Good times to and from Bali. Hope this works out and does better than the new Shenzhen flights.
The flight will operate similar to the PHE flights, where it operates something like BNE-DPS-PHE-DPS-SYD, the first flight from both SYD and BNE arrive at DPS around 1430-1500 but dont depart until late evening so this would be good use of an aircraft that would typically sit on the ground. PHE flights operate on Saturday's so I would take it that this would be one day that this new seasonal flight doesnt operate on
Interesting! Didn't see that coming! I'm guessing this flight will be operated by the 738 from mainline?
Does VARA have the necessary requirements to operate international? I would have thought that the F100 would be a better size to operate PHE/DRW - DPS
