What happens when an airline auctions off the price of their flights?
UPDATE: *WARNING* I've heard from someone who has said that they received an e-mail from Enerjet stating that their flight had been cancelled, and their money is being refunded.
HEADS UP EVERYONE - The Enerjet ebay ticket auction is a BUST! I booked and paid for a flight last week and received an email today that the flight is cancelled. Pretty disappointed as it was part of a gift for my boyfriend to get home. They are refunding my money.
I'll try contacting Enerjet and see if they can offer up an explanation.
UPDATE 2: I've heard back from Enerjet, and it sounds like the Calgary -> Edmonton flight was cancelled due to lack of bookings. The Calgary -> Kelowna flight is still a go, as the interest and bookings on that route have been high.
The other day, charter company Enerjet sent me an e-mail to tell me that they were auctioning off holiday flights between Calgary and Kelowna, and Calgary and Edmonton.
It's nice to see a Canadian company trying something a little different. I think in the last two years the only promotion out of the ordinary that I can recall seeing from Westjet or Air Canada are Westjet's 'Blue Tag Thursday' deals.

I'm kind of curious to see where the prices finish up at on eBay and whether there will be any true deals to be had, or if they'll all just be bid up to market value (or higher than the same dates on AC & Westjet).
Enerjet started them at the price of the taxes & fees ($46). At the moment, it looks like the Kelowna to Calgary flight on Jan 2 is at $201.50 after taxes. Prices on Westjet and AC on the same day look to range from $225-$300 after taxes. The rest of the auctions are currently well below market value.
According to Enerjet some of the flights went for well below market value over the weekend. I did a search of their completed auctions, and it looks like they're telling the truth...
Here's a link to recently completed Enerjet auctions on eBay so you can see what they've gone for.
