Have Qantas cut some of the additional services they announced when EK ceased flying to Auckland - for Example QF124 seems not to be running. It seems as though other changes have been made as well with regards to Aircraft size (flights between Melb appear to be all B737 some days and not A330 as they annouced at the time).

Qantas has for a long time played musical chairs with operating aircraft. I get it - what suits them doesn't always suit customers. For me it's a factor in choice of carrier for Tasman. Whatever their faults, at least with VA and NZ on those sectors you normally get the aircraft you were expecting - and if you don't with NZ it's normally a bigger plane not smaller. I leave out JQ because I usually travel business or at least PE/Works Deluxe.

Have the loads been as high as first expected? If not, that explains the reduction in seats and aircraft size.
