The airlines must be rubbing their hands together with glee. I remember flying from HK to London on one of two BA 747-400 flights that both left at exactly the same time and got to Heathrow at exactly the same time. Same with some of the busy legs between US capital cities. The ability to consolidate such flights will save the airlines a fortune.

Looking forward to the huge savings the airlines will be passing on to us consumers.... NOT.

mutzdeputz - hopefully the savings will be passed on by environmental costs - by reducing the number of flights and cramming as much people as possible :)

:O i thought the B777 was the longest, look at that thing! (A340-600)

Well done Sam Chui!! He's a very well reknowned aviation photgrapher.
Hasn't Sammy done some photgrapher work for Australian Aviation, and is this months Issue out yet Wezza, that if you know it is.

By the way, as of Early 2003, the A340-600 is the worlds longest operational Aircraft, thanks to Virgin Atlantic being the Launch Customer and all.

Actually much of the competition in the airfare market is, and always has been, price-based. In the long run savings will be passed on. It's worth noting that over the past few decades, international airfares have consistently trended down in real terms.
