"Originally Posted by dddale I think the end of the 747 has already been factored. They will hang on to the 747 until it's time to wave them off and not because of necessity, but because they are owned, fuel is not as expensive as it once was and they can flog them as much or as little as they wa..."
"Originally Posted by timothyshears For example, if the Melbourne QF29 service connected onto Paris from Hong Kong. As this aircraft seats around 270 passengers, the load is signifcantly smaller to such loads of an A380 or 747. Along with having a smaller passenger load, this aircraft would need ..."
"Originally Posted by Aussieflyer Have any of you actually flown in a premium cabin on ANY American based airline. Sorry - QF might fail on occasion, but their service is amazing compared to any American airline. I now choose QF over SQ (mainly because of their horrid new A350 Business seats), an..."

"Thank you all for your comments, much appreciated!I gave a call to their head office who were able to arrange a complimentary Meet and Greet service to aid my mother so the matter is resolved (hopefully)."
"Hi All!I would like to get some information about SIA's assistance services. My mother will be travelling overseas by herself and would like to get assistance from check-in at Brisbane all the way to picking up luggage at the destination (Colombo) as well as for the return trip (English is not he..."
"[QUOTE=19536;45549]I don't disagree with much of what you say, however could QF work to become the oneworld carrier out of Singapore? CX is oneworld out of HKG and MH out of KUL. Does the Oneworld alliance want to hand all Singapore traffic to Star, or muck in and compete for business? BA only se..."
""Yes many of these routes are what Qantas had when Singapore was the big Qantas hub in 90s. It worked then so why not now!"1. Singapore airlines has better connectivity in Singapore with more capacity and frequency to the routes.2. Low cost carriers are eating away at short haul/medium routes. P..."
"QF First Class is not bad. It's good. But it pales in comparison to the offerings of the other carriers like SQ, EK and EY. Arguably because QF has a monopoly on most of its A380 routes for First Class and doesn't see the need to invest a heck of a lot more money to install new suites."
"As far as QF is concerned, Singapore is a stop-measure hub for flights to London which they hope will soon turn non-stop from the eastern coast if they can get the right aircraft. QF cannot compete with the frequency and feeder traffic that SQ and other carriers can garner through their hubs,&nbs..."
"One of the advantages of the A359ULR is its ability to reconfigure the fuel tanks. Should airlines like SQ and QF find the ultra-long range routes unprofitable, they are able to quickly reconfigure the tanks to less weight and range, providing more flexibility to serve shorter range markets.
