I most appreciate your enlightening comments but if QF are in anyway to move ahead they have to move to markets where they make money....The America,s is there saviour.I hope they do not F UP as 2 flights a day to LHR wont cut it.

The existing A380s can't do it, but the new deliveries will have the range to do it. EK has already taken delivery of these and have deployed them on DXB-LAX.
YOU ARE WRONG.I can tell you for a fact most all DFW/BNE flights are weight restricted 744,s and yes an A380 could do the same sector weight restriced and burn less fuel.
They are 744ERs.
Look i do no they are 744 er,s.... sorry about not adding er,s and the aditional fuel drm.You are on a tangent and are not reading whats posted.
Go prove your payload-range and fuel-burn claims.
You may have the time,but all stated is public knowledge and simple to work out even for you..But commercial flying experience means nothing to you.
If you're so sure of your claims, why don't you back them up or even argue in their defence? To quote Joschka Fischer, "I am not convinced."
I add that QF does weight restricted flights particulary during the northern hem summer.And could do the A380 DFW/BNE sector without 2AA easilly with less fuel burn.

Interesting. Whilst I agree that the America's is QF's 'saviour', I am not quite ready to give up on LHR yet.
Congrats. Good number of posts!
Agreed..And thankyou Hutch for you imput and also my new friend Watson.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
With Qantas cancelling some flights to London and moving some flights on other routes to smaller aircraft,where should they re-deploy the A380,s.
