Had another look at this James, MEL-SFO is 4 days a week - on 1,4,5,7.
The three BNE-SFO flights are proposed to be 1,3,5 - so only adding one new day to the SYD-SFO swap possibilities, plus providing 2 swap days between MEL & BNE.

The schedulers are ringing the changes in SFO at the moment with swaps on the last three available days.

Peter, the MEL-SFO-MEL flights will change operating days to Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat from the second week in February, 2020 when the BNE-SFO-BNE flights commence operating on Tue, Thu, Sun. This will then give QANTAS the ability to swap 787-9s in SFO on a daily basis.
