The QF fare premium is quite impressive really.Just ran a quick search on Webjet:
Rex running Business Saver at $299 one way, VA at $345 and QF at $821.
Match at similar flight times, charge “normal” fare at other times?Only thing which may see VA stay at their current pricing is the fact that Rex are only offering 2 returns a day, whereas Brisbane-Melbourne is scheduled for hourly (give or take) at this point with VA.
Rex has just announced they will start flying BNE - SYD from 20.12.21. The final golden triangle route
$299 in J, slightly tempting, but no lounge in BNE? And two morning (only) departures from BNE the day I looked
Meanwhile VA at the same price has 8 departures all day, a lounge, Velocity points and SCs.
Let me think about that... Um, nup.
