Quoting 6thfreedom (Reply 3): Quoting VHVXB (Reply 2):
They are looking at increasing flights to PER and MEL.
PER will increase from 5 to 7pw, most likely 364 seat B773.
MEL will increase from 12 to 14 pw, all B772ER ops.
BNE will have three turnarounds added (most likely B772), and perhaps 4pw via SYD inbound/direct outbound.
Not quite sure what TG will do with overnight service ex-SYD... without the BNE stop, flight will arrive 0300 - 0330... less than ideal for connections!
Just curious if they have added additional capacity for the month on Dec/Jan on SYD-BKK services... Iv noticed the 4 weekly has gone to a daily service... Unless what I witnessed was a delayed service...
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are tonight’s entertainment!

Quoting BP1 (Thread starter): Do they have any very unique routes that are under served by others and only benefiting TG?
They should fly to DUB. It is hugely under served in eastbound long haul flights. There is quite a large market of travel between Ireland and Australasia with currently only EY offering same airline service. I also believe that BKK is geographically advantaged for such a route because DUB's runway is limited for long haul flights to places like SIN and HKG, but BKK is just in the reach.
Also wondering whether or not TG will swap AKL's 346 for MXP's 772? Seems as if MXP needs more premium seats, while AKL needs more economy seats.
