Well, that clears something up. I've googled Doubletree/Hilton/Karratha, etc, every month or two for the past 18 months and found nothing new.The site has moved, looks like chasing gov money:

Yeah, I think it's the Qantaslink 717s that are full economy, but even in the QF 737s business class is pretty vacant, and economy is 60-70% full on my recent flights.I can vouch for the flights dropping off. Booked JASA : BNE-PER-KTA to be taken next week and they phoned me last week to tell me that due to an aircraft change and the dropping of some flights I now have to do PER-KTA in Y OMG !!! How much can one bear ? Lol. However after some negotiating with the more than capable agent we agreed to leave points/payment the same and they will award me J status credits which was essentially what I was chasing.
