Great, now the only thing left for them to improve is their service. (at least be more consistant)

What about Jet Connect operating 734s to NZ as international flights?

So the A330 domestic experiment is over - seems that previous rumours about domestic turnarounds may have a grain of truth.

Given that the total A330 order is just 13 aircraft - how does this sit with the current deployment of B767-300s on the International routes? Will the B767s now deployed by Australian Airlines move to domestic service to be replaced?

Will this now need a shrinking of the intra-Pacific network? I can't see 13 aircraft serving: Wellington, Christchurch, Denpasar, Sabbah, Manila, Taipei, Hong Kong, Jakarta etc.

I asked this question tonight in another thread on this same topic that apparently has been deleted for some reason, so I'll ask it again here:

Where are the A332s most likely to fly internationally? Will they be upgraded to afford greater range? (Remember, as has been discussed ad nauseum here, that the A332s have de-rated range specs, according to Qantas' own Web site.)

My guess is they'll go trans-Tasman.

The A330's that have the bed in J will service no doubt the SIN,HKG,JKT routes at TYO if they have the range

THE A330's with no bed in J class will service probably the NZ market but that is pie in the sky until the NZ merger takes any further formation as QF will want the TAsman market to be a low cost market it is common knowledge that little or no profit is made from this market especially when it is only 450AUD for a return fare 290USD including taxes
