Just out of curiosity, how many of those are new aircraft orders? All of them? Or are many of them conversions of previous orders?

There an issue with one software driven system unique to the Max version of an aircraft that has sold thousands of copies. Settle down averyone. The Max will be fine.Jump to post
They do have seperate CEO’s, I’ll grant that. There was much work put into an seperate Operaters certificate also, but that was shelved. So from an opererational point of view, QF is one airline. Jetstar on the other hand is 4 different airlines and they are not reported separately. So I still find ...Jump to post
Agree that QF could use the aircraft on other routes, but are you implying that the former JQ routes would be dropped altogether? Yes they have the A321 coming online, but these can’t cover all of JQ’s routes given the distance of some. It wouldnt be the first time that QF has cut a loss making (or...Jump to post
VH-EBA/B/C/D were delivered to QF and transferred to JQ in 2005-6ish. All others, Except for the 4 -200’s that QF used for LAX and BOM (I can’t remember the Registrations) that are now in the QF fleet, were originally delivered directly to JQ.Jump to post
I think India has similar issues to China - the local airlines have far lower cost bases and are already familiar to the greater number of passengers. Possibly an option for Jetstar once it gets its 321neos which will free up 788s from some of their shorter routes. Which place exactly in Australia ...Jump to post
This morning an internal email from QF states that they have formalised an agreement with Airbus NOT to take the last 8 A380’s.
May be unrelated to the opinions in this thread, but the timing is interesting.
Terrific. Thank god we got that settled. Do we need a percentage of fuel burn delta vs a percentage of payload delta? Maybe that would satisfy somebody. I’ve given you the actual numbers to dispel the incorrect info given earlier in this thread. Make of the data what you will, but personally I could...Jump to post
There is No ESAD on the plan, but the Contingency fuel is 1.2. It’s 10% up to a maximum of 1.2, but that is considered to be burnt in the Min fuel required over destination. The actual Min required fuel is 95.1, but the “build up” to get them there with 70 minutes is 95.8. Final reserve is 1.9, with...Jump to post
For discussion. Tonight’s QF9 has a flight time of 16:54 with a flight fuel burn of exactly 91.0. Take off weight is 249.3/ 254.0, and it arrives with 4.5T of fuel. Carrying 210 POB so 26 empty seats all of which are in economy. Incidentally that arrival fuel gives the QF9 and Endurance over the des...Jump to post

Man, some on this site are frustrating. How is ensuring you abide by your contract being entitled. Do you give away your entitlements because someone else makes a mistake and you lose out. If that’s the case, go on you Dutch, but we know you wouldn’t . Anyway this is quite Simple. The Passengering c...Jump to post
A mayday should only be declared if the crew believe the aircraft will land with less than the Final Reserve fuel. for the sake of United and the crew, i hope that's what was showing on the gauges when they got to the gate. A mayday is a very serious thing to do. Let's not be flippant. According to ...Jump to post
The pilots definitely overnight in New York, but I believe that Cabin Crew may do a return.Jump to post
Why is it so difficult for some posters to spell Qantas correctly. It’s written in the link. Read it.Jump to post
Changes to QF services are loaded now. This should give them some breathing space in training 737 pilots. They haven’t been able to get ahead of the training curve due to many 737 pilots being retrained onto the A330 and 787, and limited Simulator and Training Staff. These changes won’t be permanent...Jump to post
QF is going to use the 747 on SYD-PER services, replacing an A330 which will in turn replace the 737 on PER-SIN but it will reduce to 1 per day. Looks like the 747 will also be going to Hawaii sooner than expected and the 787 will be used on BNE-MEL returns. 717’s will also get an increase, althoug...Jump to post

QF A330 economy seats are 17inches wide, the 787 is 17.2. My comments are about Qantas, as the comments at the bottom of the page refer. Show me your source.

What kind of “danger” would landing a 747 in Canberra create? They must be scared to death every time Qatar and Singair go in with there 777’s. What a bizarre response. These guys have created the rod for their own back. Government regulation of airports could be a great public service message. Gove...Jump to post
What an utter disgrace Perth Airport is. Protecting South African jobs at the expense of Australians. Without QF expansion in Perth it is very probable they will close the base, potentially costing WA hundreds if not thousands of jobs, and most probably their only direct link to Europe. I think they...Jump to post
In an internal email this morning, QF have confirmed they want to operate seasonal services PER-South Africa (doesn’t mention which city), and they want it to operate from Terminal 3. They are in discussions with Perth airport. Not sure Qantas does itselt any favours with seasonal services.. but go...Jump to post

Also remember that Operations would know in advance of any potential delay relating to the MEL-PER sector, a long way in advance. They can “roll” the crews sign on time, so in many instances (unless the flight has an extended ground delay in a Perth) the crews duty times would be no longer that orig...Jump to post

Sure EK. But why would QF install Pilot Crew rests to these aircraft, just so they could fly them to destinations they already do? I’d suggest it’s more involved than “the current international schedule”. QF wouldn’t spend the money. They are for use elsewhere, I’m just curious as to where you think.Jump to post
With Qantas finally confirming the reconfiguration of 6 (4 current domestic and the 2 international) A332's. What are your predictions for routes these aircraft will be used on?
