Question: Are JQ going to be phasing out their A330's and replace them with the new dreamliners on order? Will they operate alongside and open new routes?

JQ's recent international narrowbody expansion in PER had me thinking - could we see JQ take over the rest of QF's flights? (NRT, HKG, rest of SIN) if they flew the 330/787 on these routes? Even an expansion into new markets such as Thailand and Vietnam?

Thanks.

I would guess that Jetstar needs the B787 for their growth and therefore until a "critical mass" of B787's has been built up I would expect both B787 and A330 to operate together. Obviously the B787/A330 fleet would then be deployed to the best routes for their performance characterisitics.

There is currently a massive worldwide demand for B787/A330/A350/B772 sized aircraft and demand is currently above the supply. Therefore airlines with growth plans will take and keep any B787/A330/A350/B772 they can get their hands on.

Its better to have an aircraft to open a new route (even with a A330 instead of a B787) than to let your competitor do it for you!

The orginal "plan" was that JQ would return an A330 to QF for every B787 delivered. But it was always "subject to change" so what will actually happen is anyones guess.

In response to Ben175, the plan at this stage is that when the 4th B787 arrives, the 1st A330 returns to Qantas, when the 11th B787 arrives, the 2nd A330 will return, and then they're pretty much a one for one swap after that. Approximately 9 months after the last B787-800 arrives, the B787-900s start rolling into the fleet with each -800 rolling over to Qantas for each -900 delivered. By mid-late 2013 the rollover will be complete.

Sure, the first 15 x 787-8 aircraft are going to JQ.

Once the 787-9 is available, the first 15 are going to JQ, with all the 787-8s transferring to Qantas.

It's fairly unlikely that this would happen. You may see some JQ flights operating for the leisure market, but I don't see QF leaving an entire state capital to JQ. There would be enough of a market for both.

Thanks for the additional details there!



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

Are QF planning to operate both the 788 and 789 or are all the 789's for JQ and the 788's for QF?
