If it remains this low for much longer can see them pulling out of Christchurch and park up the A380 in Sydney for the day will be cheaper than flying the expensive tag on with very little revenue coming in. They can code share with Qantas on the route which could benefit both airlines.
Does this LF include through traffic though? I'm not sure it would. So 40% + traffic booked xxx-DXB-CHC. Approx 200 pax on SYD-CHC alone is pretty good
