Re: Australian Aviation Thread - June 2019

I disagree...

Possible QF A321XLR routes:

*2x daily PER-SIN-PER replacing current daily A330
*Daily SYD-CGK-SYD replacing the 5x weekly A330
*DPS from SYD and MEL replacing A330/B73H
*New ADL-SIN-ADL route
*New BNE-DPS-BNE or perhaps BNE-MNL-BNE

The biggest gaps in the QF network:

ICN, TPE, PER-JNB, MEL-BKK, plus now with the Jet Aiways issues you can add BOM.

My guess is SYD-SFO-SYD for the next 787 deliveries, aircraft can be rotated with the existing MEL-SFO-MEL flights.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - March 2019

Joyce had stated that SIN-LHR-SIN will remain (hence the new F lounge) once the new direct SYD and MEL to LHR begin. So QF could be back up to 4x daily if the keep PER as well:

SYD-LHR-SYD
MEL-LHR-MEL
???-SIN-LHR-SIN-???
PER-LHR-PER

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - January 2019

With EK off the BKK route and TG already reduced SYD-BKK, if QF had any spare A330 capacity, replacing JQ on the MEL-BKK could work, similar to when QF replaced JQ on the MEL- NRT.

JQ could then increase SGN flying which seems to be performing well.

All A332 mod work including the refit of EBG will be done by the end of March 2019 so that should free up a spare aircraft.

Surely QF will retime the QF118 HKG-SYD to an AM departure rather than leaving the aircraft on the ground in HKG for 17hrs?

Whats the chances the new SYD-NAN-SYD will be an overnight flight using s B73H that would usually be on the ground? Leaving SYD at around 9pm back at 7am would work?

The international A330 schedule (excluding NZ) uses around 14 to 15 A330s a day with a bit of slack. So having 16 pure international A330s should cover all the existing flying.
