Im amazed an airline from either Canada or Mexico hasn't stepped in and proposed a Trans Pacific Route.

If it was cheap I'd fly to the United States via Mexico city.

It would be nice to see UA back in BNE flying SFO-BNE. I wonder what the market would be like for such a route? They need to come up with a better in-flight product first, QF & NZ have a far better cabin than UA.

Last time I flew to Melbourne there was a United Airlines 747 which touched down at BNE as we were walking out to our Jetstar flight. It was very early and the morning sun just touched a surreal yellow glow over the livery - looked amazing.

I think they may have had fog in Sydney - you can tell as most flights are directed to BNE which suddenly becomes very crowded.

How long ago was that? You're more than likely right. Or if it were a while back it could also have been when SYD had the fuel contamination problem.

That doesn't surprise me here. Canada's market is nowhere near as big as the US's. And the same goes for Mexico.

Frankly, I'm not sure if even Air Canada could support a routing from Brisbane to Vancouver or even Toronto. And that's with even a 787. I hope I'm wrong though.

Canada 3000 operated into BNE 2000/01. Not exactly sure what port they flew to in Canada, i'm thinking Vancouver though. Wasn't it BNE-HNL-YVR? Anyway, they did until they went broke. Not sure what the loads were like.

We had a direct route to Vancouver from Brisbane a few years ago - it was through a budget airline too.

Unfortunatelly Qantas undercut them in a major way and sold very cheap tickets from Brisbane to the United States via Auckland. In fact for a short while it was much cheaper to fly from Brisbane to LA than it was from Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland.

Its amazing what a little competition can do.

Oh, right! I forgot about C3 serving BNE with its A330s! (*sheepish*)

Canada 3000 was more of a charter carrier, but it did offer scheduled service to various places before it went under. I suppose it could have been thought of as a budget carrier even though it wasn't officially so like WestJet or Virgin Blue - I know the fares were quite a bit cheaper compared to Air Canada's domestically at least, and also internationally.

I heard that Brisbane is going to be the mainteance facility for the new Qantas A380's superjumbos when they are delivered. Good for Brisbane Airport and good to see these big birds making a home in Brizzy!

I reckon, chances are that Brissie might also be the new 747 Maintenance Airport, If or When the Sydney Base shuts.

Yeah Melbourne already did some 747 stuff so it got the 747's (about 70 workers or something). Another 70 (I think) or so are going to Brisbane, which does the 767's and will do the new a380's, and provided they don't go to China, logically the 787/a350's as well.

From QANTAS website

Qantas Engineering is in the process of developing base maintenance facilities for the A380 in Sydney, but it is unlikely that A380 heavy maintenance will be undertaken in Australia.

Given the small A380 fleet, in the short to medium term, airlines will most likely look to form joint ventures or use independent providers.

The Qantas bods over at Airliners.net seem to think it will be Brisbane but maybe it's all going to China. In which case I'm flying Emirates next time!

If Qantas maintenence goes to China (and we all pray it doesn't), I'm flying emirates aswell. Don't want to risk my life.
