Another blow for Virgin Australia - the new partner is shutting down their own flight to Australia.

Probably the slots may be used for BNE-HKG on VA metal instead? Noted the HX HKG-CNS-OOL-HKG varied between 2-4x weekly depending on season.

Cairns needs to sort out direct routes to be successful in the future, this going via OOL is a pain regardless of which direction, Cairns also needs to provide some decent lounge options if it is going to chase full service airlines with business class offering, the current Reef Lounge is poor and not up to domestic lounge quality let alone business class.
