Hi,

We are lucky to get a Qantas flight to Copenhagen this Saturday,
fourth year in a row now for those cruise-charters from LHR.

Do you guys think we will have a chance to see Wunala Dreaming coming to CPH, so my question is: how often does Wunala fly to LHR?

I have seen some shots lately of that beautiful bird at LHR so I really hope it will finally visit CPH as well.
We have had a little bad luck since VH-OJF has appeared twice while we get the Formula One the first year those flights were operating.

Hope someone could give a little information about the chances  Smile

I think I read in the remarks of a shot that it was the 4th visit at LHR.
Not too often if that is correct.

I think it has only been to LHR four times in it's life? Someone may be able to correct me.

So going by that, the chances are quite low, I guess.

Cheers,

Justin  Big thumbs up

Problem is that Wunala is now a 747-400ER... When it was just a 747-400 it used to be fairly regular at LHR, but Qantas don't tend to schedule the -400ERs to LHR that often - they don't need the range that the ER offers on the European services but they do need so as not to be payload restricted on the Pacific, so the ERs tend to be scheduled on trans-Pacific ops. Wunala is therefore in LAX quite regularly!

Wunala was at LHR in December 2003, March 2004, twice in July 2004 and again last Sunday.

The reason that Wunala has been coming to LHR of late is that now has the new QF skybed installed. QF gaurantee that LHR flights will be operated by Skybed fitted aircraft, so to keep this promise -ER's are being used. At some stage it will have the seating config changed again and will go back to LAX runs, so until this happens it may seen quite a few more times at LHR.

Cheers
