I have just received my electronic itinerary for an upcoming flight and lists the following

"Depart Los Angeles (LAX) Airport on Qantas Airways Limited Flight 0012. 744 Aircraft"

Can someone tell me what is a 744, or is this a typo?

Perhaps there are individual 744 aircraft doing QF12 that night. Now that's a busy sector! :D

It could be a 747-400.

Just be aware that list isn't universal. For example some airlines have several configs with same aircraft type and use different codes to differentiate, or a special code to indicate equipment varies. Eg on routes where NZ doesn't yet guarantee refitted 747-400, it uses code "74E" while "74R" indicates a (guaranteed) refitted 747-400.

Also EQV is sometimes used for "We don't know what we're gonna fly that day"

Certain bus trips have reached the status of legends, to be passed down through the generations.

It's just a little scary that you read far enough down the list to find that! :shock:

Hi there

Further down is TRN, used quite often in Europe.

BTW does anyone know when the 720 code (Boeing 720) was merged with 707? They are two very different airplanes.
B720's (Aerocondor) used to fly MDE-BOG due to climb performance, while the 707's (& DC8 except Aeromexico versions) more often than not hit a mountain at MDE :shock:
