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.BRETT GODFREY said:The majority of our flying is done on one and a half sectors, the length and I don't think you need a business class for a one-and-a-half sectors. What corporates want is schedule integrity and we've got the best in the country. What they want is a lounge like this which is all inclusive, they've now got that.
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.ADAM SHAND said:There's talk that Toll will consider integrating Virgin Blue into its air freight operations. It may require new planes as its 737s are not set up for containerised freight.
I saw the article, and swear Brett has been mis-transcribed.oz_mark said:How does one do one and a half sectors? I think the half sector would be a tad uncomfortable.
That makes much more sense, and generally accords with the length of flights on the eastern side of this big brown land.Mal said:I saw the article, and swear Brett has been mis-transcribed.
The actual comment talked about 1.5 hour flights, not 1.5 sectors
Isn't that what they offer with 'Blue Zone' seating?I still want seats with more space. It doesn't have to be a full business class with silver service.
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.jad01 said: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
I assume that's not cancelling flights willy nilly or time shifting flights.jakeseven7 said:I'm not exactly sure what the best schedule integrity in the country means..
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.Mal said: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.
