QF 7879 routes

With only eight QF 789s in the first order, and both PER-LHR and MEL-LAX announced, there should be enough left over for another route or two to be announced? Definitely sufficient for one more daily if it's Asia with quick turnaround, but what else?

Routes

The Pilots union negotiators had to sign a confidentiality agreement before the EBA for the 787 was signed.
The EA document specified potential routes including many in Asia.

With only 236 seats and a greater proportion of Business seats than normal, it will go where there is a well established premium market or the prospect thereof.

Hopefully something bold like ORD.

Wherever it is, lets hope the company just gets on with it.

Too much talk, talk, talk from the campus and not enough action!

South Africa does already have PER-JNB with SAA. However, it's possible that QF are thinking of PER-CPT, as it's likely that aircraft will be based at PER.

Yes, and having an international terminal on the domestic side of Perth airport will assist the commuters when they set up the 787 base. That way a Perth based, (east coast domiciled) crew can pax to Perth and simply hang around the terminal (1,2,3 hours) before operating out to LHR/CPT or wherever.

How would that fit in with duty limits? I'm not QF but my lot have recently cracked down on commuters perceived to be not adequately rested prior to a duty. The lawyers are getting restless.

I've heard this rumour getting around lately that Qantas won't allow crew to commute to a potential PER 787 base. I can certainly see the logic in preventing people from paxing over before operating a ULR duty. However there is nothing in the EBA that allows them to block someone from taking a promotion based on where the plan on living and there is no way AIPA would agree to such a stipulation.

You may find the new FRMS will make it extremely difficult to commute then operate on the same day.

So they might be able to enforce some sort of control over the commuters.
