Let the pre-decision speculation begin (again)!
|Quoting Kiwiandrew (Reply 4):|
I confidently predict that QF will abandon all longhaul routes having decided after 75 years that enough is enough . Instead they will be the (re-)launch order for REKKOF ordering 100 Rekkof/Fokker 100s (because it seemed like a good idea to order 100 of something called the 100) to give them unrivalled frequency on the SYD-MEL sector with shuttle flights departing at 5 minute intervals in both directions.
|Quoting ClassicLover (Reply 1):|
It has firm orders for 10 international aircraft and 10 options?! What? Does that mean that as part of the QF order, 10 + 20 of whatever aircraft type is ordered is for Jetstar, guaranteed?
|Quoting Keesje (Reply 8):|
& they'll start early 2007. So no 787's or A350's. Perhaps 767-400ER's, they can do 10 hour flights.
|Quoting Ken777 (Reply 12):|
If you look at the short term for JQ, what planes have been parked that would take care of JQ until the 787/350s could be delivered?
|Quoting UALMMFlyer (Reply 10):|
I, for one, would go nuts....
|Quoting NorCal (Reply 15):|
how many A330s are available on the used market?
|Quoting Scbriml (Reply 17):|
Scientifically, I think it would be described as "a number approaching zero."
|Quoting NorCal (Reply 20):|
If that is the case then how many could Airbus deliver them in time for the 2007 launch of Jetstar?
|Quoting Gemuser (Reply 22):|
Its just gone 8:00 am here. If there is no announcement within 2 hours, ie before 10:00am (which is very, very, very unlikley) then the earliest it could be is 4:30pm, more likley 5:00pm. So sorry guys its at least 9 hours away and maybe 26 hours away.
|Quoting Dalecary (Reply 23):|
Geoff Dixon has been quoted many times in the last week as saying they hope to finalise the fleet plans at today's extraordinary board meeting with possible public announcement on Thursday. So, I won't be holding my breath for an announcement today.
|Quoting UALMMFlyer (Reply 10):|
What happens if the decision is too close to call, and Qantas delay the decision further?
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 46):|
I would, but I have a feeling I will find out here before I am approved.
|Quoting UALMMFlyer (Reply 39):|
think the A330 will be an excellent choice for JQ considering neither the 787 or A350 will be available based on the timing of JQ's international rollout. A330 is an outstanding aircraft based on the operating history of CX, TG, KA and others on routes within Asia. I am, however, not too sure about A350.... too little information.
