Does anyone else think SQ/MI are really pushing it, operating this sector on a MI 737-800?

Axe this route or reduce frequency with SQ A330. Not a good KF redemption.

They should at least move CNS to Zone 8 (on par with PER, DRW) on the redemption table.

I don't disagree with you but it's hardly abnormal - QR, EY, QF, SQ all have 5+ hour flights that they deploy recliner seats on. It's not great by today's standards (just look how good the options are between the east coast and Perth!) but it's one of the realities of the industry; less good fit-outs will be deployed on routes where the seats will be purchased regardless, such as monopoly routes.

Welcome to life in North Australia TRB, the Phillipines Airlines A320 to Manila from Cairns is about the same I think, 6.5 hours in a standard recline, it's why many in the North still take the 2-3 hours south to BNE or SYD and then return back North again, for about the same price there are lots of options with better outcomes, I am in TSV and never consider flights through CNS as a viable option.

I wouldn't fork out for J but for as direct link to Singapore, it's great. As a local it's much more convenient than going through Brisbane or Darwin.

having just got off (today) back to back Silkair and Singapore airlines flights I must say I'd prefer silk air.

Malaysia Airlines Business Class B737 to Darwin is much better than SilkAir B737.
