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?

Yes the press was wrong. SFO service was boosted to 5x weekly, not 8.

Can check out the QF pdf timetable.

However LAX itself has gotten even more service....

-3 additional flights weekly - between Sydney and Los Angeles from 19 June to 28 July 2007.

and just announced this week.
- two additional Brisbane-Los Angeles services each week from March 2008
- one additional Sydney-Los Angeles service each week from March 2008

Quoting Joemac547 (Thread starter):

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.
