now that QF is flying non-stop on the SYD-BOM-SYD route with the A332 with the new Skybeds---i have heard that passengers have been very happy with the service.

Especially after having to avoid the darwin layovers on the westbound journey.

any info on pax loads, cargo loads, crew opinions of the flight, and the like regarding the new non-stop (well...no really new....b/c it used to be non-stop on the 743).

just curious, as i know there is quite a bit of traffic on this flight. i have also heard that there is quite a bit of full J traffic.

Im not able to answer any of your questions but I have one of my own, what would be the chances of QF adding SYD-BOM-Europe allowing them to enter smaller markets with the A330?

Looks like March was very healthy load wise..
inbound 85.5%, outbound 81.0%

Qantas is doing well in BOM with their non stops. On 3 occasions I was informed flights going on approx say 70-80% loads.

More than their non stops, their code share with Jet airways is more popular. The QF flight is particularly only for the O & D market. Jet Airways takes a lot of the Australian traffic on its flights via SIN.

I'd say slim. Any more European expansion will be done with Jetstar for the time being.

Are these the same ones being put on the A380, or just the normal Skybeds that are on the 333s and 744s?

The SkyBeds on the A332 that fly to BOM are the same as those on the 333's and the 744's and 744ER's (also this same type of A332 flies AKL-LAX etc...)

Glad to hear the flight is doing well. Has anyone on here actually taken the flight?

Any QF crews on this board, want to comment on their flight working this service?

A SYD-BOM-Europe would be appreciated by some (ie me) but I dont think it will happen until atleast 30 of the 787's have arrived

Have only taken the flight back when it was operated by a 743. Enjoyable flight!

I think those 787's will be put onto domestic duties to replace the then decrepid 767 fleet.

Thats probably why he said atleast 30, but yes there are close to 30 763s to replace first.

Yes but according to wiki (so not very reliable) they will have around 20 extra after the 767's are replaced. Leaving routes like SYD-BOM-LHR or BNE-SFO etc as routes that could become reality

Why not fly BA LHR-BOM and then QF BOM-SYD?



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Well it's a pity the flights do not connect otherwise it would be an option.

True... unless you wanted to spend some time in BOM to break the journey!

Yes - but that after the first 45 are delviered (JQ and QF) we are probably looking past 2013-2014. I would also think that perhaps by then those 787's may be replacing A330's
