Just got off Qantas 26 (LAX-AKL-BNE) and after landing at AKL we were informed that there was a fuel leak in the #3 RB211.
They were able to fix it in AKL after a delay of 3 hours as they had the parts on hand.
Aircraft was VH-OJB.
Qantas is fantastic by the way. Trip report to come as soon as I'm back in LA.
Anyway the point of my question is that how would QF have spare parts there? Do they have a maintenance base @ AKL? Would they have had to collaborate with NZ?
