Paris and Frankfurt like LHR are perfect for Perth, Adelaide and Canberra passengers

But if the 777/350 can do SYD/MEL-LHR, they can also fly to CDG/FRA which reduces you to PER/WA and maybe ADL pax, which is possibly less viable

I'd hope CASA allows QF to put 787s on SYD and PER-JNB with ETOPS330

I agree with need for Australia - India direct or at least Qf flying via Singapore then on to India with own aircraft.

One point to note with Honolulu is for flights onwards to non US destinations they keep you in gate lounge! So no lounges or sjopping etc. Flew to Canada via Honolulu years ago and all transit passengers stuck in gate lounge for over 2 hoiurs

Perth to Honolulu direct as a holiday destination for West Aussies. And Any East coast city direct to Seattle and also direct to Denver and/or Minneapolis St Paul.

I believe QF should at least look at
Daily service to YVR
SYD or BNE to LAS
MEL to DFW
BNE to DFW
SYD or BNE to YYZ (may not need to be daily)
SYD or MEL to ORD
SYD, MEL, BNE, ADL and PER to DXB to connect to EK flights in DXB
How are these for starters?

Qantas should think about expanding further into Europe:
Some seasonal or year-round routes which could work are:

Sydney/Perth - Frankfurt, Paris (depending on range capability of plane)
Melbourne - Rome, Athens (serving high Greek and Italian demand)
Also, USA:
Sydney - Chicago, New York (JFK) w/ possible stops in South America (Santiago, Buenos Aires) depending on range capability

Enough of Asian expansion, Qantas need to start focusing on ultra long-haul routes and addressing the fact that too many people have to stop in places such as Singapore, Dubai and Los Angeles in order to get Down-under, and give them the opportunity to fly direct (ordering the 787s was a good move, but they don't have enough range, Qantas need to commit to A350ULR and 777-8 soon). A350ULR seems like a good option, maybe confidence will be instilled in Qantas once Singapore start SIN-EWR again.

Does anyone know if Qantas is or will be monitoring these posts? Also, I believe they will have a wish list of their own, which would be based on locations where their bookings are taking the passengers. If Qantas are monitoring this post, can you please give us a clue, as we would rather you get the business rather than a foreign carrier.

Cairns - Singapore

SQ is really milking it with 5 Silkair flights a week (shortly going to 7). Flights always full and costs $1000 RT for 6.5 hours in a 737!!

But Asia is where the growth is... I'm all for expanding in Europe and North America, but ignoring Asia would be silly.

How about an alternative to both Singapore and Dubai?
What about reviving the old QF9 route Melbourne - Bombay - London of the late 80s? Tap into the fast growing indian economy and huge Indian population in Melbourne
KLM also flew 747-200 Melbourne Colombo Amsterdam although very heavily weight restrcicted in summer.

Another thought is Australia - LAX - LHR
Air NZ has established itself on LAx -LHR route as providing great service.
Very popular with American and European premium passengers. Why can't Qantas grab a share of this? US airlines dont provide much competition!
