Now after Jetstar's introduction, a Bombardier Q400 now flies this route for QantasLink. Just the simple fact of it being a propeller plane turns me off flying Qantas to Brisbane - Bring back the 717!
Ditto. QantasLink have got Dash 8-300s flying the MEL-LST route, having given it almost entirely over to Jetstar.
OTT: If I could check my baggage through from PER to LST with Qantas and Jetstar I'd be a lot happier. Last time home to Tassie saw my baggage mistakenly checked through on the JQ flight which saw it get binned in Melbourne. It made my tight connection in MEL even tighter. Interesting that it's possible though using the Qantas system, the baggage label had PER - LST via MEL with the JQ flight number and PNR on it!
Back on the topic, I'm not quite sure where the 737s that used to run the route have gone? Surely they could redeploy the 717s back on this route.
