So, these are the two frames needed for IAH>SYD. Cutting it close? Doesn't that start in 10 days?


971 is a sUA 789 and the IAH-SYD route is flown by sCO flight attendants. As mentioned, there's a bit of slack in the 789 fleet right now.

Any 767-300 to GRU will have the flight attendants lay over for 30+ and take the return the next day. You'll see these kinds o...
