Of course, it could be that bookings were a bit light and QF have shifted pax onto the codeshared EK405 ,an A380 which departs about 90 minutes after the scheduled QF37.
Light loads are unusual to cancel a flight these days - crew still have to be paid min hours, crew hotel rooms, aircraft out of rotation, pax reacxompdation, GHA charges, brand damage. Domestic is a bit different of course.
Lucky they didn’t go ahead with PER-AKL, and PER-JNB this year in the end, with the 737 pilot issues would have left them very lean!! Wonder if they’d be interested in one or two second hand ones for some cheap lift atm?
