Australia, Austria - it's a subtle difference for some folk!

The article made me think what a great flight it would be if Australian Airlines had really ordered a 777 to fly SYD-SIN-MEL and MEL-KUL-SYD!

it must have been a typo lol, Australian Airlines doesn't exist anymore. they were eaten by QANTAS a few years back


Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it

Pretty sure they were up in NGO the other day. 20 flights a week to 4 cities in Japan. If they had actually bought the 777 it would be a great move. But when their 767s start getting old they will probably get shifted to some older Qantas A/C or would get the 787.

sorry, im not too on top of the australian aviation scene, Australian Airlines to me was the old Trans Australia Airlines that later became Australian Airlines before being eaten by Qantas, i stand corrected

With the risk of being wrong, I really think OS is the airline concerned by this order. It already uses three T7 and in Australia, no airlines already have three B777.

not the first time for Austria / Australia confusion - won't the the last either - there is an old ( but in IMHO very funny ) collection of questions which have supposedly been asked on the Australian Tourism Website - enjoy

I'd say it's more of a AP thing.. and of course that one person in Seattle who wrote it needs a geography lesson. The rest of us from Seattle are pretty smart . lol..

From the title of the post, it comes across as some sort of major sales feat. Like selling a freezer to an Eskimo. Its always nice to see a defunkt airline buy modern equip down under. Maybe Pan Am will also do the same  Wink

I too thought Australian was a thing of the past.

I can see the scene at Cairns airport now. Some lowly ramp rat scratching his head as he talks to a confused Boeing pilot hanging out the cockpit window of a brand new orche 777.

Did anyone catch that bit in "the Simpsons" Australia episode, where they showed parliament house with "Der Haus Von Austria" with a spelling edit of "Australia"? Funny - and I'm Australian.

ps. I know Austria is Osterreich in german.


I digress...
