The latest AA (May p69) says that:

ATRs FVH/FVI/FVL/FVM/FVU/FVX

will be withdrawn from service by July

The previous page tells us nothing.

Infact if you look at the VA schedules it still displays ATR flights on QLD routes all the way to December.

Could it be that the remaining ATR's will cover the schedule due to higher utilisation? Hmmmmmm.

Also there's been a lot more e190/737 flying SYD-CBR-SYD for example which again would free up ATR's for use elsewhere in the network.

Higher utilisation seems to be the key, not unusual to see three ATRS doing nothing at BNE all day.

From what i've read elsewhere online the QLD ATR base will be closed but there's no time line attached to that information.

It's also quiet possible that alliance airlines will be positioned to assist with QLD flying but it's too early in the year for Virgin Australia's schedulers to know exactly what aircraft will be flying where?

I highly doubt VA will be ruthlessly cutting routes in QLD and cedeing it's network to others due to an aircraft reshuffle.

VA are going with Alliance for some of the QLD flying, sort of what like QF does with Cobham with the 717 operation. That's just having a few problems with the ACCC at the moment. BNE base is shutting down and if the ATR's continue up there, crew will just be sourced from other bases
