According to AirlinerRoute, as of 28th Mar 2010:

Bandar Seri Begawan – Auckland becomes all non-stop service, no longer route via Brisbane on selected days. Service reduce from Daily to 5 weekly
Bandar Seri Begawan – Brisbane reduce from Daily to 6 weekly
Bandar Seri Begawan – Perth Boeing 767-300 replace Airbus A320, 5 weekly


So I'm assuming no more BNE - AKL flights? I checked the booking engine on bruneiair.com, shows no flights between BNE - AKL.

The link is here http://airlineroute.net/2010/01/11/bi-oznz-s10/

Thanks for the update Fauzi!  Smile

Another one bites the dust.. I remember the days when the likes of Garuda Indonesia and Thai Airways were also flying the route.

I understand Brisbane - Bandar Seri Begawan is 6x weekly, with no Monday departure, yet Bandar Seri Begawan - Brisbane is daily, so in the overall scheme of things, it's not a massive change/decline fortunately.

I am sure our Kiwi friends will appreciate nonstop AKL/BWN services.

Any word on the 777-300ERs?

Cheers

Excellent news! Wasn't the BNE - AKL leg timed at some ridiculous hour in the middle of the night? I wonder how many people actually flew BI on that leg.

It does seem a bit strange how they can manage to make AKL work but not SYD :. Am I missing something?

I'd say cheap fares and less competion makes them viable.

So to my understanding, since PER will get the B763 and no longer the A320, where will the A320 go? Are they going to fill up the regional routes B763 used to serve?

Nope, no news on the B773s so far.

Yeah. Reason why no SYD yet, is because they couldn't get additional slots from the Australian authorities to make the route viable.

Current rumour doing the rounds is Jet Airways has decided to not lease out the 3 777's.

RBA SYD-BWN flights were a disaster from the start with connections to only low-yielding Asian destinations. In order for SYD to work they need a decent LHR connection.

PER being upgraded to a 763 was only a matter of time- cargo was usually full on those flights when operated by 763.

Looking at statistics from BITRE Australia, between July till October 2009 the average pax load on BNE - AKL was hovering around 69%, while AKL - BNE was around 60%. But I am guessing the main factor here was amount of freight carried, since BWN to PER/BNE had an average of 70% on both legs, but freight were significantly higher.

Anyone can confirm this?

These figures under state the load factor, possibly considerably, as they only cover Australian uplift, they don't count pax from AKL to BWI or vice versa.

Scheduled departure from BNE at 21:45, which at this time of year means an arrival into AKL about 03:45. That arrival time is worse than DJ's tasman flights ex BNE. But in saying that, the AKL-BNE timings ex AKL look quite decent - 12:40 arrival into BNE so that equates to a depature time of roughly 11:30. That matches some flights from NZ, QF and EK - don't have to get out of bed too early.

Anyone knows where I can get the new BI schedule? The website only shows the schedule up to 27th March.

The changes will be for better utilization of their aircraft. It doesn't make sense to send a 77W through Australia to New Zealand - especially if they want to tap into the 1 stop European market from down this way.

Yes, when I missed my NZ flight from BNE last time I paid even less on the spot to fly BI at the last minute. At least it got me to AKL on that day. Now I would have to wait a day.
