QR domestic connection SYD-CBR as BA codeshare

Thought it was worth mentioning that there is a BA codeshare being sold on QR 906 from SYD-CBR, connecting to BA15 from SIN (and LHR). What's significant about it, is that it is an international transfer at SYD, so no immigration, baggage pickup and customs clearance at SYD for those arriving on an international flight to connect to it, as all of that is carried out at CBR on arrival. It's a much easier and more pleasant connection than the queues through SYD customs and the long walk to the far end of the terminal to the QF domestic bag drop, security, then bus ride to the QF domestic terminal, before almost always flying on a turboprop Q400, with of course, access to the QF international lounges rather than the domestic ones.

It sounds/would be ground breaking for Australian internal international transiting..by not going domestic. Agree.The international to domestic transit process in Sydney is a nightmare..... Would very much like to hear from anyone who has experienced this international transfer at SYD?
