• The ultimate plan is for a loop from Tallawong at the end of the NW metro, through to St Marys, on to WSA then finally linking up with the existing rail system again at Macarthur. There's also a plan for a second link direct to Westmead and Parramatta at some point - linking up with Metro West wh...

  • Perhaps the Qantas move a little while back to drop the Dubai stopover and resume Singapore for QF1/2 was a stroke of good fortune, given they've clearly decided to avoid Dubai this time.

  • I would have imagined that the PER-LHR service will have a little less demand once people from MEL and SYD can fly direct. My bet is that they'll stick with the 787 which seems to be doing a great job.

  • A Qantas fleet running A350-900, 1000 (+URL) and 1100 variants could be an interesting mix in the medium-long term.

  • Everything seemed to point to the A350, so good on Qantas for making that choice. It will be interesting to see what this does for Qantas' other fleet plans - could we see some A350-900s in Qantas' future as well?

    At the risk of resurrecting an old thread - I have the same issue on iPad - article reads fine but comments are displaced to the right off the screen and cant be read.

  • I think British Airways runs PE from Brisbane to London (via HK) as well. As GregXL mentioned you can go Cathay, with the option to go Virgin Atlantic from HK if you prefer

  • Qantas going down the Airbus route would mean they could pick up "regular" 350-900s or even 350-1000s as 747 replacements rather than waiting for the 777-x. The Dreamlines only carry 236 people and that might be a little too thin for some routes.

  • When you think about the Qantas experience with "ordering ahead" for the A380 and the 787, I can see why they'd go for a proven model (350ULR) third time around, rather than gamble on what the 777-X may or may not do, and any potential delivery delays.
