Re: DFW Foreign Carrier Estimated September 2017 Loads

One might wonder why doesn't LH upgauge their metal to a, let's say, A340-600 or 747-400 since loads are so good They did at one time use an A340-600 on the route. When did this occur? Been a DFW local for a while, but never heard of this. LH has never put an A346 on DFW-FRA. Now the A346 that went...

QF numbers are again strong. I remember a comment by QF's Alan Joyce recently where he said that the cost of 2x789s was cheaper on a per trip basis than an A380. This makes me think that perhaps QF will go double daily 789s' in the future as opposed to using the A380. Daily 789 ex SYD 4pw 789 ex ME...
