has QF dropped BNE/ZQN for winter 2015 ?

was given few hundred thousand QF ff points & thought I'd try & use them before they became useless.


Looked up BNE/ZQN for Jul/Aug 2015 & only QF flights are via SYD.


Does this mean that JQ are probably taking over the route OR are they giving the route to VA/NZ monopoly.


Anyone know what's happening ?

IsDon,

Get over it, passengers don't know the difference and don't care.

On the original subject. I suspect it is just probably to early to book at the moment, I would only expect these decisions to be made in December / January.

Ollie,

IsDon is just detailing facts. Are you worried about the truth being known?

No what I am saying is that as far as the public is concerned Jetconnect is Qantas.

JQ did fly OOL/ZQN a few days a week few years ago, but it was a disaster.

I'm pretty sure BNE/ZQN this season was mainline crew with VH- aircraft.

Ollie Onion, in regards to your comment below:
"Get over it, passengers don't know the difference and don't care."

Passengers do know the difference, I have heard passengers say why is everybody on the crew a "kiwi"?

Bro, people are not as stupid as you may believe, it is noticed. You may pull it off on a Trans Tasman, but doing flights out of Australia to places like Fiji, Vanuatu, etc. (ie. no NZ connection to this sector), people notice these things and do comment on them.

Some punters are idiots, however.

I lack an Australian accent, having washed up here after my formative years, which were spent everywhere else. Last week the cabin crew took great delight in showing me the Net Promoter comments from one of our J class twarts*, in which she lamented flying on Qantas, yet with a "non-Australian" pilot.

Some people are just misanthropic and/or jingoistic idiots, and their opinions reflect their narrow, outdated world view. It has been my experience that race, gender and citizenship have all been very poor predictors of anything.

*twart: the "R" is silent.

All I am showing in Sabre is NZ with VA codeshare and VA with NZ codeshare.

Best all

yep am betting it will be JQ around twice a week or maybe even 3 times a week.


Once a week with QF was never ever going to be successful.

I just flew it a few weeks ago and it was a VH aircraft with all Aus crew. (Average age about 65 but that's another story).
About 80% full. J class was all staff...

Maybe they just haven't loaded the flights for next season yet, seeing how this one goes first. Give it a few months?

QF185 (BNE-ZQN) departs once a week on saturday and is operated by Qantas mainline.

The only services that are operated out of BNE by Jetconnect are to Auckland only.

However, QF services to ZQN out of SYD are a mixture of both Qantas mainline and Jetconnect flights. Depends on the day of the week.

Oh Gawd, no it ain't! QF is fast becoming a virtual airline.
Online deals are attractive, and with the bonus of seat affirmation.

QF185 BNEZQN ends 27SEP

this maybe the last ever BNEZQN using QF metal. Codeshare with JQ likely from next JUN.
