"If I interpret the other comments correctly, it seems that the flight is being perated by a 787, as an interim measure possibly while they wait for additional 787s so that new routes can be added. I flew on a similar 787 flight MEL-PER last year and was able to select a premium economy seat on m..."
"The 787-3 was to have been a 787-8 with a reduced wingspan and using blended winglets rather than raked wingtips. The reduced wingspan was targeted at gates that were used for 757 and 767s. As an alternative to A330s on the triangle routes, the 787-3 would have been less effective than the 787-..."
"Djtech, I don’t think high yield on one A380 a day to LHR is a sufficient justification for the fleet of 12. Retaining aircraft doesn’t prove that buying them was a good decision. It would appear that they are of no value as used aircraft, so replacing them would be a large cost t..."
"I think it is midnight GMT, so 8am Perth. In the past this varied with Intermaional flights, but I haven’t checked recently. As per Patrick’s suggestion I would try testing around that time."
"Originally Posted by rtaviation Hi Hakkinen5, all of Singapore Airlines’ older aircraft, namely the A330 and B777-200 are due for a renewal in the next year or so. The B772 is especially old, some are approaching 16 years old! SQ plan to replace these older aircraft with the Boeing 787-10..."
"Originally Posted by Johnny9 What happens to VH-OJS now? Is she retiring for good or used ex-SYD? Has flown BNE-SYD today. I guess they will retire OJS or OJU next, but with the peak travel period starting it might not be immediately."
"ADL-SIN is around the claimed range of a 737-800, which probably means it is not quite in range when requirements for alternate airports are considered. When QF or JQ have something with more range than their current single aisle aircraft, but not as large as an A330, they may add ADL-SIN to the..."
"QF have operated A330-200 aircraft on Auckland to LA, which is further then Hong Kong - Paris. It could be done but plenty of reasons given above why QF could make better margins on other routes."
"The your request is noted response is worth nothing. I don’t believe the release of one of the seats you desire, due to another passenger changing flights, would trigger a review of your allocation.If the exit row seats in PE are taken, it is also likely that it is a high status FF, so an..."
"You can see where the 2 non refurbished A332s are being used by looking on TheQantasSource jet tracker page. They are VH-EBL and VH-EBG. SYD-BKK appears a few days in a month. I didn’t see any SYD-SIN or BNE to anywhere in Asia. The good news is that refurbishments are planned for both the..."
