Can anyone tell me why the only flight from Melbourne to Sydney at the moment is at 7.30 pm at night. Makes it very difficult to get to a hotel when your plane lands at 9 pm.
I have contacted Qantas to no avail.

MEL-SYD flights for the next few days:
September 17: Virgin 4:30pm, Qantas 7:30pm.
September 18: Jetstar 11am, Qantas 4:15pm (via Canberra), Virgin 4:30pm.
September 19: Qantas 7am, Jetstar 11am.
The good news is that getting to your hotel will be absolutely no problem: you'll be taken door-to-door to your quarantine hotel, courtesy of the ADF. Be comforted in the knowledge that this service will be given to you even after 9pm.

I would expect it would be to do with air freight. Qantas are using A333 so they can take as much air freight as possible. A 7.30pm flight allows for next day delivery. At this time, freight is more important than the 10 or so people on the plane

Sadly that is the flight schedule for the forseeable future. As Sibelius explains above, it won't be any problem getting to the hotel. I have to work in Sydney from the 22nd October, so hoping quarantine is not required by then, otherwise I'll have to go into quarantine on 7th October. Fingers crossed.

Trying to organise regional flights in NSW...from regional city through SYD to another regional city. No luck really, for through flights, would have to overnight in SYD both ways. Guess I'll be driving instead...bother...!!
