Re: Australian Aviation Thread - March 2019

With HND I imagine we will see something similar to the BNE-LAX route. Switch the current QF25/QF26 to a B789, and add SYD-TYO 3x weekly to closely match Y capacity (perhaps A330). Around that time we might see SYD-SCL (moved to daily) going to the B789 to operate SYD-SCL-SYD-HND-SYD which would cou...
