hear hear!! Love this, although MEL-SIN-HEL is better than MEL-HKG-HEL. The 350 is an excellent quiet a/c.

in fact they could serve 12 Business class meals (with drinks + tea/coffee) on a 28 minute FTI CBR-SYD in those days!!!!!

'it's a short flight from Gold Coast to Sydney, but Ansett and TAA used to serve over 100 hot meals and hot drinks on flights a lot shorter, such as Melbourne to Launceston.'in fact they could serve 12 Business class meals (with drinks + tea/coffee) on a 28 minute FTI CBR-SYD in those days!!!!!

it would certainly be a shame to see the a/c retired widely as it is a superb a/c to fly on in terms of space, noise and comfort. Hopefully airlines will be financially and operationally capable to return the 380 in due course, but i agree, this will likely be in 2023

Yes but to achieve greater than break-even costs, QF still have to get a good load on a 380 to make it profitable, whereas the 787/350s are far more fuel efficient (i.e. to the order of 20%) AND require less pax to break even.
