That's interesting. I was talking to Qantas (in orange coats!) staff on Sunday, whilst waiting to fly LST-SYD. They were talking about 717's into LST. Apparently they won't take Dash 8's beyond MEL. Not sure why but I'm wondering if it's a reserve range issue? Anyone know the answer?QFlink used to fly SYD-LST pre Jetstar with 717s. Used it frequently as a kid!
This is great for Tassie and locks in more well heeled tourists.
I'll be pleased if they can re-establish a route from LST to ADL. Currently I have to drive to Hobart to get a direct flight. That's not too bad but coming back, it lands at 7 pm. I could do without the night drives up the Midland Highway. The upgrades have gone mad with reflectors and it's not an enjoyable trip!
