One of our most recent sims had us landing and departing CBR ( good diversion point for Adl,Mel, Syd), with a modern wide body there s no significant terrain issues. We carry engine out departures where required, it is no big deal. should be able navigate and route laterally within 200'.
Is there a hint in there zeke?

But where are all these people going to come from to fill these flights? What you are describing are almost ADL levels of service and that is a city with a million odd more people. Sure CBR would have some business traffic, but not enough to fill widebodies unfortunately.
Theres a 500K high average income population with CBR
as their primary gateway. I take you're point on Adelaide ( as I'm currently living here) However Adelaide is only now starting to realise what they should of had for a long time
10x Wk SQ
(the extra 3/wk is seasonal)
(from 01MAY) JQ
5x wk CX
5x wk NZ
5x wk VA/TT
4x wk MH
and really could be stronger still. I get that they are very different markets, but CBR
is almost like where ADL
was 10 years ago. an afterthought where most pax were funnelled through SYD
Ever since airlines have started committing to ADL
, the pax are supporting it.
I just think the same would happen in CBR
and like Adelaide, the first mover would be highly regarded (like SQ
are in ADL
as with CX
, they're quality carriers with large networks and prepared to commit)
VA would be in prime position to start challenging QF
's strong loyalty in CBR
both started services.
Anyway- I've harped on enough about this, thanks for all your comments
Lets get back to AA
news (we're prob due for a new thread)
