QF and CX both still do. In QF's case I believe it's for international only - there are heaps of domestic flights on which they provide hot meals but usually without a choice of options. QF usually offer a choice of two on longer domestic flights (like PER-SYD) CX gave me two options on PER-HKG &am...Jump to post

In Australia my last name is virtually unique to my family. Theres about 500 people with my last name in New England and Ireland and considering my first name, Angus, is moderately uncommon I would say there's less than 5-10 people worldwide with my full name. I wouldn't count on ever running into o...Jump to post

I completely agree with the article. Minor aviation incidents are usually a ripe target for a slow news day as it not an industry the general population knows a lot about and considering the number of variables like weather, landing slots and fuel prices, delays and minor inconveniences are almost i...Jump to post
There's Skippers Aviation & Cobham here in Perth, and if you include subsidaries there's also Network Aviation (which operates aircraft on behalf of QantasLink). These airlines entire business stratergy relies on shuffling FIFO workers between Perth & the various mines elswhere in West Austr...Jump to post
Earphones, Phone (prefferably offline, but for music, time etc.), GoPro (or any camera) to record takeoff/landing, bottled water or juice and a bag of chips.
If flight is 6+ hours i'll bring a change of shirt, toothbrush, blanket and a pillow.
It’s not the range that is an issue, apparently he aircraft aren’t equipped with life rafts (?) or some other equipment required for extended overwater flights (crossing the Bass Straight does not require an overwater equipped aircraft). Correct - the B717 is only approved (at type certificate leve...Jump to post
I would love QF to be a little more interesting across the tasman. Beat NZ to the punch and operate CBR-AKL. Bring back ADL-AKL and go year round to PER. ADL/CBR/PER-AKL seem like obvious choices, maybe something a bit more ambitious like SYD-ROT/DUD & HBA-AKL. I also wonder if there's ever bee...Jump to post
I have never booked an entire trip for a unique aircraft but I have adjusted a couple flights when given the oppourtity.
In 2016 I spent a little more to fly SQ (over Scoot) between HKG-SIN to log my first a380 and last year I took a slightly earlier flight between SYD-CBR to log a QF 717.
Melbourne has MEL, MEB and depending on how you define the city, AVV.Jump to post
With QF constantly expanding to the US i'd be curious to know if 787 flights between ADL-LAX running 3x a week or so on a MEL-ADL-LAX type rotation could be viable, I doubt it would be given priority over the SYD/BNE-ORD plans at the moment but it'd be interesting to know if management has considere...Jump to post
QF9 closing in on Perth. Any idea how full the Perth Airport outdoor observation deck is at the moment/predicted to be? Might just go and see it.Jump to post
The PER-SIN and SYD-DPS flights are only ever operated by -VZZ and XZA thru to J....not sure what differences -XZL thru to -XZP have and why these never operate these longer International services. Any takers?? If I recall correctly XZP was used for the inaugural QF71/72 flight back in 2015. I also...Jump to post
717 & F100 , they're becoming more and more rare around the world but becoming increasingly more prevalent where I live, which gives them a more unique feel.Jump to post
AA's Oneworld chrome 777 looked unfinished IMO
Which any airline could do, and many do do, if rather more discreetly. LOL. Allegiant simply cuts out the middle person. Flight Centre, for example, does huge deals to the right tourist destinations. It was Flight Centre that ultimately pulled the plug on the late Air Australia And these days, Alle...Jump to post

What other retros are still around ? Is the Aer Lingus A320 and Lufthansa A321 still retro painted ? 9M-MXA of Malaysian Airlines & PK-GFN of Garuda Indonesia in Asia.

QantasLink will add two Airbus A320 aircraft to its fleet. These aircraft will be transferred from Jetstar Australia to QantasLink from March 2018, however in the future they will be sourced from the Jetstar Asia order.
