We’ve heard these rumours for years now.

They have no basis in reality.

That’s the one rumour that sort of makes sense. 12 320’s would be a similar seat count to 17 F100’s, it would also resolve NA crewing issues. There won’t be much further expansion of NA to cannibalise mainline or JQ beyond that.

Nonsense. They could’ve done it years ago with Eastern, Sunstate or National Jet. They didn’t.

Not with the aircraft they have now. Anyone with knowledge of the situation would know this.

Those 737’s are now doing the BNE, SYD and MEL that used to be done by 330s.

The ex DRW 717 crews were replaced (initially) by mainline 737s actually. Who weren’t cheaper.

I think a lot of the fearmongerers need to read up on a little thing called “transmission of business laws” and “pilot supply and demand”.

In reality there’s nothing stopping Network operating A350/B777Xs, might as well start that rumour as well. Or maybe Sunstate, EFA, or JQ Pacific. Or perhaps Aeropelican, they have an RPT licence don’t they....
what crewing issue? Seems to be a common thread that network struggles to crew flights when in reality we could do a heap heap more flying if required.
also the busses are growth not replacement. No plan to retire the Fokker as they make them too much money. In regards to the fact that qf could have done it years ago? So you’re saying that because something could have happened before it means it is to never happen in the future?
