Air Prize Split For The Lads
Friday November 28, 2008
BROTHERS Benji and Jesse Killeen thought a flight home from Melbourne was fun but both were sky-high before they boarded, learning they were both declared to be the 30 millionth domestic Jetstar passenger."They were so excited," their mother Jo Booth said of the 10 and five-year-olds yesterday.When the Nords Wharf residents checked in at Melbourne Airport on Wednesday they were presented with a huge cake and a ticket to fly the family anywhere in the Jetstar network.Ms Booth said the family was torn as to where to take their free holiday, with the boys wanting snow and the parents sun."The boys would like to go skiing but we want somewhere warmer," Ms Booth said.Accompanying the boys was Red the Ted who had been billeted from Nords Wharf Community preschool for a week and will have his adventure recorded in his diary before passing on to the next student.
