    Thanks for the link, Mal. Interesting article.

    A few things caught my eye:

    I still want seats with more space. It doesn't have to be a full business class with silver service. Just WT+ equivalent seating would do me.

    It would be great to see larger aircraft, esp on the SYD/BNE/MEL-PER sectors. It probably does not fit their low-cost model but wide body planes are much more pleasant to fly in on longer routes.

    How does one do one and a half sectors? I think the half sector would be a tad uncomfortable.

    I saw the article, and swear Brett has been mis-transcribed.

    The actual comment talked about 1.5 hour flights, not 1.5 sectors :)

    That makes much more sense, and generally accords with the length of flights on the eastern side of this big brown land.

    Isn't that what they offer with 'Blue Zone' seating?
    With the exit rows and the front left hand side row that provides 9 seats for a 737-700 and 15 seats for a 737-800

    Hi Jason. You are right. Lately I've been paying the extra $30 and sitting in row 15, so the legroom is great. Problem of course is that row 15 is generally last off the plane. :(

    To clarify - I'm wanting extra width. The 3+3 seating is just too damned narrow. I want a few rows of 2+2. :-|

    I'm not exactly sure what the best schedule integrity in the country means..

    I assume that's not cancelling flights willy nilly or time shifting flights.

    Might also include delayed/late flights, but doubt BG was talking about that in the BS article.

    They've just cancelled the late Sunday night BNE - TSV (don't know till when, but it's not a one-off). Grrrr! Thank you DJ, you lost my custom.
