I don't see a 787-10 order anytime soon as firstly they ordered a bunch of A321XLRs, which does a similar job but will be better on thinner routes (which qantas seemed to be more focused on since the dreamliner came into service) and the other fact that they have only accepted 787s from Everett whi...Jump to post

A couple of observations at SYD this afternoon (Thursday): 1. A QF 744 is docked at T3 preparing to operate a domestic sector. I'm assuming this is make a bit of extra cash as it positions to MEL (as has happened a few times of late). So my question is what is the international sector is it due to ...Jump to post

I have information from another source that, either in addition to or in spite of (not sure which) the info on The Qantas Source, ZNB had a pressurisation issue due to a faulty cargo door seal.

It is unrelated to the weather events over the past day or so. The inbound QF16 arriving in BNE was a 744 and by the looks of it, it came at the expense of a QF55/56 rotation. The 789 that became available operated a QF94/93 rotation. A388's VH-OQB has been on the ground at LAX since Thursday, so p...Jump to post

This seems to have either been missed or not announced, Scoot has increased PER to 9 weekly as of this week Certainly interesting considering they went to a split schedule between the 788 and 789.

Not sure if this all these have been posted before but there are some aircraft swaps on various Qantas USA services in November: QF55 BNE-LAX operated by 744 on 12/11, 14/11, 17/11, 19/11, 21/11, 26/11 and 28/11 QF56 LAX-BNE operated by 744 on 12/11, 15/11, 17/11, 19/11, 24/11, 26/11 and 29/11 QF55/...Jump to post
Wednesday's QF50 SFO-MEL (VH-ZNC) didnt leave SFO and is now scheduled to depart at 2000 local on Thursday as QF50D, nearly 22 hours behind schedule. As a result QF9 today has been cancelled.

There appears to be an issue with VH-ZNF in London. QF10 (2SEP) has not left LHR yet. QF website is showing current expected arrival in PER of 0630 on Tuesday and todays QF10 PER-MEL as cancelled.
ZND is flying QF485 MEL-PER now. This afternoons QF9 MEL-PER is still scheduled to be operated by A330.
VH-ZNF has been put into service as QF634 MEL-BNE tonight. Both OJU and OJT are at LAX today, as there was no QF16. My guess is one of them will be withdrawn today Both lived to fly another day! OJT returned as Mondays QF16 (but is now headed back to LAX) and OJU is on the way to Sydney as Tuesdays ...Jump to post
Sad for the queen, even if not today then soon. I flew on VH-OJT in the spring of 2014 LAX-BNE - and what a fine ride it was. I agree.

ZNE will operate its first international revenue service this afternoon as QF9 to PER/LHR.

Is this the first schedule disruption/substitution to QF 9/10? As far as other types filling in, yes I believe it is. No cancellations and no services have been more than an hour or two late so far.

VH-VZB (737-838) is operating the MEL-PER leg of QF9 today. Looks as though -ZNA will turn around at PER and return to LHR tonight.
It appears -ZNC may be u/s in Melbourne as QF400 (which she was scheduled to operate) was cancelled this morning. Can anyone confirm?
I recall Qantas let a 787 option expire, then they exercise these 6 options. How many more options do they have and what are the expiration dates? They had 15 Options and 30 Purchase Rights, so they have exercised 14 of those options which should leave 1 more plus the 30 rights. Qantas originally h...Jump to post
