• FYI: SYD-BNE-ORD is around a 250km shorter journey than SYD-AKL-ORD.

  • Qantas has previously announced that 787 maintenance will be done in LAX, so the aircraft still need to rotate through that port.

    For those wondering, I suspect that the 6 hour wait in SIN for an all-A380 MEL-SIN-LHR connection will remain, as if it were moved to the later MEL-SIN flight the A380 would not make it back to MEL the next morning in time to perform MEL-LAX (keeping in mind that SIN and LAX are the only QF A380 ...

    July is school holidays, so the seasonal deployment of QF95/96 makes sense.At a guess, the aircraft could be funding maintenance during the other periods.

  • The oldest 777 in Air NZ's fleet is 12 years old. Incremental aircraft (if any) will be more 787s, while replacement of anything is a good 8-10+ years away.
