Broken Planes Suck

Canceled flight at 9 o'clock on a Friday night. We would have only been counting on the engines for the first 30 minutes of the flight.

Rant over :(

So I'm guessing an overnight in Melbourne? It's not ideal but there could be much worse cities to be stuck in. Gold Coast for example.

KVE,

They put us in the Mantra. It's not the Park Royal but it is fine. Only downside is it's off airport.

They upped the morning flight to a 737-800 which catered for 90% of the stranded passengers. The rest are going later or via Sydney. Our seat assignments slipped back to row 2.

If I was actually complaining about the airline, and not just ranting, I'd name them but these things happen. It wouldn't be hard to figure out who it was with the details I've mentioned.
