Good on Qantas for launching more domestic Intra QLD routes however it's operated by a Q400 :eek:

The route is also operated by JQ and VA and I wouldn't be picking QF over the others given Jetstar operates A320's (exit row or row 1) or Virgin operates 737's (business class or economy X) both providing a much better product. Can also get spirits (paid) on both to kick start the holiday ;)

Some days VA Business is cheaper than QF Economy, many other days it's on a tiny bit more for VA J. I know that I'd much prefer VA Business on a 737 over a QF Dash 8 in Economy but each to their own.

QF Economy prices over the next month and a bit.

VA Business prices over the same period.

PPP airport is owned by the council and the representatives at the launch event gave me the model plane from the cake decoration even though I pointed out to them at the start of the welcoming party that it wasn't the Dash 8 which QF is operating - I was seated in an empty row (the icing on the cake?) on the PPP-BNE flight

Same refreshments on board as what @Mattg reported recently but no champagne or even any alcohol on the inaugural flight as departure is before 16:00

Many passengers on the inaugural flight?

Like @henrus, I'm not sure why anyone would choose to fly QantasLink on a Dash 8 when VA J is cheaper. But good to have more options, I guess.

Yes BNE-PPP was almost full (being the start of school holidays) while I reckon PPP-BNE was between 2/3 and 3/4 full...
