G'Day All,

Recently flew MEL to MNL via SYD. In both directions the SYD/MNL flights were practically full, same for my colleague who flew a week either side of my trips. Had a chat with a FA on the return trip who said that this was not unusual - that they fly with at least 75% loads each time.

So - given the healthy state of loads (after the reintroduction of PR flights) - can anyone furnish details of yields? There has to be some reason why QF don't increase beyond 4times weekly with 767-300s.

I can't give you specifics on yield but this route has never been a high yielding service. The main passengers are VFR raffic and tourists, with very little high end traffic. The only time QF had more services was when PR closed down and they served the route daily with a mix of 74's (SP's and 300's). As soon as PR was back the services were once again scaled back.

Flew MNL-SYD and SYD-BNE-MNL in November last year. I'd say both flights were about 90% full, but it was definitely VFR traffic. Even in biz class, you can sort of tell that most pax did not pay full-fare. Manila has more consolidators than Hong Kong, Bangkok or Singapore with some of the cheapest C and Y Class fares in the world. QF has a highly competitive product on this route though, because the Filipino pax are fiercely loyal to PAL and they are the bread and butter of all airlines that fly to Manila.

Here's my trip report on the outbound flight for more info on the services:
