• Qatar Airways upgrades Perth to B777

    Aug 04, 2014, 09:21 PM

    Considering Qatar Airways has previously mentioned the B787-8 being used on this route, the upguage to B777-300ER (and still daily) must mean an increase in demand for the route. I'm now 50/50 whether the A350 will eventually be deployed on this route now. It would seem strange to reduce capcity,...

  • Yup, but that's Qantas for you in a nutshell.

  • I was referring to "The 20 jets used on international routes will also receive new economy seats (shown below), while the 10 planes assigned to Qantas Domestic will have their current economy seats refurbished.", which should be the other way round.

  • I'm not sure if I've missed something, but I thought Qantas only had 10 International A330's (the A330-300's), and 20 Domestic A330's (the A330-200's).

    Well, not exactly. Qantas' A380's have been in maitenance in Manila getting the wing rib's fixed up. They are now all done, and Qantas is deploying the extra capcity of the Summer on SYD-HKG and SYD-LAX.
