Quoting seabosdca (Reply 4): Not sure why anyone would want to go to Melbourne, let alone a 744 full of people...
Hey, now...I'll admit it's not Miami, but a plane full of passengers from Russia landing in a city with plenty of beaches, hotels and restaurants...oh and warm weather? I would see no complaints. There is even a neat little Russian store on the old main street.
I've been going there for years to visit family and although it's a quiet town, not to bad if that's what you're looking for. On my way there in a couple of weeks, would be great to see the 744 there along with the regular CRJ's and ...wait...the MD80 from Delta.

This UN flight is not a charter.
It is supposed to be not seasonal. And not configured for 500++ pax.
The winter season is over. We have a warm nice spring here.
Time for Greece islands, Southern Turkey, Cyprus and Adriatic sea resorts.
