Hi!

Here is the first E190 for Alliance Airlines on its pre-delivery flight test



Any speculation as to the delivery route of this aircraft? (Just put BNE as a reference point)

I'd put a photo but I can't, here's a URL to help speculate.

SJO-SDM (San Diego)-HNL-(NAN-BNE, I'm assuming).

I think all the allocated seats to Qantas’ “Flight to Somewhere” are now all gone. Tried a dummy reservation 15 mins ago and all that was left was 3 Y seats. Just tried again now and it kept erroring.

Surely if it’s that popular they might put on more flights, or filled up an A332.

I’m not complaining too much as I’ll be at “The Rock” next week. However I have to do a BNE-ADL-ASP and then do a 6 hr bus ride to Uluru. At least the bus ride will give me time to see some more of the red centre.
Cheers,

Looks like it's in BNE already, although according to FR24 the HNL-BNE leg took almost 13 hours. Seems a bit long, no? I see it was cruising slower than the big twins - Qantas A330 HNL-SYD used to take around 10 hours, and our seems a longer flight.

Is it a Flightaware glitch, or did actually file for Hickam AFB (PHIK) rather than Honolulu Airport (PHNL)?

Looks like a flightaware glitch, seems to have flown in and out of PHNL.

So with the QLD state election now over and with the government not changing (like that was going to happen in the middle of a national crisis anyway) I really hope the QLD/NSW border can now reopen entirely. There is no election to fight now and the QLD tourism industry is sinking fast!

We need to get back to work Annastacia!

The next border review is in four weeks. Fingers crossed that they ease restrictions on Sydney (and maybe even VIC) then. If there is no spike in untraced cases in Sydney and Melbourne then I think they probably will.

I'll be surprised if it's within the next year 5 years, more likely 10. When they do, some other disaster will come up and it will get cancelled again.

Agree that it will likely be some time before the market is in a position to look at commencing this route. Given the track record of their announcement of ORD (2001 and 2020), likely best they don’t do it as it seems to be a less than great track record of success.

One thing is for sure, by the time they do start it, it will be a SYD-ORD service, as there will likely be fleet options that will make the trip both ways with a viable load.

That’s basically my thinking as well. If ORD ever gets launched it will be ex-SYD if Project Sunrise 2.0 ever sees the light of day. Certainly not within the next 5 years.

The Australia-US market is going to take a long time to recover, and just getting back to 3+ daily LAX, 2 daily SFO and daily DFW is going to take several years (note that for LAX and SFO I’m aggregating SYD/MEL/BNE)

The Australia - United States market has always been strong, they have already reduced enough capacity with the storage of the A380s, when they return they may make SYD / MEL / BNE-LAX daily every flight, SYD-SFO daily and SYD-DFW daily
