With two A380's on the ground there for around 15 hours every day, I would think that LAX was a logical place to do maintenance. But I guess logic isn't an attribute of a lot of posters on here.

It seems that a lot of Cobham pilots were hoping that Qantas would take the B717 operation in house. Since the announcement I have only heard expressions of disappointment, no excitement. There...

Why don't we just start with a feeder fix time given prior to take off. Why does an A380 that has been airborne in excess of 12 hours get a 15 minute delay into Melbourne. Or yesterday out of Sydney...

I have always thought that pilots have no idea outside of their little world. Comments on this thread just continue to re-enforce that view.

Maybe the B717 operation would be set up and operated the way the aircraft was designed rather than attempts to make it like a 146 and even worse, an Ansett 146.

QF8 probably has less diversions than the SP's used to have on the direct LAX-SYD. Certainly far less than the PANAM SP's.

Both pilots looking at the approach chart alt/dme scale. Who's flying the aircraft? Who's monitoring? Amasing how often airmanship is used as an excuse for ignorance.
