Hello ETA Unknown
Your figure about the seats wirthdrawn from sale on the LAX-MEL sector seems to be rather optimist. I did some research work for an article about Qantas' 747-400s to be published on my website, and the the information I got was that restrictions were more in the 100-150 seats range. There's probably a winter/summer calculation difference here.
BTW, you had told you me you'd contact me via e-mail on the NWA/Australia story almost a year ago. I'm still waiting...
