Yes. I saw this on ATW and Mr Sandilands over on Crikey had it up the other day. Will be interesting if they do it with one of their current A340's, go out and get a 777-200 or start the service via Asia with a 777-300. Then again, Turkish started talking about flying to Australia in 2009... so I'll wait until they have a firm start date before expecting to see a 'European' carrier back on Australian soil.

This has been rumoured for a while, but the ATW article wasn't conclusive and the timeframe is still 'sometime next year' if it comes off at all...
