From next year?
Yes, this os more so a JQ question, but thought I would ask here first.
When I used it, there were many pax who were doing the orange D card shuffle.
Must be a demand for it.
they are essentially re-positioning flights with revenue passengers. The majority of pax on these flights seem to have D passes
I wonder if it's cheaper to reposition without pax though, as surely there must be a different cost to not have a full plane, wouldn't even need to be at the terminal for instance, etc...
I dont know but it appears that JQ think it isn't.... plus it also gives a few more options for those who are actually taking the flight from or to the international destination.
I must try the Dreamliner J class at least once.
But will keep an eye out for the other Dreamliners that might be doing the MEL to SYD routings.
I did hear some people complaining that they were not going to do the JQ35 again, because of the immi lines, you know, the pains of having to personally show up at check in row J at SYD airport, collect boarding pass, go through immi, customs & int security, and then do the same on arrival into MEL.
For me personally, its the kick of doing a "quasi/pseudo int flight".
Not sure what people expected, some of these D stickered pax, I knew what to expect, but didn't these other people who complained, while in the snaking line???
OK, thats it from me on this thread/topic, unless any new "ideas" pop up.
