• Good news. I hope Qantas and Qatar can do the same. 

  • Exactly and Qatar have only 2 A380s left in storage, which will be used for the DOH-PER. London uses 2, Paris uses 1, Bangkok uses 2 and Sydney uses 2, (Perth will now use 2), 1 is used as spare (All 10 will be active by December). The only way for Melbourne to come in the mix is for Qatar to fre...

  • Sydney won't get a 2x daily flight because Melbourne is going to get it. The flight that goes to Canberra went via Sydney pre-pandemic but they have agreed to go via Melbourne instead. So Sydney/Perth 1x daily A380, while Melbourne will be 2x daily 77W. Makes sense.

  • Not sure. Qatar added a second daily 77W flight to Melbourne from October 1, so i doubt they would get the A380. Seems like Perth has now overtaken Melbourne in the tourism industry. These A380s were flying to Melbourne pre-pandemic but seems very unlikely now.

  • This will be good for airlines to increase capacity. I saw a Singapore Air A380 leave storage in Alice Springs to Singapore via Sydney. Seems as though they are re-activating more and more A380s and we could even get more SQ A380s flying to Australia.

  • A380s back to Australia

    With Australia qualifying to Word Cup, it seems as though Qatar is increasing capacity on its Australian routes. Anyone know when Qatar might reinstate the A380 to other Australian cities like Melbourne, Perth or Brisbane? Sydney had the return of the A380 on June 1st.

    I'm not sure. I tried looking for a VA codshare flight from Melbourne to Sydney then on to Paris with Qatar Airways but seems as though the two airlines aren't selling them yet.

    Anyone know if Qatar will return the A380 on the Melbourne-Doha route anytime soon?

  • Q-Suites from MEL

    I flew QR904 Doha to Melbourne on 19th April this year and I was on the latest version of the 777. I was in economy class but the Q-Suite looked good in the business. I am hoping that Qatar can bring the A380 back to this route soon as I am flying late August to Paris.But you should definitely be...
