A Qantas 747 left hundreds of travellers grounded in Rome last night 14/7/01 as it suffered hydraulic leaks. The aircraft was to operate the QF16 to Bangkok then to Sydney when the pilots found major hydraulic leaks. They informed the passengers there was an airconditioning problem. Passengers waited at the airport for 2 hours before Qantas made arrangements to get the passengers to hotels for the night. Repairs to the aircraft were made overnight.

Hey Ttt I don't see how it was Nalanji dreaming as I read in another of your posts that it departed Singapore on Sat 14th at 0030, so how did it get to Rome on the same day?
But yes it would have been a 743. There was a QF743 in Auckland today don't know the rego though.

Qantas does not typically operate the 200 series to Rome...there were major disruptions to services last Friday due to fog in Sydney....so, unless that had something to do with it, I would be extremely surprised if it was a 200...could be wrong, of course.
