• Just how long do they plan on keeping these planes?

  • RIP superjumbo: Airbus axes the A380

    I don't think the A380 was the right choice for QF, and it is reflected in why it deferred its order for the remaining 8 jets. It should have bought the 777-300ER from the start; if it had a fleet of 20-25 such jets, I imagine its network would now extend deeper into North America with multiple d...

  • The existing forward cargo hold on SIA's A350ULR is permanently blocked off to cargo in order to achieve the range the planes need. If QF ever wants a chance of flying SYD-LHR, it must do the same. A walk-up bar or cafe would literally be utilizing space that wouldn't otherwise be used.

  • Besides the fact that this is really horrible aircraft utilization, one other thing about this pic interests me. How come GIA was allowed to have its 77W depart LHR at close to 1am, when I thought LHR had a curfew of no flights past 11.30pm, and stories of plane-full passengers ready for deprartu...

  • I'm a QFF member based in Indonesia, and I want to use my some 28,000 QFF points one of these days. From the 'Where can I go?' page, it is advertised Sydney-Singapore in economy is 28k + 135AUD, but when trying to actually book the rate it seems impossible to get it, with most rates (even saver o...
