The end of the Kangaroo Route was expected, I'm surprised though Qantas didn't put the 787 on MEL-LHR directly, axing the stopover point.Jump to post
Will the 789 take any sort of payload restrictions on this route? Or will it be able to fly a full load of pax both ways? Block time is only 10 minutes longer UA SFO-SIN so that implies similar fuel loads required. Depending on time of the year and winds, UA sometimes flies with no blocked seats, a...Jump to post
I'm surprised nobody mentioned the fares: Fares will start from $2270 for a return economy fare, $4250 for premium economy and $9725 for business class, though Qantas said sale fares would likely be less than $2000. http://www.traveller.com.au/qantas-perth-to-london-nonstop-flights-on-sale-prices-fr...Jump to post

MSN 144 OZ #3 emerged from fuselage join.
But the A350 has fewer Business and no First class seats. You really need an A35K to fully replace the A346, an A359 is a down- or right-sizing movement. Lufthansa is moving away from First Class. They even announced that the 777-9 will not get the First Class product. Hence the A350-900 can replac...Jump to post
That is exactly my 1st thought when I saw the header. If so, that would leave UA with 15 to go. Everything is possible, though in most deferral situations production slots are axed/swapped without the need to reduce the entire order. United's first 2 slots have been canceled, while the next 3 have ...Jump to post
