Interesting to know …
With the stopover now in DRW what actually happens during the 90mins on the ground for the passengers?
Stay on the plane or wait in lounge / terminal?
If you get off what’s in DRW etc ?

Two things are clear about the Darwin stop. Firstly it's not a Stopover at all. Passengers will not be permitted to exit the terminal, and the flight will not be taking on any additional passengers at Darwin. This is a result of current NT government travel restrictions.
Goes without saying you cannot leave the terminal, more interested to know what happens.

RML I suspect like Perth people will go to the Qantas lounge or the boarding area. I am sure there will be no domestic flights scheduled at that time to ensure full separation, and local staff interaction will be limited.

Can I ask, do you think the passenger loads numbers will be limited because of the distance?
