Have been on several MEL-CBR flights and they have been near full, must be a Sydney thing...

At least they are making the right decisions now and not running the route at a loss for a long period of time.

I see the Samoa 737 (now 2-WTFL) is currently en route to MPL, is this where the C Check will be performed?

The two main problems with SYD-CBR are that:
(a) to a far greater extent than MEL-CBR, the competition isn't only other airlines but also the train, the coach (Murrays in particular) and private car; and
(b) a significant portion of SYD-CBR traffic is connecting.

Rex behaved on the SYD-CBR route as though they knew the train and the bus were just as much their competition as Qantas and VA/Link - price-wise, I mean - but VA seemed able to fairly closely match them.

I think Rex's main problems were the lack of connecting options over SYD and not being part of either QFF or Velocity.

I'd like to know what Delta thinks of all these network changes Rex is making - especially the SYD-CBR route.

I think they figure the slots are better utilised than SYD-CBR also. Lack of slots is a common problem these days which is restricting expansion for airlines like LINK.

SYD-CBR is also "seasonal" with more traffic when Parliament is sitting.
