I had a booking in December leaving Sydney to Delhi, via Darwin. This has now updated to via Adelaide but except for departure time now being about 5 min later, nothing else has changed (flight number, seat number etc). So what will be the transit procedure now? Your description above is if you were starting in Adelaide (and would be similar to leaving say Coolangatta on an international flight). Originally via Darwin I was assuming it was going to be much the same as the QF9 procedures. It also says the stopover is now only 1 hour in ADL, which would barely be enough time to get off and then back on again.The ADL int terminal dep zone has been redeveloped in the past few months, now very modern.
First go to check in, as with dom pax.
Go through dom security.
Go to QP/J lounge if you want.
Go downstairs to outgoing immi and int security screening.
Then go upstairs to the closed off area, which is really just the dom zone, but closed off.
Think that the flight from SYD is an overnight layover, to meet the 330 that comes empty from where ever, to fly to DEL
Edit: strange, on a Wed, in Apr 2022, if you put in a dummy booking, it puts you through ADL -> SYD, SYD -> BKK, all with QF, then from BKK -> DEL with TG.
Few days ago, direct flights did come up, then maybe someone changed their mind, for 7 days, when I did a dummy booking, it all sent pax via BKK with TG, as we know, no QFF points or QF SC earned this way.
Sun, Mon, Tue, they put you through ADL -> MEL -> DEL.
Maybe in the meantime, while we muse about it, they (QF) have changed their minds about ADL int flights again
Checking Oct 2022, also they put pax through MEL.
