Surprised the T2 lounge for VA in Perth was still operating in the first place, Pre-COVID 99% of VA passenger flights (the 1% are Onslow flights which while chartered, are also open to RPT pax) were run out of T1 Domestic, so the lounge would have only serviced FIFO charter flights.Of course as a...

There's been a vacant lounge space in T2 since the terminal opened, you'd assume Rex would have taken that by now if they had intentions to open a lounge.

Will be interesting to see what happens to VARA with either of these deals, no doubt Alliance would be very happy to buy the charter business but the WA intrastate network on the other hand... potential spin-off / demerger of the old Skywest?

I'm guessing because Scoot is serving Perth 3 times a week with 787-9's at the moment (and has been since March, one of very few routes Scoot has continued to operate passenger services on), that they're not putting SQ flights back on the route just yet.Note that SQ's scheduled services still do ...

It'll be very interesting to see what happens to the Terminal 1 Domestic lease going forward. VA 2.0, especially if it is a LCC / Hybird could easily operate out of T2 (and would likely not want to pay to use T1D anyway which would likely be too big for any rebirth of VA). Part of me wonders if P...

International flights to leisure destinations ex Perth (think Bali) left today at about 20% load factor, some as low as 3% (less than 5 pax). Overall there's very few international flights leaving with over 50% load factor (only ones I've seen above this are QF to LHR, EK to DXB and QR to DOH) an...

The A320s in the Tiger fleet are very slowly getting converted for use by VARA (The 5th A320 for VARA is due to enter the fleet shortly after it got a re-fit in Singapore a week or two ago), but they don't have the same high density seating as they do on Tiger (162 on VARA vs 180 on Tiger). Despi...
