"Great discussion. Certainly raises intereting points about yield and capacity. Rembering Qantas’s international business until recently was making a loss year after year. Now profitable again on the international side they are clearly happy to sacrifice market share or volume of total seat..."
"I wish they would can the Neil Perry tie up it’s run it’s course and is almost a detriment to Neil’s reputation these days. Obviously the food is made to a price point of QF’s choice but I think it needs a change up it’s lost it’s lustre completely in all..."
"There is no connections really besides the odd jet star flight to BKK etc etc but it’s timing is perfect for WA folk who are using SIN as a final destination and back in your own bed that night on return. If your coming from MEL/BNE/SYD it’s certainly not a credible option as you ne..."
"Great news and I have certainly flown them again on the route since it has been put back to the 330 business suite 👍. A good option for QF only Adelaide folks also who can take a morning flight from Adelaide to Perth and hop on the mid day 330 to SIN rather than back tracking East."
"Nowhere does Qantas class the 737 as a “domestic aircraft” it’s all in your head. Qantas fly the 737 on international routes from Per, Syd, BNE & Mel. MEL-DPS 737 is longer than PER-SIN also. QF71/72 has been a 332 for at least a couple of months now."
"Adelaide pax have a good option to get a morning flight to Perth and hop on the the daily QF71 PER-SIN A330 saves some time going the wrong way East first. Same with the daily QF9 PER-LHR. Ultimately if there was profit in it for Qantas they would be flying from Adelaide. SQ, EK etc are all flyin..."
"QF 787 premium economy is selectable by plats on domestic routes where it is not for sale. QF 9 &10 even between PER-MEL-PER is technically part of a international flight and part of a saleable cabin for MEL-LHR-MEL."
"I had a premium y to J points ug come through QF 10 LHR-PER in March. Was a gold at the time. That long flight is superb for continuous sleep!"
"Perth flight is usually before the rush in my experience so should be ok for QC and those with lounge passes . It’s the best time to depart and arrive back to Perth before midnight. "
"Originally Posted by SimonFrost Are the A330-200’s out of PER refurbished ones? Don’t feel like spending my points on Skybed Mk1 Yes business suite. And you have the benefit of not back tracking from the east."
"Neither of those flights probably Perth on QF72 as the flight has only just been changed back to a A330 and may have lots of j available as previous available and sold J was for a 737. "
