Question Brisbane - Melbourne Qantas pax load

hello everybody,

May be not the right place to ask this but I really need some help.

I work for a oneworld airline so I my travel partner get 'standby' concessional tickets from qantas to fly from Brisbane to Melbourne.

Could anyone who often travel in this route give me an idea about the passenger load ? is it almost always fully packed or there are some empty seats ? ( I intend to travel in June, which is considered as a non-peak month).

You could look here, but frankly, I wouldn't bother, the loads are so variable, you will behind all QF staff, and subload staff fares are expensive. I've been doing this ( as UK Oneworld staff )for many years in OZ, and about 8 years ago gave up, because of not getting on and all the hassle involved. I now buy full fare on QF/DJ/JQ. On the right flights, it's barely more costly.

If you have a date in mind I can let you know how it looks at the moment. I always get on. But then again I aim for flights that look good.

I can't help directly as I have never flown Melbourne to Brisbane on Qantas, but I have flown Sydney to Melbourne many times on QF. Sydney and Melbourne are similar-sized cities, and the frequencies and aircraft types used on both routes are very similar, so my guess is that both routes would have very similar load factors.

Normally, SYD-BNE flights are quite full, around 90% or higher load factor. But it's rare for a flight to be 100% occupied. So with a little luck, your standby ticket should be OK. Flights are hourly, so you wouldn't have to wait too long for another chance if your initial flight is full.
