Jetstar is starting flights from OOL - ICN next week. Consequently there will also now be some 787-8 flights timetabled to and from the Gold Coast each week ex Sydney and Melbourne. Might be a better option than those awful A320s or even Virgin economy.

Seoul flights look a tad empty next week. First flight in is not even half full. I’m not sure if they are targeting Korean or outbound Aussie travellers here?

There are also over 100,000 of us Korean-Australians too, as well as students who might be willing to fly JQ.

I suspect this flight will be skewed more towards inbound traffic from Korea, which is why the codeshare partnership with Jeju Air is so important.

The MEL departure in the morning isn't great... a bit too early and I find the lunch menu better in the F lounge. Same goes from SYD. As someone who used to take JQ35 far too often, these timings wouldn't make me book for the experience. That said, I am considering a visit to South Korea in the future, if the service survives.
