Slightly digressing, anythoughts on what would be QantasLink's' future plans for their fleet?
Are they likely to hold onto the 717s and Dash-8s?

They will have to switch eventually. There are too few routes now that justify turboprops so I'd like to see them fly more regional jets. The Q400s are something I avoid if I have the choice, which usually leaves me flying VA.The 717 is a great aircraft, and I'm sure Qantas would buy more if Boeing had kept them in production. I'd personally like to see a switch to Bombardier jets - I like the rear-engined planes for noise levels up front. I haven't flown any of their Fokker 100s yet, but I used to HATE the Alliance ones, the interior was so depressing.I don't think Qantas is too concerned about its regional fleet showing its age, so I'll guess we are stuck with the status quo for a long while.

As for the regional replacement, QF are not in a hurry to get rid of those aircraft, they are in good shape. Bombardier CSeries is a potential plane.
We will have to wait and see.
