    Sad to hear O7 having all these teething problems. Need to have some positive PR to regain some of the lost faith of the passengers that would have supported them.

    A few of us here commented on the age of the plains and the prior LCC's flying them.

    I would be really worried if any plane was given a major overhaul in Romania. :shock: :?

    Here's an update, hot off the 'net:

    I guess at least they are reacting swiftly!

    The new schedules seems to make sense in the main

    Weekdays

    SYD-MEL 06:20, 08:30, 09:30, 13:30, 15:30, 17:30, 18:30, 19:30, 20:30*
    MEL-SYD 06:30, 07:30, 08:30, 13:30, 15:30, 16:30, 17:30, 19:30


    * Friday only

    Saturday

    SYD-MEL 11:00, 11:30
    MEL-SYD 09:00, 11:00

    Sunday

    SYD-MEL 16:30
    MEL-SYD 14:00, 18:30


    I cannot see why they would have an 11:00 and 11:30 on a saturday , but the weekday schedules do give hourly service in the rush hours rather than the 2 hourly service throughout the day

    probably more a positioning requirements following the 20:30 SYD-MEL, and that aircraft operates the 9am MEL-SYD on Sat. So the aircraft does not get into SYD in time to operate anything earlier than 11am departure.

    Finally some good(ish) press for Ozjet.

    They really get a bagging from various parts of the media don't they!

    I wonder if he was bumped to Qantas Business Class or Economy? If economy he would not have been a happy camper given the difference in the in-flight amenities and service.

    Perhaps it was done by the inmates of one of the secret CIA torture camps there.

    I don't want them to go under - at least not before they fly out of BNE.

    Someone who I know was bumped from O7 to QF due to a technical problem and ended up in QF Economy

    I wonder what the fare type was? Did they earn full econpmy SCs or discount economy SCs? Assuming of course that the bump ticket was eligible for FF benefits :? .

    You want to experience a flight where the crew outnumber the passengers? :lol: Closest I got to it was a Phuket Air flight from BKK-HKT.

    Possibly.

    My flight was in 2003 and does not seem to be a very popular airline. I think Thai and Bangkok Airways have most of the business BKK-HKT.
