Presumably LA bookings are high for those days. Perhaps there is a large group booking or event causing this (could be at either end)?Somewhat related to the thread topic so i'll put it here.
Current experience of a friend. They have 3 separate bookings on a QF codeshare on LATAM in December (there are reasons for the three separate bookings, but not relevant here). All paid for, etc. Some Y, some J.
They have all been moved from the codeshare direct LATAM flight MEL-SCL LA804 to the pure Qantas direct flight SYD-SCL QF27, same day.
The LATAM flight is still flying, same B787, but the QF5027 codeshare does not appear as bookable from 15 December to 18 December.
Anyone like to hazard a guess as to why this would be the case?
Are the J seats on the old B747 Qantas uses SYD-SCL flat bed or inclined?
