What's the benefit to QF?
Unless there is a plan to increase them. It would mean more airframes, though.I'm sorry, is there a proposal to do this?
Cost vs benefit? If they tighten the turn around for QF93/94 then maybe it's worth it but they've run MEL A380 ops without a base to date so why start now with no increase in scheduled A380 flights from MEL.
Good point. I was thinking maybe EK being such a large airline worldwide would also likely have lots of Aussie pilots and with the huge capacity maybe it suits them to have a base or something here.It comes down to where the pilots live, not the capacity. Why would an EK pilot live in Australia and pay taxes???
