The DC-9, was some old analogue swept thing flown by well paid pilots that enjoyed their jobs, seniority and career progression!

One would have thought the prime time to fly into Launceston or Hobart, was during the winter.
suprised they did not run a few flights a week Sunshine Coast to Launceston and or Hobart, April thru September.
both cities have much bigger populations than a lot of the secondary cities Bonza currently serve.

JQ increase their SYD-LST flights during the summer to around 3 per day. So, the peak season is the summer.

Makes it very difficult to spend money with this mob when the app doesn't work, frustrating.

Just one of the many quirks of their quirky business model.

And you're certainly not Robinson Crusoe regarding frustration with their app; it has an overall App Store rating of 2.1 (average rating of 1.4 over 30 reviews for the current month). Given that the app is both their only booking engine and payment portal, that doesn't augur well.

Pity their red eyes in the case of DRW to Queensland, also announced OOL-ISA is interesting.

To be fair they hate QF up there, and cheap seats will get snapped up by the ferals, even on the red eyes.

I wonder why? Looks as though she's been instrumental in getting Bonza where they are now which is in a good place.

Are they still getting more frames?
