Well you got JAL after thirty years Brisbane got Air China after 30 years. So as you type there is hope for any airline, although JAL will return to BNE. So we have all won let's and not whinge and look forward to more services for the three east coast cities.

BNE was always going to be the next main market to gain China attention

The reality is that Sydney and Melbourne have had natural advantages (bigger cities, bigger Chinese populations, bigger business markets) which have helped bring attention for Chinese airlines. That evolves though as the general Australia-China market matures further, providing additional opportunities in other cities.

It is a great addition for BNE. No one is whinging

The big thing you missed which disadvantages BNE is students. QLD isn't that far behind VIC and NSW in total visitors but lags significantly in education visitors.



In terms of arrivals, students are only counted when they first 'arrive', travel back home while on a valid student visa is not counted in arrivals data however many students travel home at least twice a year (winter and summer holidays) leading to a far greater demand for aviation capacity that implied in arrivals data.

Clearly he meant to say Brisbane as being added as a second Aus destination, but I wonder if that slip of the tongue refers to Melbourne being added to their route network in the future. They are planning widebody expansion as A321neos takeover. Would love to see their new livery being taxied to a remote stand at MEL.

Interesting observation today:

JQ DPS-MEL due 6:40am 19/9 now scheduled 2:55am 20/9 from what I can tell.

That's certainly a long delay. Was there a major tech issue in recent days that contributed to this in the the 787 fleet?

That's a fairly big mistake to make by an airline CEO.. must have Melbourne on the brain

HA has done well in Brisbane I really don't see Melbourne being ignored by them. Cheap fares too for a full service airline, well at the moment.
