Meanwhile they are cutting back a vast number of country services ex Sydney due to a lack of pilots:

Quote:
In a statement to the media, Rex said services would be reduced on the following NSW routes until March 31, 2024.

Sydney-Albury
Sydney-Coffs Harbour
Sydney-Griffith
Sydney-Narrandera
Sydney-Orange
Sydney-Parkes
Sydney-Port Macquarie
Rex will also suspend services between Sydney and Armidale until March next year, and withdraw from the Cairns-Bamaga route in Far North Queensland.

Edit that. 9V-MGM will be number 11 technically with number 10 now coming from a company in the USA that fell through.

Rumours RQG is also due to leave at the end of the lease making them back to 10
