Re: Qantas/Airbus to launch Project Sunrise and firm narrowbody order tomorrow (2 May 22)

I get SYD-JFK, but whatvdemsnd would there be for a nonstop MEL-JFK flight? I could see MEL-LHR. I also expect way more than 12 frames if CDG is also included…as LHR and JFK will require at least 8 frames by themselves and MEL unless done twice weekly would also require another 4. (SYD-DFW could go...

Re: Qantas/Airbus to launch Project Sunrise and firm narrowbody order tomorrow (2 May 22)

Doesn't offer a lot that the A35K wouldn't, QF's strategy involves more point to point flights and fewer stopovers. The A35K offers full flexibility for any route QF wants to do. Wouldn’t the 777-9 be perfect for QF’s slot-constrained SYD hub? Sydney isn’t Heathrow. There are plenty of slots availa...

Re: Qantas/Airbus to launch Project Sunrise and firm narrowbody order tomorrow (2 May 22)

Yes, QF seems to have reverted to the B744 capacity class as it is now the right size. B777-9 would not be a good fit because QF has to invest a lot into the infrastructure as they have never operated any 777s before. With the A350-1000 already on board, it would be logical to just add a few more. ...

Why add 779s when you could just add more A350s? QF doesn't have to go for large, what they want to do is offer as many direct flights from Australian cities as possible, meaning fewer stops in MEL and SYD. For that, the A35K and 787 will be beneficial. Yes, looks like Qantas are taking 12 options ...

Think Qantas will eventually exercise those 12 options that also replace their A380 fleet.
