The cargo that is currently subsidising poor passenger loads on this flight can be redirected via dedicated cargo flights at a much higher profit level. This flight was apparently all about the cargo before QF
started building up their dedicated cargo network -- I do agree that it would be good to see JFK
remain on the map for QF

If this is the case then what route would the 787 operate to/from LAX besides JFK? Would the entire SYD-:AX-JFK-LAX-SYD route be operated by a 787? It seems to me that you would want more capacity on the SYD-LAX and LAX-SYD legs.
(daily, with perhaps a direct BNE
to spread capacity) or the SYD
flight (with flights to SFO
/increased capacity to DFW
with the A380 or even JQ
services to the mainland).

I also hear that while loads are poor in Economy. First, Business and Cargo loads are quite healthy.
doesn't offer F LAX
anymore (since the A332 shift), all flights are now operated with reconfigured three class aircraft. I'd be interested to find out how W is performing...
It's all about the quality and standard of the service. QF
is keen to offer an international standard product all the way to JFK
, and AA
's new product will come a lot closer to providing that than what they fly today. If QF
makes more money connecting passengers onto AA
services without losing customers due to an inferior product, then WB vs NB
