    QF9 cancellations

    QF9 has been pretty reliable since its introduction as a MEL: - PER - LHR in lieu of its former via DXB route. AFAIK, neither it or QF10 southbound have had to divert to an alternate airport. The northbound QF9 has been marginally affected by changes to its flight path given the Iranian...

    Comparing SC earn on the various routes between Australia and UK.

    I've been looking at which QF flights earn the most SC from the East Coast to UK/Europe. Connecting via Perth seems to be the winner.
