Now it is baggage issues for 'Sunrise'

Seems the Rat can't win a trick. Bit of a hit for the 'premium Service'

If you are going to receive an apology from your airline, which would you prefer?

(a) Sorry we can't operate direct today so we will have to make a tech call.
or
(b) We decided twelve hours ago to leave all the bags behind and not tell you until now.

It's not like Darwin Airport just woke up and printed NOTAM for runway length reduction. These things are years in the planning and consultation.

Head of something probably on holidays like the head of every other department at the moment. Begs the question who is actually running the joint at the moment?

normally yes, but not in this case. Has been in the NOTAMs for a few days due damage. DRW also unseasonally hot and humid. Knock ‘em downs in force the other night,Well late.

Far more money in freight, than PAX baggage.

They probably deserve a well paid holiday,after all 200 of them had to get out on the front line over easter to load all those bags they went everywhere except where they were supposed to.

Both.
Sorry we can't bring you all to London today with your luggage.
You can decide to stay onboard, we will try to bring your luggage but no guarantee
You can decide to stay onground, if needed, with a refund or options to fly later.
(If you absolutely need some small thing from your luggage you can take it)
This is a one time decision.

If too many people decide to stay onground, available spaces (pax+luggage) will be given in economical order (highest paying passengers first)

All bags have now been re-accommodated on later flights
By off loading bags meant to be on those flights.

Are operational issues at Darwin the reason why the change back to Perth has moved forward? McGowan announced it on his Facebook (the fount of all knowledge in WA).

If I was told my bags weren’t going with me, I’d elect to get off and wait for another flight,
Most airlines wouldn’t offer that because a lot of people would get off…. and that would cause a delay!
So let’s not tell them….!!

Reminds me of CX and their 350 out of EWR. Certain days of the week they would have to truck some of the luggage to JFK for the 777 to carry. Poor old pax had not been informed and then had to wait a few hours for the 777 to arrive. At least it was only a few hours and not days.

Think it through a little harder.

(A) This service is at the very limit of crew duty times. If they tech stop then the crew are going to be out of hours. They will get off and the pax will be stranded half way across the planet for 24 hours.

(B) You have to tell 200 people that their bags won’t make it on (because of Darwin Airport’s potholed runway), there is nothing they can do about it but get angry and you are about to supply them with booze for 16 hours. Now would you tell them at the start or the end of the flight? I know what I’d choose. Finding out 12 hours earlier won’t let you buy a new outfit when your at 36,000 feet.

Many Ozzies love using phrases they know international audiences wouldn’t understand precisely for that fact alone.

What happened with the rule that pax baggage could not remain on a flight if the pax was offloaded?

Incorrect. Last week it was announced mid flight mate. No one knew anything about runway works and a displaced threshold until it was too late. No NOTAMS. Nothing of the the impending works. Another joke, another stuff up from Darwin Airports. I’m glad to see the back of the joint.
