VA says both VA and TT are committed to SWZ and will fly there from Day 1 https://twitter.com/7NewsSydney/status/1019148404847333376 Given the amount of time until it opens, who’s knows what VA will look like b...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2018

With regards to Perth... The Perth aviation market is resetting after a period of ludicrous capacity growth. From a sleepy city all of a sudden we had flights leaving every 90s to go to the Pilbara, EK flying in three planes at day and an almost hourly service to Bali. The money and the people that...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2018

You make a valid point about seat count - my point was that BNE is only moving from 3x daily to 2x daily services, whereas PER is moving from 2x daily to 1x daily service - PER is therefore getting a bigger cut, as a proportion of overall EK services (50% versus 33%). On the non-stop front, yes - B...
