Possible increase in service for the summer

23NOV-01FEB
SQ247 arrives MEL 05:25
SQ248 departs MEL
07:10
operates on 3,5,7 A333

22NOV-31JAN
SQ257 arrives MEL
23:15
SQ258 departs MEL 00:30
operates on 2,4,6 A333

only A333 so no F or suites but it might increase our chances of saver J which is particularly lacking where I have been looking at the end of jan.
That 05.25 departure ...hmmm lets all get up at 2am to catch a long haul plane, can't see that being too popular!

So assuming these services go ahead, how many flights a day will MEL have? 5?

No not quite each service is only on 3 days in the week so on 6 days in the week there will be 4 services. As stated Cruiser it is only proposed at the moment so not in the schedule yet.
Well there's already 4 daily flights... so are we talking about a 5th flight 6 days a week?

Not doubting you at all mate but just noting 218 currently scheduled dep MEL 01:05 so suggested 258 dep 00:30 just looks weird - where did you actually see this proposal?
Hi cruiser. Just someone like Crystal. I've been looking for a j saver end of jan for some time and nothing for a while. Then the call center blossom said wait a while and a few more may appear and came up with these as possibilities. Nothing set in stone yet but I'm keeping my eye on the website and app for the next week or so.

Looks like that really odd departure from MEL at 00.30 may go head but the other departure I mentioned seems to have bitten the dust . I am no expert on the SYD and BNE departures but it looks like they have extras too. Now to wait for the timetable to be updated and then hopefully those J savers I was after will appear:D

How did they get the slots at SYD for this? I'd have thought on that time (0625 and 0740) things were pretty busy.....

Can see why extra services into MEL reqd - arrived in this morn on 237 - 8/8 in F - I think something like 59/60 in J - 217/218 or something similar in Y - total only 5 spare seats on whole plane.

Good figures for SQ and deservedly so. My preferred carrier.

Over the last few weeks it has been exceedingly difficult (at least in Y) to get seats from SIN to MEL - on SQ, QF, JQ, EK or even MH via KUL. Ditto with SYD and ADL so it was difficult to get options via those cities too. The only options I came up with that were in the order of $1300 return were EY via BNE (EY code on VA domestic), Royal Brunei via BWN or separate tickets on KL/JQ via DPS.
