Cheers everyone for the update. It will be interesting to see how the leases run on the Jetstar birds and how/when/if they come back into service.

I can just imagine the cabin crew remotely dimming the windows "for your fellow passenger's comfort" on THAT flight

Jetstar B787-8 VH-VKI is on the move this morning, 30/3/21 but not to ASP. It is positioning to SYD as JQ7998 with a scheduled departure of 9:10 from MEL. This could be in readiness to operate some domestic services for Jetstar over the Easter period.

Pleasin to see if this is the case. Hopefully the current outbreak is resolved swiftly and the vaccination program also moves quickly so the likelihood of border impacting outbreaks is greatly reduced from its already low base.

With the UK having vaccinated 31Million people already, you wonder whether Australia will allow UK residents to visit earlier than those from the EU?
