• 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?

  • What's the chance Qantas will drop London and do New York only? SYD/BNE-JFK route just about matches the quoted range of the A350-1000 (MEL is a problem as it's quite a bit further), meaning by the time QF goes with a lower density cabin (as they do for their 787s) it should be doable with the st...

  • Every time I've flown SQ to Singapore, there have been quite a lot of Indians on board. In addition, when Indian friends and colleagues have flown back to India, the majority of the time it has been on SQ transiting in Changi. I would think at the very least it could support a single daily Qantas...

  • "I don't see many economy passengers going on this flight"Mind you - people said that about Perth-London too, and those flights are now almost always near-full, including in economy. I think there's more than enough people willing to slog it out in economy, especially if Joyce comes good on his p...

    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.
