The Qantas article states that 'skippy' will join 'quokka' 'later in the year', (the 4th is due in FEB which is not really 'later in the year'). So I'm guessing the 4th won't be named skippy, but they just referenced skippy as it is the other oz fauna on the list of names to be used. Just my thoughts. HAPPT FLYING EVERONE :)

Thanks very much. Never heard of these Quokkas before. I really like the way they smile and their pink scarves.

The guy on the right of the picture isn't looking too impressed however. Though he has been allocated a business class seat. Probably found the economy seat too narrow :crowded:

Considering there are only three US airlines that can effectively make use of a frame like the 787...

And two of them are 787 customers.


And those 2 787 customers collectively fly 10% of the worldwide 787 fleet

AA 34 787's (20 x 788's and 14 x 789's)
UA 33 787's (12 x 788's and 21 789's)


Hard to believe AA has more 787s than UA. And UA doesn’t even bring them into ORD and EWR.

UA will be in front in the next day or so, they have already taken delivery of 1 789 this year and there is 1 more ready to be delivered. UA also has another 2 789's in final assembly while AA only has 1 in final assembly

It looks as if "in support of the UN" is painted on the back half (text in white, on blue background). There is other text in the white section towards the front but I'm not currently able to see it.
