Hi looking at booking a business class points flight for 4 people Cairns - Mel in early March, it shows availability on A330 flight just wondering what you think the chances are a A330 will actually operate the flight as don’t want to be bumped and given it’s not holiday period just worried they may replace with 737. Our last booked trip Mel-Cns was for 3 of us and got downgraded at the airport and don’t want to incur that this time!!

Given it is the low season I think there is a very high chance the plane would change to a 737.

Given international is opening up far faster than anyone predicted I think more A330’s could be used internationally as well…

Unfortunately the current Fly Flexible promotion is for flights booked up to - and flown - by 28 Feb 22. They may well extend this period mind you, but as of right now I think the fly flexible policy will not apply to flights in March.

Any Qantas operated flights within Australia:

  • booked between 21 May 2020 and 28 February 2022,
  • for travel between 12 June 2020 and 28 February 2022.

@Flyer 777 you have inspired me to book CNS-MEL in the A330 business class during the recent 30% off Classic Reward sale...

I think the fly-flexible is slightly different for classic rewards:

"Simply book:
  • An Australian domestic or trans-Tasman Classic Flight Reward before 28 February 2022 and you can change or cancel your booking free of charge until 28 February 2022"

I've also snapped up 4xJ return MEL-CNS in July 2022 on the discounted rate, during school holidays. Flight is showing as the A330-200 so hopefully it sticks being peak season for MEL-CNS travel, but who knows.

I've not flown that aircraft before in J (done the A330-300) and the seat map/numbering looks a little odd. From what I can glean, to get 4 seats "across" a row I'm selecting something like 2A, 3E, 3F, 2K, with the window seats sitting slightly ahead of the centre pair. Any comments?
