Not sure you can judge one flight on a saturday night. Also havent you thought many passengers might be either stopping over for the weekend and are actually booked on alternate services
Believe me I wasn’t judging - I haven’t been on a PER-MEL flight that empty in nearly 5 years! It was fantastic for me!
Saying that, down the back was pretty full. I saw on the staff arrival screens total pax was 168, and business was less than half full too so it seems everyone was down the end. I was just more surprised at the lack of premium LHR-MEL customers - Saturday isn’t usually a factor for international routes (every other arrival was 80-100% full)
I also did get this flight for only $2 more than the PER-MEL domestic lunch time service, so maybe it was a one off. Fly this route on a Saturday if you want to try Y+ with a points upgrade!
