Hrm, the spin I got on it was that it was kinda pushed by the Aus govt. We already have domestic sky marshalls and to Singapore (I thought also to
more SE Asian nations, but maybe not yet). The marshalls would largely be on Qantas flights, protecting the Flag Carrier like.
EDIT: also it doesn't seem to be as much a 'random' choice of flights as choosing flights that are considered a possible threat.
