Re: Qantas Fleet Thread 2018

That would explain why they haven't announced another route (existing) for the second frame that will be freed up from MEL-DXB-LHR Was the 380 reconfigure to occurs in FY19 or Calendar19? That’s going to be a significant period out of service for that too. Looking forward to hearing the new route r...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - January 2018

Honestly I dont think Qantas cares about delays. Theyre happy running a super tight, cost-efficient operation to the US despite constant delays because whose going to choose United over Qantas? Or American? Brand-wise you cant get any worse than the US big three. And VA cant match capacity/route cho...

Will qantas get the A350? Nobody knows! QF is seeking proposals from both Airbus & Boeing, AFAIK neither has been finalised let alone a decision made. Gemuser Althogh no decisions have been made, the 777x is the plane to beat. QF has been leaning towards it given its better economics. However a...

I agree with ben175 - something needs to be done about it because it means that QF16 (BNE) and QF94 (MEL) are continually also late... often by more than an hour. Hopefully once 787 services come online for MEL and BNE it will allow more flexibility. These days be very tough to get slots to line up...

It will be add on to TBIT. There is an excess of latin/low cost/international hub carriers flowing into TBIT making the new concourse necessary.

QF doesn't use the A380 on the JFK route because the BA terminal at JFK has no A380 gates. However I still agree there isn't enough demand for it. While the 789 is optimal for that route, QF can't do it with 4 frames if they want to serve CDG. The question is what eastbound route will they run. Is t...

I would say QF will balance PER-LAX between BNE and MEL. They will still want to retrain high yielding LHR pax from MEL. I think PER-BNE-LAX will be same plan also. Could the second batch of 4 manage PER-CDG-PER-LAX-JFK-LAX-BNE-PER? Or would that require 6 frames? If BNE-LAX occurs what's the likel...
