Any idea if there are any Qantas or QantasLink birds still in the 1986-2007 livery? I know there were still a few 717s and 737s a few years back The last mainline aircraft in the old-old scheme was VH-VYF which went direct from old-old-Roo to Silver Roo at TSV 21/02/18 - 09/03/2018 and thus never a...Jump to post

Do we know if QF has removed the Y seats to increase cargo volume by carrying freight in the cabin? If they have, it would explain why the A333 is preferred as it has a much bigger Y cabin compared with the 789. The seats remain.

With the B77W fleet to be reconfigured from 14F/56J/44W/183Y to 8F/76J/40W/130M they may well become too premium heavy/economy light for LHR-SIN-SYD and the A35K configuration of 56J/56W/219Y may be more suitable. Perhaps MEL charts are being loaded as an alternate to SYD.Jump to post
So it's a double first. The first 777 they decide to retire (aside from damaged frames) that happens to be the first they received. "It has flown for 20,663 cycles. In this time it has flown for an amazing 100,311 hours." That's an average of 4h51 per flight. That sounds abnormally short,...Jump to post

The BA layout across the cabin is exactly the same as the Etihad layout on their A380 and B787-9. The differerence is that the Etihad seats have additional space between the seats so that window & middle seat passengers have direct aisle access - which is precisely what BA are proposing for thei...Jump to post
