Based on my recent experience, they would be sorely needed on the SYD/MEL/BNE triangle, as well.

I think a fleet of 10 is only a start, and there will be quite a few more soon enough.

I reckon the slow turn around time make them less than ideal on the 90 min sectors. At least they only take up one Code C gate, unlike 330s.

The impact of the larger size is somewhat reduced, though, by using both the forward and rear doors for boarding.

true, but a -10 will take longer than a -8 or a -800, and there goes the schedule.

Is it really going to take a full 60min extra as opposed to a B73H to turn around though? I can foresee maybe 50min turns, but I doubt it would even take that long...

No, probably not an hour. The A330 takes 80 min. But anything more than 35 min would throw out the cadence of 1:25 flight, 35 min turn and another flight two hours after the first.

From the latest Airliner World

THE VIRGIN Australia Group is converting ten of its commitments for the Boeing 737 MAX into firm orders for the largest member of the family, the 737 MAX 10. The Brisbane-based airline has 40 aircraft on order since signing the original contract for the
type in July 2012.

Geoff Smith, Virgin Australia Group's chief financial officer said in a statement: “We are
pleased to be welcoming the 737 MAX 10 into our expanding fleet in 2022. The introduction of this variant will provide us with additional flexibility and capability to support our network and operations. We are proud to become Australia’s first
operator of the 737 MAX and look forward to the opportunities that operating this type of aircraft will open for us.”
