This is bad news for those wanting to travel between LHR and MEL.
Not really. Their is plenty of london capacity will many carriers. OK
OK.... but he has spent a lot of time in Melbourne, ran Ansett from MEL
, and is returning to live in Melbourne.
As a side note.... from past experience I can tell you that the detail of what QF
plans to do is not revealed in its media release.
. Their is no mention of perth-london cancellations to cater for the increase from 4 to 7pw on mel-hkg-london.
Other changes that may occur..
may cancel the existing A330 QF83/88 MEL
service. Crazy, I know, as the midnight departure ex-MEL
06.10, but yep, it might be done.
The above A330 to de redeployed to SYD
, and operate the same time as the current QF29/30 service. ie. SYD
to feed into the new MEL
double daily to be timed to connect with the new timing of the LHR
And the one biggy that everyone has missed is that with the BA
suspension, Virgin Atlantic can take up the rights and add 7pw more to Australia. Wonder if it will be Sydney or MEL
, given that Virgin Blue has a massive domestic network in MEL
, and quite frankly, the single terminal makes connections so much easier than Sydney!
