When are you back? Looks like the launch has again been postponed from 2 to 13 December even though ACT came out of lockdown today...
All going well, 5 November. Although I don't believe QLD will be letting people in from down south anytime soon.

Looks like the launch has now been postponed to 17 December in line with QLD border opening...

Joke of the year 😂

Politicians and public service are experts at avoiding Virgin, there is no way they would fly Jetstar if they could avoid it.

We need a maverick independent who knows how to use FOI to get the data and compile a table to get statistics so we can shame the QF sycophants.

Gold Coast and Brisbane were going to be prime markets out of Canberra for Jetstar, it keeps Virgin in check and Bonza if it ever gets going, can run mid day flights to not effect business traffic. Not sure how strict Qld are going to be on checking those that got a covid test before their flights.

I think CBR-OOL is a one market carrier, the times I’ve used it, it’s been pretty reasonably priced ($80-$100) and normally only 1/2-2/3 full.

Perhaps a CBR-CNS? I see they are giving Newcastle to Cairns a run at the moment. Probably a good Bonzo route otherwise.

QantasLink is already doing CBR-CNS (or was when the border was open, anyway) with reasonably high yields. Why would Qantas cannibalise its own high-yield route?

Agree - they would only do this if they run out of planes and if I recall correctly the QFLink fleet was 100% utilised prior to the NSW outbreak that spread everywhere… so suspect it must be getting close to 100% again, soon?

Don't forget they now have access to a whole fleet of E190s.
