JQ8 Landed in Melbourne Three Months Ago and has Never Left Since

JQ8 landed in Melbourne nearly 3 months ago and never left

I have been keeping an eye out for seats on Jetstar’s JQ7/8 between Melbourne and Singapore for the past couple of months. I know that its frequency has dropped to twice a week since sometime in 2018, operating only on Wednesday and Sunday.

However, that does not explain why I have been unable to find any seats on any class since December 2019. This flight would still show when one tries to book Melbourne-Singapore on any Sunday and Wednesday, but it would be showing as unavailable. I have tried to look out for seats in Dec 2019 up until June 2020. It just did not make any sense to me that every date would be showing as unavailable. Are they really doing that well? I doubt!

I had some free time today so I initiated a Live Chat with Jetstar. The agent was clueless too, she kept telling me that the flight is full. *Face palm*

Anyway, I have tried to look for this flight again, and it looks they have finally removed this flight!

However, Business Class appeared full, likely due to VIPs and media accompanying Dr. Ahmet Bolat, the Chairman of Turkish Airlines. The entire Business Class section was reserved for VIPs.
