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.

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

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

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.
