the most popular destination in SE Asia,
That is a big call. I guess you meant "...in SE Asia for West Australians"?

The most-visited destinations by Australians in 2015 (based on ABS data to October)

New Zealand
Indonesia (my edit: I guess Bali?)
USA
UK
Thailand
China
Singapore
Fiji
Japan
India
Not much of a shock if people decide to fly two hours North to Thailand which is number five on the list but the second most popular in SE Asia.

where would the new e-jet be used when not flying BNE/SIN/BNE ? Maybe on BNE/ABX/BNE which seems to be one of Jetgo's best routes.

I think I read two flights a week to start with so that would be four days of the week taken care of. Although if the rumour above is true then two airframes coming.

I'm thinking an Albury to NZ (Auckland, Queenstown)service could be viable. Theres 200,000 people in the catchment area.

Apologies to all for the thread drift, but Jetgo have previously mentioned Canberra as a potential destination from Albury in their press releases.

SQ are soon to be end their 4x weekly CBR-WLG leg and the loads reported on this sector appear very suited to the E190. Whether they could operate the route reliably enough for the premium market developed by SQ is a different question!

So as a non pilot what is the limiting factor at YMAY? 1900 metres long.

E190s

Have JetGo's E190s shown up yet? When do they commence the BNE-KTA-SIN route?

What a great idea for JETGO - CBR-WLG. The biggest challenge would be getting the public servants to give up th QF FF perks. I'm not sure I'd take on that challenge.

I'm not sure that too many public servants get to keep FF points these days. As far as points go, though, they are a big selling point. JetGo could maybe code share with Qantas on some of their unique routes. Air North do it with their flights out of Toowoomba to Melbourne, Townsville, Cairns and probably Darwin too if in fact there is any demand for a flight from Toowoomba to Darwin via either CNS or TSV.

yes plenty of ATO employees in ABX & CBR & am sure they have to go back & forth for some reason. Being public servants Jetgo could charge almost whatever they wanted.

For CBR types Itís all about the status points not the FF points.

Fares are on " best fare of day" and then sent for approval to travel to upper levels.


Even with no competition on the route doesn't mean Govt punters will still pay it.

Well if VH-ZPH is one of them, it is still shown on the aircraft register as being registered to Virgin Australia as the operator.

Ah, what I meant was the Gov types are only eligible to accrue status points, not FF points. Although Iím of the understanding that pollies FF points are accrued but cannot be used until they leave office (happy to be corrected if this has changed in the last few years).

As for the Ďbest fare of the dayí, that doesnít seem to apply to everyone. Senior leaders (leading by example?) have ways around it so they maintain their Q Platinum status. Oh and then thereís the Chairmanís Lounge access...

According to someone above they are getting two ex VA airframes, one reported as being VH-ZPH.

Is the E2 market ready? Would be expensive.

It just received its FAA and EASA certification a few days ago.

E190

Those E190'S shown up for JetGo yet?

Anybody heard any ongoing plans for JetGo and the Singapore route or is the E190 expansion plan dead in the water.
