AC uses different aircraft for each of their Australia flights:
77Ls to SYD, 789s to MEL and 788s to BNE. YVR-AKL will also be on a 788.
Perhaps SYD-YVR on QF will become year-round with the next round of deliveries.
Does anyone know how MEL-YVR is going. It had been at 4 weekly for a while now. Is this due to a shortage of aircraft at AC?
Re QF and YVR. I am skeptical about seeing this go to year round. QF are increasing capacity to the US and, while not the same market, adding YVR year round would take passengers away from their US flights who would be connecting onward to Canada.
I think YVR-MEL was only 3 weekly and only recently increased to 4 weekly. AC is one of those airlines impacted by the Max groundings and I have been reading they have had to shuffle their entire network to accommodate for this. Even their long haul fleet has had to shuffle around to compensate for the grounding.
