This looks like it has been a bit below the radar but Jetstar have annouced they are taking over the CNS-DRW-SIN route from Qantas from Oct 29, with SIN-DRW flights avbl for SGD$8 until Monday, press release sites increased capacity on route given the move to daily flights to make up for the fact the route is going from a 763 to A320!

It is a little sudden! QF154/QF155 was still showing as a scheduled flight on QF website a couple of days ago!

If interested in discount QF SC's and FF points on the new service QF355/QF356 is available as a codeshare.

The oneworld network in this part of the world is getting thinner and thinner by the day.

well you can still book it as part of oneworld, as a QF flight, higher price.

" Qantas will, however, codeshare with Jetstar on the Cairns-Darwin-Singapore route.
People paying Qantas prices on Jetstar planes will be served meals, will earn frequent flyer points, and will be able to transfer luggage for connecting flights."

Itsn't that great news, you don't have to pay for the meals, Imust rush and book now.........................................

Heh heh... yes indeed. :D That may often be two cookies and a small juice. :rolleyes: They need to give up that charade and begin following the DJ model.

jetstar has it's benefits.

Maybe one of my next SCruns will involve Jetstar overseas to a JQ special destination. Will work out reasonably cheap judging by prices I've seen.

Mind you, I will make sure I liquor up in the QP beforehand, take my anti-blood clotting aspirin and extra heavy duty sleeping pills before I fly the lovely Jetstar.

Oh and my travel insurance will be nicely up to date - just in case there is a 4+ hour delay and I can claim the travel inconvenience penalty!

If it's out of Cairns I hope you get in quickly. I'm not sure how long we can expect the survival of codeshares that earn points/SC's on cheap Jetstar fares. Indeed, the opportunity to "liquor up" in the international lounge in CNS may be soon a distant memory with only Jetstar flights, the few remaining soon to be "enhanced" QF flights and the odd CX HKG flight. :(

Sorry if I have misunderstood what you are saying. You do not earn any SC's/FF points on the cheap Jetstar fares. You only earn SC's/FF points on the QF codeshare but paying the QF fare, not Jetstar, for the route.

You can also earn SC's/FF points on Jetflex fares and Star Class fares where available but these are not cheap.

Sorry - it's my fault I wasn't particularly clear in what I said. I don't believe that QF will offer points/SC's on these Jetstar codeshare flights for too long. As there is no direct competition CNS-SIN they don't need to. To me, it smells like appeasement for taking away the QF flights.

And indeed, paying the extra $700+ to QF, beyond the cheapest Jetstar fares, for a meal, a drink and a pillow and 50 SC's doesn't seem a great investment to me.
