No problem, as long as there is capacity on the day you want. We changed one for a similar reason and all went through smoothly. Good luck.I had no idea this was happening and I'm supposed to be flying to Ireland at 930 and I've booked that flight. What's the likelihood of qf letting me change my flight to the day before for free?
I received two emails from Qantas yesterday saying my flights times had changed. When the initial panic subsided - i actually logged in and saw the change...
Flying mid Aug 2014 QF9 MEL LHR - leaves 10 minutes earlier - now 15:15 instead of 15:25.
hmmm, I didn't receive an email. Only saw it when logging to my account to book car hire.
I think Qantas should let you move to an earlier flight for free. I'd give them a call.

Ahhh NOOOO! Just saw this change when looking at MEL-DXB-LED in July. We are doing MEL-DXB-VCE in March with a break in Dubai (the 23.25 arrival gave you time to check in to an airport hotel for a few hours rest before continuing on). Now with a 3.15 arrival time that's going to make a stopover pretty much useless.
Hmm, but it means paying for two nights accommodation when you used to get by with one...
