Re: Qantas plans 3 Project Sunrise research flights in Q4 2019 using 787-9's, final decision on PS by end of 2019

I am curious why they'd bother with Y at all on ULH. I don't even get the point of Y on PER-LHR. In my mind, these should be 3-class F/J/W. J probably pays for all the costs, and W/Y the profit. QF knows their market, they would have configured for their target market. It's the other way around. Y ...
