times a week and wait for the sub £300 flights to pop up. The NZ saving were massive as there might be the odd £500 to £600 flight pop up, but the saving was still massive and well worth a night camped out. definitely not worth it for these flights.
Jersey is worse .. there is a murder or more every week, and blooming oxford too. Not to mention Glasgow, "theres been a mur-dah".
hahahah **** hell.
Managed to grab mine from the London branch. 30ish hours in the queue and I got spot 32. I'd say it was worth the time
