And Orfeo, if you want to believe that, then live in your dream world. Loads are good, not that great though. There certainly is demand but not to the extent of Sydney & Melbourne, hence why the other daily BNE-AKL-LAX moved to the MEL run.

There is no need to be rude. I simply asked for an explaination as to the reasons of the increase in direct flights if loads were as bad as you earlier stated.

Don't worry Orfeo, he has no idea. If he knew the loads, he would post them.

Look, I really don't mind that you think I have no idea. Thats your choice. I provided information, you chose not too believe it. Water off a ducks back mate. Of course you wouldn't have asked for stats if I had've said that Brisbane - LAX route was in high demand.

But as you said, I clearly have no idea.

Yet another company/HQ is making its way north.

Air safety HQ off to warmer climbs
Brian Williams
10feb06

BRISBANE is to become the new operational headquarters for the Civil Aviation Safety Authority with about 30 staff to be moved from Canberra.

Staff were told of the shake-up yesterday that will see about 65 employees moved to capital cities and regional centres.

CASA already has 80 staff in Brisbane and it will become the nation's largest regional headquarters and drive all of the authority's safety and surveillance work.

The decision reflects Brisbane's status as the nation's fastest growing aviation centre with 42,000 aviation-related jobs expected to be created in the city and southeast Queensland over the next 20 years.

CASA's chief executive officer Bruce Byron said yesterday it made sense for the aviation safety regulator to have staff located where growth was occurring.

CASA's Brisbane office would be more than twice the size of its Sydney operation.

Due to its increasing number of flights, CASA's Cairns bureau would become the primary general aviation field office in far north Queensland, taking over from the Townsville office, which would be wound down over about five years.

Mr Byron said locating operational headquarters in Brisbane was part of a package of reforms being introduced to improve safety.

"CASA needs to have its operational staff as close as possible to the aviation industry and that's why we are abolishing positions in Canberra and creating new ones in Brisbane and at our other front-line offices across Australia," Mr Byron said.

CASA spokesman Peter Gibson said no staff cuts were planned, although the final make-up of numbers transferring between centres was not yet known.

Management teams for CASA's two key operational groups, air transport and general aviation, will be relocated to Brisbane.

Well, i'm glad we've settled that then!!

Oh yeah, average loads on BNE-LAX direct before the 5th direct fight was added was 85%. QF have made plans to make the flight daily. Not too bad i would say.........

Brisbane needs some more flights to North America. Like San Fran, Seattle and Vancouver. It doesnt make sense to fly to south to syd or melb to go north.

Having said that, i spose u need the numbers. we would be close to that sort of demand here i would think. i met a lot of queenslanders on my trip to canada

January Figures -

International - 342,055 (3.87%)
Domestic - 1,012,036 (5.25%)
Total - 1,363,931 (4.57%)

Better for international passenger, but worse for domestic and total passengers over the previous month, though not by much.

Good that international is up more. No surprise thought, because one Saturday in Jan was the busiest day ever for internationals.

"Sunday 8 January was the busiest day ever for Brisbane Airport's International Terminal. A total of 14,313 passengers passed through the terminal"

Couple of pictures from the carpark, showing the railway link to the domestic terminals.

Apparently, so i have heard. Well everyone knows by now that Virgin blue is going international, well the 1st route is going to be Brisbane to LA direct... and another would be Brisbane to Las Vegas... this is just a rumour but if Virgin Blue get the right to have "Virgin Blue" in international Sky's instead of being under the name of Atlantic, they will choose to buy only Boeing 787 and Airbus A350's.

Nice pics, thanks! I just realised, the railway looks a bit like some sort of extension was planned to be realised one day. I mean the overhanging end. Could this be possible or is it just a design "feature"?
Sorry if discussed already or just a stupid question because there's nothing where this line could be extended to, it's just this information didn't get to Germany (yet ).

A design feature I would say, as if the line were to continue it would cross a runway/taxiway. Plus there is already a line that services areas adjacent to the airport.

Maybe there is a plan one day for another terminal near the new strip, and the rail could extend to it? Long way ahead, but maybe, Heathrow has 2 tube stations and also another station for the Paddington Express line.

Virgin Blue won't be using Virgin in the name for it's new airline unless they get permission from Singapore Airlines (A major shareholder in Virgin Atlantic) to do so. I'm pretty sure they won't want to anyway, it's not going to be a no frills setup like the domestic operation is.

That was pretty much on the cards anyway. It came as no surprise. SQ still have the last say on whether DJ could use Virgin in the name for the transpacific airline.
