Gidday mate... any ideas on OTP for Jetstar over the past month or so? There should be a distinct improvement by now...
hi Rodney, yeah JQs OTP has picked up heaps. I havent seen any official stats but from what I've seen I'd say most of their flights are now within 10-20mins of schedule, with the exception of JQ257/258 AKL-CHC-AKL at night which seems to routinely fall behind by upto 40 mins.
Of course they wouldnt want to include ZQN in their OTP stats due to the high number of flight cancelations due to weather!
Altough I do know of one occasion in the past few weeks where flights were close to 2hrs late!
