Qantas don't even fly to New York, it's a codeshare with AA!

They used to -- QF 107/108 went from JFK-SYD with a stop at LAX. Sorry they cut this -- I was hoping to avoid changing planes in LA, especially since they're making me do a 4 hour layover in LAX when I fly in three weeks.

Actually QF107/108 was SYD-LAX-JFK and yes LAX-JFK was QF equipment.

Anybody here who is still in denial about that fact that QF flies to JFK since Oct 99...I guess the Qantas website must be wrong  Wink/being sarcastic

It probably makes sense that they scrap this flight as stated above they can codeshare with AA.

I hate it when idiot's need to run their mouths off.

I flew in that Qantas 747 from LAX to JFK on June 25.

Get your facts straight!

If it IS true that the flight will no longer be, then that's too bad.

This past summer I flew JFK-SYD via LAX.

The leg JFK-LAX was a AA/QF codeshare on an AA 767. I got the chance to directly compare it to the Qantas 747 on the LAX-JFK leg coming back.

The Qantas service is lightyears ahead of AA's. And I LOVE AA!

He could have made a mistake, you know. No one's perfect, you're jumping to a conclusion (of him being an idiot) just like he did.

Anyways sad to see QF leave a US city, but as long as the AKL-DFW route is still go I'm a happy camper  Smile

The article also said something about QF "reducing" services to EZE, amongst other cities. What does this mean exactly-the eventual withdrawal of Qantas from the Argentine market?
