hey Greg, remember the routing was different this time it did not go from SJO to HNL in one day, took a day via Brownsville to Oakland, o/night, and then only to HNL next day so was able to leave HNL much earlier than usual.

Since the ferry crew is probably QQ they may have extra crew members onboard the SXI didn't use (ie: minimum). More crew and less crew rest breaks and faster ferry times.

Travellers can now take advantage of a direct connection between Adelaide and Townsville with Qantas’ new flights between the two cities launching today.

The airline’s first flight from Adelaide arrives in Townsville Airport this afternoon, marked with celebrations for customers at the gate at each airport.

QantasLink will operate three weekly return flights with Embraer E190 regional jet aircraft, delivering more than 550 seats on the route each week.

The E190s were introduced to QantasLink’s network in May as part of the airline’s new agreement with Alliance Airlines. With its size, range and economics, the 94-seat jet has opened up a number of new routes that wouldn’t have been viable with Qantas’ existing fleet, including three new routes from Townsville and four from Adelaide.

QantasLink CEO John Gissing said with no other airline currently operating between the two cities, the flights will save more than two hours in travel time on a round trip instead of flying via other cities.

“We know that Australians are eager to travel again, and these new flights open up a direct connection between Adelaide and Townsville just in time for the school holidays,” said Mr Gissing.

“Adelaide has been very popular with travellers over the past year with its culture, entertainment and as a gateway to Australia’s world-famous wine regions.

“These flights will help drive more visitors to Townsville which will help local businesses in their recovery from the impact of COVID.

“Our customers and frequent flyers will enjoy our premium service on these new flights, whether its complimentary food and drinks, baggage or access to lounges in Adelaide and Townsville.”

Qantas is currently offering sale fares on the route from $179 one way for travel between October 2021 and March 2022, available until Saturday 25 September, unless sold out prior.

The new route has been made possible with the support of Adelaide Airport, the South Australian Government and Queensland Airports Limited.
