Re: Australian Aviation Thread - June 2020

Qantas is considering moving some of its Airbus A380s into long-term storage in the Californian desert ahead of a possible early retirement for the superjumbos. My question is why not send them to Alice Springs. SQ has sent some 380 aircraft for storage and it would seem a lot less expensive until t...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

2 NokScoot 777-212ER (HS-XBC, 18 Y/O) & (HS-XBB, 19 Y/O) have arrived in Alice Springs. These are both SQ birds in a past life. Wonder if they will ever see the blue sky again. The Alice Springs is really filling up....

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

Alice Spring starting to look like a mini Changi Airport. 3 x 777, 4 x Scoot 320, and I see 3 x A388, these all 2-year old birds. More to come I wonder.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

I agree - but this is the new norm, last week is now history. What worked then may not work now and into the future. it's about survival and not maybe so much policy anymore.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

Could it be possible that Qantas and Singapore Airlines form a strategic partnership for codeshare/frequent flyers between Singapore/Australia? I know SQ is Star Alliance and QF is One World, but these are new times and I don’t think for survival they really care about what alliance they belong to, ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2020

How about this. Once upon a time, a bloke called Tony Fernandes started a very small LCC in Malaysia with one 733. Now Air Asia is everywhere throughout Asia. Fernandes is personally cashed up to the hilt (rumor is about +- 600 Mill), and has always loved his network in Australia. I bet you a pound ...

SQ sending some 777's along with 2 x Scoot 320's to Alice Springs for storage. 1 x 77W, 3 x 772's arrived so far - I wonder if the 772's will ever see active service again after this is all over

Simulator Training to increase?

I’m just wondering with the world’s Airlines grounding aircraft, and taking Qantas as an example, stopping its international network 100% soon. It means that all these Captains, First Officers, Second Offices will not be getting the hours they need. So will airlines now up the Simulator training so ...
