Quoting LongHauler (Reply 2): It would be inappropriate to post general loads on a public site. However, I will say after checking loads for the next two weeks ... I would NOT want to be non-reving on that flight.
Yup basically its a matter of going down to LAX and taking QF or UA to SYD MEL or BNE (where ever your travels take you) I got excited when they made it a non-stop flight because it was always difficult getting on this flight. Now that its a non-stop on a 777 its no easier, in-fact I would go as far as to say its even worse.

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 4): But the advantage now is that if you do get on you don't have to worry about getting bumped at HNL.
Yea thats true, though for some reason I have always had an easy time going SYD-HNL-YVR (close calls but always got on) The big problem was YVR-HNL as it was always full, though the flights leaving HNL for SYD was usually pretty easy to get on. I guess they are just carrying more pax now as they are flying still two daily YVR-HNLs and now the 1 Daily 77L YVR-SYD. As much trouble it is for a con, it just means the airline is doing well!
