Re: Qantas 787-9 Exceeding Expectations on Perth-London Route

I have an ULR question, not specifically QF. Do I remember an ULR flight that occasionally needed to be towed to the runway as the fuel burned taxiing would have put them short? My brain gets scrambled and I may be making up false memories, but at least I don’t try and pass it off as fact! That was...

Re: Edelweiss A340?

Let's find some answers :-) Just out of interest why has Edelweiss started operating the A340, as far as I'm aware not only is the A340 not economical, but it's also exactly the same as the A330 a type already operated by Edelweiss, so why not just get in more A330's than start operating the A340?

MSN 1722 is actually pretty strange as there is only one outstanding A330 for LH group which should be the one for EDW with EIS (Not delivery, sorry!) in spring 16.
