• Indeed smart move... Though I would say it has more to do with improving fleet utilisation than the desire to offer a daytime flight. Though, I haven't seen the timings yet to confirm that.

  • @JTG - I'm not sure why these subjects always seem to descend into people claiming to know what "most people" want to do. I do know, some people said the Qantas's flights from PER to SYD wouldn't work. I do know, that some people will choose to fly via 1 stop, some will choose to fly non-stop, ot...

  • @APACPete - have you considered that you're probably not Qantas target market for this flight?

  • @Tonym - sorry this seems like very odd logic and only would result in big players getting bigger and consumers losing out through lack of competition.

  • While certainly not enjoyable, you could probably do this flight another 50times and not have this happen again. The airline isn't going to allow a connection which isn't generally possible, because it costs them money. But travel has many elements that can go wrong, and even longer connections m...
