We all know that the first A380 will be called Nancy Bird Walton. Does anyone know what the rest of the fleet will be called?
Will Dick Smith get a guernsey?

I think Derek that shows how little if ever you have flown QF since they don't have 'pursers' .....

But back to names how about...

'Our Dugong is better than their Dugong....even if theirs has showers'
or
'Darth's Folly'

Seriously though why not stick to QF tradition and name the aircraft after geograhical locations....

Botany Bay
Broome
Batemans Bay
etc....
How about 'Uluru'.... nah...sorry they'll probably have to pay an annual hefty fee for that one:E

Could you imagine that!

The only A380 in the fleet that doesnt work, parked near the fence for the press photographers with glossy hand out brochures full of spin doctored data, misleading statistics and unsubstantiated self aggrandisement.

Sitting forlorn in the flight deck would be a tech log without a single hour logged full of deferred defects - including the regulatory reform program, airspace.......ad nauseum.:yuk:

What about naming them after significant battles in Australia's history?

Gallipoli
The Somme
Tobruk
Long Tan
Cronulla

That just might stick as a nickname for them.:E

Give it to Jetstar and call it "Moe"--the town in Victoria not the champagne. :suspect::p

Buster...Nah those names illicit images of violence and death and that doesn't go with aircraft....We need scenes of tranquility so....

How about peaceful locations for passive resistance ...

Pentridge
Long Bay
or as long as we keep an eye on the kids we could call one....
The Tampa:E

Ooooh...I like the Pentridge...We could have Chopper class & down the back we'd call it "H" Division....

Well, there's always the:

The example has been set by Mrs Bird Walton to name them after famous aussie aviators of years gone by then perhaps Bobby Gibs and Brian "Blackjack" Walker should get a look in.

Southwest Airlines (USA) already has three B737 named Shamu.
