According to various media, thousands upon thousands of Australians remain overseas, but supposedly want to 'come home.' Some in Peru have resorted to chartering a plane with travellers being asked to pay A$5160 - huge - for a single (i.e. one way) ticket.
Not all 'stranded' will be booked on SQ, but some won't yet have tickets and will want to travel, even if the fares by normal standards skyrocket. Apart from special repatriation flights that have yet to be publicised, QF has stated that its international flights will cease at the end of March 2020 for a considerable period so that's a major competitor temporarily out of the way for SQ.
And there'll be some foreign business people/tourists still in Oz who need to return to their domiciles.
My apologies if the list I published had largely been available for a few days: I didn't see it a couple of days ago.
No apology necessary. I have just been watching closely as I have flights that I hope they cancel
