Better safe than sorry...Exactly, and we as crew at Qantas take safety very very seriously!
A reason for the diversion would also be due to the Great Australian Bite.
Someone correct me if im wrong, but their is no diversion airport after Adelaide, so another three hours or so until PER
is reached and you are out over water.
All i can say is lets get rid of them. I could write a book on the problems i have encountered on them!!! Grrrr...

Not yet... The B743's will remain in the fleet until 2009...
Interesting you heard that. Last i heard 2 will be gone by the end of this year (They are staying this long so they can operate FCO
flights), leaving 2 to operate SYD
sectors. Pilots have been offered other positions i hear.
