There are lots of reasons as to why JQ often cancels OOL flights first.

Qantas do the same with the 717 services, if one goes down in the network it is usually the BNE -TSV evening flight that gets the chop, they can generally disperse most pax to the QF 737 at 19.50 or JQ service at 20.40, not much we can do about it unfortunately.

High-frequency markets are usually the first to get the chop when a cancellation is required because, in theory, these are the easiest to re-accommodate passengers on other flights with minimal impact. Jetstar fly OOL-SYD a lot.

It is absolutely ridiculous the number of Cancellations on SYD-OOL with JQ. Twice in the past have we got to boarding time (one we were already onboard) before they cancelled our flight for "Operational Reasons." Now QF flies there agin I fly them, no cancellations.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Why does Jetstar always cancel flights to OOL?
