The PER Situation

To all who want routes back in PER,

We in Melbourne also want new routes which Sydney gets such as a direct service to Tokyo, Vancouver or Dallas but have to suck it up. We have to suck it up, cities like SYD will get first priority and I can see why. Probably most in Brisbane feel the same especially Adelaide. There is nothing one can do about it. Not an offence to PER PAX. Have a good day!

You forgot about Hobart and Canberra. ;)

There's nothing international about Hobart International Airport except charter flights to Antarctica... even Canberra gets more international charter flights.

While we're at it, why doesn't Avalon or Brisbane West get international flights?!

(Yes, this is sarcasm)

They can maybe go buy a private jet or even an A380 and start their own services to wherever they wanna fly to.

To state the obvious, I live in Perth.

I actually think we are very spoilt for choice here, particularly when it comes to flights to the Middle East.  We have 4 flights on Singapore Airlines a day, 2 x Emirates (one A380) etc.  I would love a flight from the West Coast of the USA to fly all the way through via the east coast/Auckland, but that would be wishing.

People whinging in Perth have no merit.

Hey Chris

I think the point is the some eastern states people are saying we are whinging about flights. 

Where they are getting that from no idea, they must be bored today or something. :)

Hang on.  QF wants the loyalty of the residents of Perth but don't want to fly internationally from there. Now if we had to fly east anyway no problem.  However when a QF "sale" to HKG is promoted we don't see anything, in fact we see more expensive airfares.  

Given the hop to Sydney is bugger all ex MEL I'm not sure the comparison is legit.  Regardless QF have forced the hand of PER residents and I believe most will take the most convenient rather than pay a little extra to go the QF option especially when that option sees us on non-QF metal.

Perth is indeed well serviced by a lot of world beating airlines. It would probably surprise a lot of east-coasters to see the amount of traffic that flies off across the Indian Ocean every day. For a city of 2 million I don't think Perth ressies have cause for complaint, apart from Qantas customers who would like fly the national airline. And the airport is slowly evolving into something that could be a very appealing option for a lot of travellers.

Direct QF flights to key Asian capitals would be great, but are well catered for by others, and we can reach most major US and European cities one stop with Emirates. Both Virgin and Qantas offer a fantastic service across the Nullabor. Everything is awesome!

For me, if I could indulge a wish,  I would like to see a QF daily to Dubai on a 787-9, that flys onto Frankfurt, and connects in DBX with the QF A380s from the east coast and London in both directions. And another to Johannesburg to give SAA some much needed comp. Reckon both would be winners.  

The Johburg flight would be an attractive alternative for non-Sydney flyers taking the dogleg domestic flight to connect at SYD. You would still have a silly bus to connect between domestic and international though.

And the Perth/Dubai /Frankfurt flight provides an alternative entry/exit for overseas visitors to this country, services the locals, plus puts Qantas back into Europe on the right sized aircraft.

Otherwise Perthlings are spoilt rotten by the choices and frequencies we have. No whinging here!
