LAX flights replaced by weight restricted A332s which are no comparison to the previously scheduled 787s. I expect to see UA increase BNE services in the future. QFs loss is U...

Re: Qantas A330-200 Transpacific

Would not be surprised if the older -200s end up with express freighters I believe there is an issUe with the older CityFlyer A332s in that they had a light weight floor which may preclude freighter conversion. These floors meant these planes were never able to have the original Skybed J class seat...

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

SYD-CPT gets mentioned now and then also as part of this project...however is this a real possibility? Also why necessary would this be that more different than SYD-JNB, which is actually a little bit longer than SYD-CPT, which would suggest that B789 could also do it, or is it too far south for ET...
