IMHO Freedon Air (SJ) wont be adding any new domestic flights shortly. The loads are so/so. These are the loads for today 22 July: (These are just some of the flights. I don't have data for all on them sorry)
It also appears that QF are giving them a good run for there money on the AKL/CHC and vv and AKL/WLG and vv flights as they are the same price, but QF offer full service with lounges/catering/frequent flyer points and better choice of flights.
It will be interesting to see how the QF WLG/CHC and vv 5 x daily DH8 will impact on SJ.

ZK NQC was leased for 4 million from Airworks, so I would expect it flying for freedom a bit....QF is far better equipt for the long run IMHO, they own their own aircraft,serve full meals, and have a pretty good reputation. They also happen to be flying aircraft that Airworks wasn't flying round as a cargo/postal aircraft up until it was leased off them.....I think NQC will be here at least until a 4th 733 omes into the fleet....I think 5W ILF is their latest addition in terms of 733s..
