Re: Australian Aviation Thread - June 2018

I did a few measurements of the 737 seats recently (I think the plane was James Strong -VH-XZP). The arm rests are about 4.5cm wide (1.7Inch), the gaps between the armrests are about 43cm (17inch) for the window and aisle and the middle seat was about 44.5cm (17.5 inch) wide.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - May 2018

Hi everyone, I just have a question, I figured that people here would know something about it. Since Qantas is now simplifying it's fleet. What will happen to the Airbus A380 fleet? Will Qantas order 777X or simply order more 787's and increase frequencies? Thanks in advance. There not getting rid ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - May 2018

It has to be noted that NZ still does not have any interlining out of CBR after October. I'm assuming that they are still negotiating with the Canberra airport on any possible flights.

Re: Qantas orders additional 787s, sets 747 retirement date

As they let one of the cheap options expire, I'd imagine there won't be another dreamliner order for a couple of years. I'm going to predict that as long as the a359ulr can take the around 300 pax and luggage to London, there will be no chance they will order the 777-8. Recent quotes in the media ab...

Re: Qantas orders additional 787s, sets 747 retirement date

With Qantas's 787 order, were the first 15 options (now all used up) at the bargain price? I've calculated the seats for the 11 747s that they had prior to the 787s and the 14 787s and there is a bit of a loss in capacity (some capacity might be added by extra a330 deployed internationally) Qantas w...

I'll assume they won't be copying Frontier. Too many bad memories :stirthepot:

Re: Qantas eyes 737MAX and future 797 for future domestic fleet

Having a big A321NEO backlog & infrastructure, I see little advantages of adding 737-10's to the Qantas fleet. Frankly there is nothing this aircraft can add, while the incoming A321s do in terms of range, payload, cargo, performance, engine choice, comfort and Jetstar fleet commonality. https:...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread Part 147

The number doesn't include transiting passengers from WLG to SIN. I'd imagine CBR-SIN would 80%+ with transiting passengers included.

Re: Virgin Australia reportedly facing “severe cash flow crisis” with “very limited options”

The ratio of leased to owned aircraft is very high. For an airline that is over 16 years old, they should have more owned aircraft as leasing is more expensive long term.

QR and SQ already operate the A350 to Australia.

Re: Unnamed Airline to introduce Super First Class on 777's in late 2017

EK most likely as SQ, QR and EY don't have any announced orders. The only other airline with a major 77w order is United and they are moving away from first class.
