A while ago I read a posting here regarding LAX's "aging" TBIT. The posting was discussing a LA Times article on the subject. In the article I remember it stating that QANTAS is moving "8 flights a week from LAX to SFO". I recall how a.net members said this was in error and that in fact QF was moving 2 flights a week to increase SFO to 5 / wk.
I suppose that the LA Times simply got it wrong. Seems like an obvious error that simply was not caught by the general purpose press.
However, now I read in this month's Airports of the World the same thing. Come on, It seems to me that a publication THAT SPECIALIZES IN THE INDUSTRY should get it right. Or Have I been wrong all along and QF is increasing to 8x/week from SFO? Is the press that cavalier with the facts when it comes to aviation - even if it is an aviation specific publication?

They absolutely should. This sounds like a case of journalistic laziness. Airports of the World probably just ran a story from the AP or Reuters that the LA Times had carried - and that story was the factually-incorrect one to begin with.
