    From todays Herald Sun and as a followup to the announced A330s or PERHKG..I'm assumin PER to all widebody means MEL/SYD and BNE only

    QANTAS has thrown down the gauntlet to its low-cost rivals with a decision to add 11,700 seats a week to its Perth flights.

    John Borghetti, the airline's executive general manager, said twin-aisle Airbus A330 and Boeing 767 aircraft would be used exclusively on the east-west route.

    Qantas has taken the action to retain high-profit business travellers amid growing competition from its discount off-shoot Jetstar and rivals Virgin Blue and soon-to-launch Tiger Airways.

    Qantas will replace its Boeing 767s on the Perth-Hong Kong route with Airbus A330 aircraft.

    Assume this will co-incide with the 743 retirements
