• Has QF shared the new timings for QF1/2 yet?

  • Not all that surprised with this move, SQ have managed to really maxmise their load factors on the existing 4 services ex-Perth in the last 6 months, impressive considering the additional capacity added moving from A333/B777 to A350/B78X was the equivalent of about 220pax / day each way.
