Skippy’s in the cockpit or the latest paintwork on the tail paint still wet and affecting rudder controls.

What a memory for the old girl

A skip that size would only need 8 hops to get to LAX.

No flights in Victoria. Not sure if it’s Covid or the usual Sydney centric bias. Who gives a #$%@ anyway? Qantas is nothing to Victorians.

Why would you want to go to that disease ridden shithole? It’s full of Victorians anyway!

Not even a symbolic stop to empty the toilets on the tarmac.

Go and choke on your Neil Perry designed in flight food.

You misery guts, if I was Qantas I'd put you on a no fly list. Qantas based in Sydney, Virgin in Brisbane. There's a reason no airline is based there, it's a shithole. Full of miserable pricks like you.

Qantas has #[email protected]#ed over Victoria for thirty plus years. Why should we care about it? It shut down its victorian maintenance and overhaul facilities, has no business presence here except for the terminal staff, dragged generations of Victorians to sydney against their will to board International flights until their monopoly became unsustainable and has done NOTHING’ for this state except leach money out of our pockets to support an overpriced Sydney operation.

‘’Let’s be quite clear. I have nothing against the staff. My argument is ECONOMIC. Qantas does not spread its business around the country and its international flight schedules (pre covid and pre open skies) penalized Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and perhaps West Australia as well. Sydney is not Australia’s gateway of choice. It is where Qantas dumped passengers after twenty hour flights. Anyone who does NOT live in Sydney has negative experiences of that Sydney “transit” stop.

What we want is direct international flights from all state capitals.Perhaps with B787s.

To put that another way, you can stick that other Sydney hub centric aircraft, the A380, up the CEO’s backside, if it will fit.

Sunfish, life is too short- let it go! Turn off PPRuNe and go do something fun.

Way to go hijacking another thread to carry on like a pork chop. You’re the epitome of an angry old man.

Yeah, you are right. I liked the B747 and the people who designed and built it. Nothing with that vibe still flying.

That must be why 25 years ago when I joined Qantas we operated SYD-MEL-SIN and then onto LHR and then SIN-MEL-SYD on the return! And then in the late ‘90s, operating MEL-NRT and MEL-HKG on the 767. Dragging people through SYD. Oh, wait!

Sunfish- grab a gin and tonic and watch Radar24 it's past Fiji now. It's climbed from FL350 to FL370 and sitting pretty.
It only has 7 hours left. May as well burn the midnight oil, all the way to LAX. It's the best thing TV.

Surprised the pilot brief wasn't to fly a pattern showing two men holding hands. Maybe it was but the pilots thought better of it.
