am sure Boeing would have covered themselves legally, but they want to keep customers, so will probably be a few deals around on new orders. If airlines tried to bankrupt Boeing, everyone will lose.Their business interruption insurance might cover it - or perhaps even the insurance on the aircraft themselves.
Where are the 359s being redeployed those dates? Extra capacity to Aus for school holidays?FJ appear to have reduced the new A359s NAN/LAX services that were meant to be 6/week from Jan 1 to 4/week. The other 3 days a week now appear to be A332/333. The A359s have approx 61 more seats than the A332s. Sign of the times perhaps ?
& the 737 max's don't seem to appear anywhere I could see.
QF 397 is FJ920Having recently flown QF to Nadi, overall I was a bit dissapointed. I flew QF397/398 BNE-NAN.
QF397 - this flight was cancelled the day prior. QF rebooked us on FJ1920. FJ1920 was operated by Solomon Airlines.
QF398 - whilst this flight took place, it was operated by Malindo.
Overall, I paid the "higher" QF ticket prices thinking I was getting a OneWorld style service, whilst the people of both airlines involved did a great job and I commend them, the food, no IFE, quality of aircraft was not what I was expecting. Next time will fly SYD-NAN and book QF metal.
don't know. can't see any extra SYD/NAN/SYD flights. Maybe FJ decided to now work the A359s so hard straight off the bat when A330s available & otherwise sitting around somewhere.Where are the 359s being redeployed those dates? Extra capacity to Aus for school holidays?
When you couldn't get a direct BNE-NAN award like us in December.Fortunately using an AA award we could get BNE-SYD-NAN for no extra points.QF 397 is FJ920
similarly QF 398 is FJ921
The 737 max debacle means FJ are 2 aircraft short. They leased Miami Air 738 short term & it has returned to Miami Air & now they have leased a Malindo 738. They can probably get by, without leasing a 2 aircraft by using the like of Solomons. Their A320 has a new interior but it an old aircraft.
Why would anyone fly BNE/SYD/NAN when can do it nonstop ? That would add 4 hours transit each way, mean a 0600 departure from BNE & have all the stuffing around at SYD.
