They haven’t cancelled MEL - NRT on weekdays. Tickets still available for purchase on weekdays.
I have a JAL QFF classic reward flight on a Weds in August which is still intact. What change did they make?

Is it possibly a timing change? I have noticed the JL Melbourne - Tokyo flight at the moment is during the day but I have a rewards flight booked for November 2023 that has an 00:45 departure time. From memory, way back in the good old days of 2019, Qantas flew the day flight Melb-Tokyo, perhaps they have been using the Qantas slot and have to give it back in March and revert to their old slot timing of a 00:45am departure?
