What I'd like to see happen with the QF fleet is: - JQ replacing all B788 routes with A321XLR (except HNL - perhaps move to QF). - JQ's B788 move to QF. - QF refit the B787 fleet (with PE), similar to what AC has (B788 J20/C21/Y214 - B789 J30/C21/Y247) for consistency across international. - The no...Jump to post

Speaking of CTS, anyone know what a QF A333 (QPE) was doing there on 11 Nov? Flew SYD-HND as the usual scheduled QF25 (10 Nov.), then QF6002 HND-CTS and QF302 CTS-SYD on 11 Nov. Edit: Must have been a charter of some kind. VH-QPC did the opposite routing on 05 Nov (QF301 SYD-CTS, QF6001 CTS-HND, QF2...Jump to post
Mine isn't strictly a 'connection', but is surprisingly another Bremen (home airport at the time) story! I had originally booked a flight from BRE-FRA-PVG with LH. However a few weeks before this flight, I found out I needed to go to New York and Boston. So rather than rebooking the BRE-PVG flight, ...Jump to post
The worst part about the baggage footage is that those idiots won’t be the ones copping abuse from passengers regarding broken bags - the Qantas baggage services staff on the frontline will be. Are the baggage service desks still handled by QF directly? I was under the impression they were Swisspor...Jump to post

I have to say that the B707 was pretty iconic as it opened a lot of possibilities for airlines around the world. Eg, it allowed QF to fly non-stop across the Pacific. However, current commercial aircraft, the B747 gets a special mention for it's unique capabilities that it brought to the industry, a...Jump to post

Not sure if it was mentioned in earlier threads, as I have been travelling and only sporadically following a.net. But a recent TK investor update reaffirmed SYD as being on their to-do list. Along with many other destinations, so may not mean a lot. https://investor.turkishairlines.com/documents/pr...Jump to post

Speaking of Narita, I noticed that the pre-COVID A380 flights, for the most part, didn't line up with the NA bank. It makes me wonder what connecting traffic these flights were trying to capture.

Just a quick note on the domestic flights. JL and NH only offer a drink service on all domestic flights for economy (and class J - JL) regardless of duration. Meals are only given in their respective first classes.Jump to post
I think I may have heard from somewhere that the SFO-NRT route on DL was one of their worst performing routes on TPAC. It was operated with a 767-300ER if I’m aware.

Not sure it would work as they don't have the Alamo in San Francisco. LMAO -- Right! But you know what!? They could build a new Alamo between SFO and SJC, then build a new airport right next to it so everyone could hub there. It's the best idea in the world! I can't believe it hasn't happened yet. ...Jump to post

I assume this means the end of its career as a pax-carrying A330 and it'll get converted at DRS.
No, because you will be an economy passenger. Not true. You'll not become an economy passengers, just because there are no real business class seats. In Europe, most airlines have a "Euro Business" on their short and medium haul fleet, meaning economy seats, but more legroom and the seat ...Jump to post
It serves as a lower cost (than TK mainline) airline for the Asian side of Istanbul with a hub at SAW covering major cities in Turkey, the Mid. East and Europe. AJA is much like HV as is to AF/KL I believe. Operating the local European/domestic network in order to feed TK for international long haul...Jump to post
For QF, do away with their newer economy meal service (no meal tray). Everything sits loosely on the table and slides off easily, so I'd bring back the meal trays for economy. If I could go back in time, QF would order the B777-300ER to replace the B747 fleet.Jump to post
Darwin has a route to Denpasar and Singapore though. This doesn't justify anything. Do you realise how difficult it was to get a DRW-SIN service, even seasonally? Not even Jetstar could keep it around. And by your theory, because DRW has a DPS and SIN route, BME (Broome) could be considered for 6E ...Jump to post
Being an LCC, travellers don't really care about the times as much as they do about the cost. Not all travellers want to spend an extra 15 hrs in Istanbul, and don't want to spend/have the money to either. PC also operates as a hub and spoke airline, so those times are the most convenient for their ...Jump to post
They may go into some of the major European centres like FRA, PAR or LON, but nothing more. And considering it's an LCC with only economy seating, even those are doubtful. They have a pretty good codeshare agreement with TK, allowing wide European coverage. IIRC, they are currently at 2x daily to IS...Jump to post

Highly unlikely. They've downsized a lot (even pre-covid) and are mostly focused on the Asia Pacific region now. They still have a few flights to the Mid.

United has most destinations. They need to add more countries to their route map I think you need to familiarize yourself with traffic rights.

No. ANA didn't even want them actually. They only took them because Skymark didn't (forget what the condition was). Before ANA for the A380, I was talking with a woman who was part of ANA's A380 intro-into-fleet team. She said NRT-HNL would be the only regularly scheduled A380 route in ANA's network.Jump to post
