MEL-CHC Trans-Tasman Flights- January 2014

I’m booking travel between Melbourne, Australia (MEL) and Christchurch, New Zealand (CHC), for January of 2014, and find that both major airlines on that trans-Tasman route only have 1 direct flight each way daily. There is no equipment listed, so for all I know they could be running A332’s or B772’s on this route. But if they are running A320’s (JetStar subbing for QF), I’m amazed that there isn’t more demand on that route. I used to live in both of those cities and at that time of year (high tourist season) it wasn’t uncommon to see multiple 742 flights daily. Does anyone know if demand has dropped that much, or is it just too far out to have a fully developed schedule yet?

NZ and VA run double daily flights and JQ has a daily flight, all operated by A320 and 73H.

Wow, you're going back a few years with that! But I would expect supply to somewhat match demand, or else they'd have more services. Qantas has really cut back for flights across the Tasman. There were days when 747s and 767s were the norm for AKL-SYD/MEL/BNE but now all they operate are 73Hs.

Nope, that'd most likely be the fully developed schedule.

It's all about the destination AND the journey.
