I am going to Australia next month and will be flying DJ within Australia. When I booked the tickets it did not say the a/c type. I know they fly the 73G, 738 and E170 but I wanted to know if there is a way to find out ahead of time which a/c is normally used for specific flights.
I will be on the following flights.
SYD-MEL-DJ830 on 1/5/08
MEL-SYD-DJ841 on 1/9/08
SYD-CNS-DJ391 on 1/9/08
CNS-BNE-DJ774 on 1/13/08
If anyone has any info, i would greatly appreciate it.

Quoting Aussie_ (Reply 2): There's no real way of working out whether they are -700s or -800s - they are used interchangeably
73Gs and 73Hs are specifically assigned to certain flights, and you can identify this quite easily via the VirginBlue website. HOWEVER, I have just checked the website and it looks like they're experiencing some problem as ALL flights EVERYWHERE are currently showing as 737-700s...! I will check back later.
Yes, sometimes due to scheduling and other requirements, you might find your aircraft substituted between 737-700 / 800, but generally speaking most flights remain as planned.

I was wondering this as well if there is a way to see which aircrafts were assigned to routes. This coming May (I know...I'm already booked on DJ flights for May 08) I'll be flying SYD-BNK and BNE-PPP. My assumption is that these are "thinner" routes and warrant a 73G.
