Just checked the app (had to uninstall and reinstall to get the booking function - no biggy).

Hopefully some better options out of AVV to MCY and return when they have some more a/c.

A Thursday flight to MCY, with a return on either Saturday morning or the following Tuesday morning means no long weekends on the Sunshine coast for us. No Sunday or even Monday return flight is not going to make them a popular option for the Melbourne and Geelong market, unless they have something out of Tullamarine which at this time they don't.

For now the only benefit is the major price drop the mainline carriers have taken. What was a $2800 return airfares for 4 in September is now down to $1600 with VA (out of YMMB of course) , whilst QF is a little over $2k for the same trip. Interesting QF only has one flight up and back on a Friday and Monday whilst VA has 5 and JQ has 2.

VH-UIK had the honor of performing Bonza's inaugural service.

Also the 1st domestic B737Max service in Australia.
