Plenty. Not much choice getting back from PER unless you waste a day. Every time I've taken the red-eye it has been full in both economy and business.

I'll answer my own question...Yada Yada said:I wonder if they will offer a decently priced SYD-MEL-PER flight for us Sydney-siders?
I took the following prices from the OzJet website:wabusinessnews.com.au said:OzJet announce Perth fare details

OzJet is moving quickly with plans for its new Perth-Melbourne service, today announcing details of fare prices and the start of ticket sales.
Tickets go on sale from today, with the service due to commence as planned on March 14, using its all-business-class Boeing 737 aircraft.
OzJet's Perth to Melbourne fares will start at $499 one-way and includes free hot meals on fine china and complementary beverages.
Other fares will be available at $599 and $699, and a full flexibility fare at $799.
In other developments since the Perth-Melbourne leg of OzJet's operations was announced recently, the service will operate seven days a week, rather than the six originally planned.
Also, passengers will be able to fly between Sydney and Perth - with a stop in Melbourne - from $699.
The Sydney-Perth fares will range up to $999 for a fully-flexible ticket, and a direct service between the two capitals is due later in the year.

I don't mind the SYD-MEL-PER timing - it works well for me as I can travel after hours and be there ready for an early start the next morning.Dave Noble said:Shame that their flights are such anti social times
serfty said:I would not mind betting that QF Yield management are busily sharpening their MEL/SYD<>PER D/I fares ready to sell on their website; just like they have done for MEL<>SYD.
danielribo said:Hopefully they'll sharpen a little more than they have for SYD-MEL. QF are charging $409 each way which is double O7's fare while still offering an inferior product. Maybe we'll see a quality jump as well as a price drop (can only hope anyway)
