Ditto the remarks on the A330.
The planned flying is supposed to increase substantially on that aircraft this year.

Ok.
KC 30.
Get another hull.
Configure it with a VIP section between doors one and two.
Dedicate that A/C to VIP duties.
That keeps everyone happy. The media and all the hangers on can be...

Lurks,
I agree.
The PM needs something to fly around domestically, regionally with.
G550 may fit the bill.
My argument with the KC30A was something to go to Washington, Europe in.

KC 30

When the PM goes O/S why doesn't he use the KC 30?
It's RAAF and the thing apparently can be configured differently with more comfortable seating up the front.
It has enough seats for the media....

What about the MOU?
I'm no expert on that because it doesn't really affect me but I'd assume that the JQ guys could use it to come over?
