Any A330 crew heard anything about slipping in New York next year?

Sorry to dissapoint you QF guys but the latest over here in the growth side of the group is you lot will iron out all the bugs with RED Tail 330's before handing over to the players who can actually turn a decent profit.:eek:

Legacy boys paving the way for an orange brick road to come:ok:

That's somewhat questionable from what I have heard

Let's see how long this one lasts, ladies...:)

It seems to be a seasonal thing now, just like last winter with the A332 running AKL-LAX-AKL a few times a week, while during peak the 743 took over the run.

I wouldn't say it will be to long before JQ takes over AKL-LAX.

With Jetstar Enzed drivers up front of course...even cheaper than their Aussie counterparts! :eek:

Maybe some longer slips as I reckon the 744 will still be doing 3 or 4 per week.:ok:

The question could have been asked a little better so as to clear up the thread a bit I think you will find that the question that twiggs was asking referred to Cabin Crew slipping.

I sincerely doubt that the A330 tech crew or any tech crew would operate LAX/JFK/LAX ...I don't see the company giving the same to Cabin Crew.

My question is though, if they do operate the 330 on the AKL/LAX/AKL runs are they running out of 747's or are the loads that light....???

That would be the orange brick road built by labour from Aotearoa!

While we're joking about who's going to do what.Is Jetstarpilot telling us that the legacy boys are the only ones who can iron out the probs with the 330 and that's why the company is giving it to them at the start?:E:E:E

Like Tidbinbilla said ,take it easy ladies,it's only a joke.

Lobe I think you will find the A330 on an LAX/JFK/LAX exceeds duty hour limitations, hence the slip in NYC. I believe it would be an 18hr + day.
Word is it will be AKL based crew with QAL onboard managers doing these patterns.

You're on to it mate. Bourke St couldnt organise a tea party.


PS. It wont be the A330 they'll be using. It'll be something else that hasnt flown yet.:eek:

It's a wind up guys. Jetstarpilot is referring to the cabin crew. JFK is one of QF's premium routes. They won't be putting a LCC on it.

be an A332 doing AKL-LAX-JFK-return. Tech & cabin crew will slip in JFK. there will be an extra cabin crew member (9) on the Lax-JFK-Lax sector in case someone is going sick.The other reason is that since our orange brothers have taken over the flying in the land of the white cloud we have lost the majority of business class passengers.They moved accross by invitation from Air NZ with all their status & points. This of course now impacts on our Qf services on the tasman and to LAX.:ugh:

Although it is only early, the beer is gone and now for the Red, and some French Brie. This is more entertaining than watching bogans at a boat ramp.
