hopefully this hasn't been discussed yet (cause i'm actually just lazy right now and don't want to do a seach)...BUT...i was wondering...when Qantas starts receiving their A380's, part of their plans (from reading the other threads) is to put them on the SYD-LAX run.
from what i've read/heard, the TBIT is the only terminal being refurbished to handle the A380 (am i right?). and currently Qantas has their departing flights out of Term. 4 w/ AA.
Will Qantas switch back over to the TBIT for their arrival/departing flights or will they spend money to have Term 4 be A380 equipped? and if the latter is the case, is it Qantas' responsibility to pay for the upgrades or LAWA?
from the pictures i've seen in the database...this one caught my eye:

out of all the pix i've seen...Qantas is using only those particular gates. so pretty much, will Qantas move their gates over to the TBIT or switch w/ AA and use the end side of Term 4 on the circular part of the terminal where there will possibly be more room?
thanx for the help in advance!
