• Yeah, I think Tim's idea would be really interesting to see a report breaking down all those numbers, possible routes etc, but it's what I would expect to read on a subscription-only aviation industry site like The Air Current due to how deep it would need to be and how much time and effort it wo...

  • Fair point that the 737 MAX could be too large for many of these routes between smaller cities and towns, but then if it's only flying 2-3 days a week there's a better chance to get higher loads compared to a daily service. I think the key to this will be Bonza avoiding the big  cities as mu...

  • Very good point Sid, my brother runs his business out of the NSW north coast, there are a lot of businesses around there, eg Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour, it's not as if there's nothing but beach shacks there. Plus there'd be more people these days who can run a business from home there inste...

  • I caved and went for $20, gotta make a Qantas flight for my status extension so I may as well make them pay for a little bit of it and earn some points and status credits at the same time!

Checked baggage is limited to 1 x 23kg bag, compared to 2 x 23kg on other economy fares. You still get the same catering as...

I appreciate that each airline ha...

  • Yes I know that's a lot of aircraft to choose between but if I am doing an overnight flight and wanted to really get a good sleep, which aircraft should I be preferencing if I have the chance?
