Well if a 707 didn’t have the range to fly AKL-HNL then it makes sense, NAN/PPT were used by different airlines to, I see PA did NAN-SYD. So many variations to routes.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - June 2020

Maybe QF747 will be a series of domestic flights, as long as QF can get high loads and price the tickets so they don't lose money on this? I think they could find a lot of people would be happy to take one last 747 flight even if it was say SYD-MEL. Domestic borders aren’t open though. Yet at least.
