QF 787 to Santiago International Airport

Qantas B787, starting June 2020. How about EDTO requirements?

LATAM do it now in a 787 so shouldn’t be a biggie I would have thought.

Same as all the other 787s (or similar) between Auckland and South America?

I'd be quite confident that the boys and girls in QF ops would have thought about this before making announcements I guess some on here like to use big lines to attract attention>>

I used to think like that but, when flying along the coast of Antartica, I realised that fire was a bigger threat than an engine failure. The B787 has almost twice the cargo fire suppression compared with the B747ER so, in some ways, it will be a safer operation. Also, the fuel doesnít get as cold in the B787 wings, due to the thermal properties of Carbon Fibre.

The announcement indicates a daily service so there wonít be any excessively long slips in SCL. CASA approval of 330 minutes is currently being processed and will be available before June 2020.

It also means there are not enough hulls to replace the B747 on JNB & HND routes - maybe there are more on order that we havenít been told about.

JNB and HND were to be the 380 however the Japanese have told Qantas it can’t go to Haneda. Nobody seems to know what plan B is.

So you are at 65south and the Cargo Fire Warning goes off. Where is the nearest runway?

Airbus, Boeing, 2 or 4 engines. Same applies!

So how many times in the last 20 years has a 4 engined aircraft lost two engines but been saved by the fact that itís a quad?

Maybe Rothera Air Facility here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/67...8.127389?hl=en

Enough room to get in, but not out?

Yep, land there on fire. Then a couple of hundred suffering hypothermia.

At least thereíd be a reasonable sized bonfire on the runway to keep everyone toasty. For a time.
