I heard Network is in advanced talks for acquiring A318/9/20 for FIFO work to replace the Fokkers.
EBA time again? Just sign the deal and we promise, new metal on the way!

Hasn't Alan still got half the worlds supply of A320s on order for Jetstar? I suppose some of those might be looking for homes.

I doubt network will be getting a320s

Unless of course they are really old and really cheap. You can't justify having 100 million dollar aeroplanes sitting around for half a dozen flying hours a day.

Unless of course the plan is to work them doing something else.

If they were going to do that, why not just use an existing A320 operator with all systems in place?

This is probably why network won't get A320s.

It would seem that is what the JQ 787 business case is built on

Have to say it's quite disappointing that they've neglected the 747-8i even though there is still a market for the venerable jet.

To think that Qantas used to parade the 747-400 in all their old commercials and literature and now ignore the same plane that gave them so much success is very sad to see.

787

787 VH-VKJ (Jetstar) has been parked in an unusual location in Paine field the future of flight aviation center maybe its there for a presentation (Qantas future fleet) or more likely because its been at Boeing for nearly 5 months since roll out.

PS stop talking about wages on a forum for fleet speculation take it elsewhere, at least half us don't care what you make

So what happens to the interior, a complete refit?

I guess they could paint it white & red, that would save paying big money to the pilots.

The plans have changed - JQ are to keep their 11 (possibly 14 at a later date) B787-8's and will not be getting any B787-9's. Apparently, there is a flight length beyond which the LCC model doesn't work so the extra range of the B787-9 would be wasted in JQ service.

Max flight length is about 4 hours. The passengers have bought all the food, beer, iPads and blankets they are going to by then and just want to get off. Land, quick turnaround, fresh pax, sell some more. The orange wide body operation has never been a strictly LCC.

Significant changes coming for group flying plan, domestic and international. I can't see any more 787 for JQ.

Iron bar,

How good is your source on this info?.....Managers in both Q & J* are saying that J* will be getting their full complement of 788s.

(Disclaimer: I know, don't trust anything management tell you, but this is from both sides of the fence??)

The extra range of the 900 is wasted on JQ?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the 800 got US west coast range ability and similar size tanks?

The 900 or 800 what?

No such animal if you are talking about the B787. They have a -8 and a -9.

00. Insert customer number here. For Qantas it's 38.

So 787-938.

Boeing don't use customer codes on the B787 for some reason.

Yes, the B787-8 has great range (more than JQ will ever need) but the B787-9 has longer range as shown with UA's LAX-MEL operation.
