I'm aware the travel industry year begins on 1 April but it seems to me (at least in Australia) that CX have not yet released many fares for the 'next year'. Not very helpful when you're trying to book up and not very helpful for CX coffers either.
My travel agent tells me they are already losing pax who can't be bothered to wait for fares, especially J and F. Anyone have info on why they are so late, and when they may come out??

They've already released their net fares here in Germany (where 1 April has no relevance at all in the tourism industry), we're already selling them...
Is there any type of travel fair/trade show coming up in Australia? Some airlines like to release their fares at shows like that... and I've looked through Sabre, there, indeed, do not seem to be any reduced C/F fares loaded, though that also seems to be the case with QF (at least looking at SYD-LHR).
