Wish they would put them on the PER-BNE-PER instead of nearly 5 hours in a single 737-800

Anyone knows why 787s are fitted in this domestic route? Is it a peak season or this is a temporary arrangement before operating in international routes? Thanks.

The 5th 787 is due to be delivered early July. The BNE-MEL route suppprts the BNE base startup and circulating aircraft through the routes out of MEL until they have the 6th 787 and start BNE-LAX services.

Are just two 787 enough to do BNE-LAX-JFK services?

They currently do that route with two 747's, so I'd say so.

Blast! I just booked a trip to BNE-MEL-BNE last week too, and the 787 is the 2nd flight after the one I chose. :(
