Except most LAX staff are being furloughed and the future of the hangar lease that run through 2037 is up in the air.
In the short run with really no flights, QF can't justify the staff, and longer term will a slimmed down airline - particularly one with maybe no A380s for which hangar was designed for, the need the LAX MRO facility is iffy.
There is currently no available space at ASP even if QF wanted it. ASP has applied to grow its available parking space but at the moment NZ and SQ have taken what is available.
