Admin a écrit:En regardant effectivement la liste d'ordre chez qantas j'ai vu effectivement qu'ils avaient des -9 en commande
Et 275 ça fait un bon paquet pour un -8
Mais il y a eu tellement de changement chez Qantas à ce sujet... j'ai eu la flemme de vérifier
Comme tu m'y incite

et à priori ça n'a pas changer
787-8 de Jetstar : 313 PAX 2 classes
Et effectivement les -8 sont pour Jetstar
Donc 275 PAx en 787-9 pour Qantas
Previously B787-9s would replace Jetstar’s B787-8s, which in turn would be handed down to Qantas. That strategy would have allowed Jetstar to immediately gain the B787’s economics and then achieve greater improvements when the longer-range and higher-capacity B787-9s became available. Jetstar would have likely operated a single-type wide-body fleet comprised of B787-9s for most of this decade. Now Jetstar sees value and opportunity from operating both B787 variants.
There are markets where frequency will benefit from the -8s.
“There is advantage in having the ability to deploy both just like we do with the A320 and A321. There are markets where frequency will benefit from the -8s. There are markets where the economic unit cost advantages are better with the -9s,” Mr Buchanan said. Jetstar’s B787-8 will seat approximately 300 in a two-class configuration while the B787-9 will seat approximately 350 in Jetstar’s two-class configuration. Boeing’s official range figures give the B787-8 7650-8200nm and the B787-9 8000-8500nm.
qantas Upgrades B747 Product to A380 Standard
Qantas will introduce its fourth newly-fitted Boeing 747-400 (B747) to its international network later this month, offering more customers a new in-flight experience.
Qantas Executive Manager Customer Experience, Alison Webster, said international customers traveling on Qantas' newly-fitted B747 aircraft were delighted with the new product and service offering, which is aligned with our flagship A380 offering.
"In-flight entertainment is now available on larger personal screens with over 1,500 content selections," Webster said.
"Our customers in Business now enjoy new cabin mood lighting and the award-winning fully-flat Skybed designed by Marc Newson and our Economy customers also receive a new level of comfort with a custom designed seat featuring a unique footrest net and ergonomic cushioning and a self-service snack bar," added Webster.
"The fourth newly-fitted B747 is scheduled to enter service by the end of March."
The B747 Reconfiguration Program includes the complete retrofit of the aircraft interior, including new seats and new cabin configurations. The newly-configured aircraft are fitted with 364 seats: 58 Business, 36 Premium Economy and 270 Economy. The seats in all three cabins have won awards for their design and comfort, including the 2009 Australian International Design Award for the Economy seat.
By the end of June, Qantas will have six newly-fitted B747 aircraft operating on long haul Pacific routes including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Santiago.
For First customers traveling between the US and Australia, the A380 First suite will continue to be available on QF11 and QF12 (Los Angeles/Sydney) and QF93 and QF94 (Los Angeles/Melbourne).
The remaining three newly-fitted B747 aircrafts will be introduced across the long haul Pacific routes and Brisbane – Singapore by the end of October 2012.
Qantas will have a fleet of 12 A380s and nine newly-fitted B747 aircraft by the end of this year.
Loss-making international business
Qantas said its international business was seen posting a loss in earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of more than $450 million in 2011-12, compared with a $216 million loss a year ago. The domestic operations EBIT was seen at over $600 million, up from $552 million in the previous financial year.
"We are attacking costs and allocating aircraft and capital efficiently. Over $300 million in annual benefits have been identified from the changes we are making," said chief executive Alan Joyce, who aims to return the international business to profit by 2014.
The airline said with a cash balance of more than $3 billion, an undrawn standby facility of $300 million, and the flexibility to cut or raise capital investment it remains in a strong funding position
The airline has cut back on unprofitable long-haul routes, deferred plane purchases and announced plans to split the international and domestic arms into separate businesses.
‘‘We have taken decisive action to mitigate losses in Qantas international,’’ Mr Joyce said.
competition watchdog approved the Qantas-Emirates alliance today, to the
surprise of nobody. The ACCC had already flagged that approval was
likely in a draft decision. However, there were some interesting nuggets
buried in the 160-page final decision.
One such nugget was
the discussion over capacity requirements that the ACCC is imposing on
Australia-New Zealand routes, where both Qantas and Emirates are major
players. These routes were the major concern of the ACCC, because the
two airlines have overlapping service, and they could potentially reduce
capacity in the market.
The ACCC had already
proposed a condition that Emirates and Qantas cannot reduce overall
capacity across the four Australia-New Zealand routes where they
overlap. While the regulator has not required capacity growth, it will
review the routes in 2015 to see if growth requirements should be
The airlines had
argued that the capacity commitments should apply to all of their
flights in this market, so they could reallocate some capacity to new
routes between the two countries. Some airports had also expressed
concern that the condition might limit new route development.
In its final
decision, the ACCC has stuck with the capacity condition for the four
overlap routes. However, it has also given a pretty broad hint that it
will grant relief from the capacity rules under certain conditions – which could include the launch of new routes.
Here’s what the ACCC says in paragraph 655 of its ruling:
The ACCC considers that the proposed
conditions contain sufficient opportunity for appropriate variations to
be made where new trans-Tasman services are contemplated by the
applicants. The ACCC has not designed the conditions to restrict
efficient entry or expansion on trans-Tasman routes by the applicants
(or any other carrier). Take, for example, circumstances where the
applicants are considering introducing new trans-Tasman services that
require the diversion of capacity currently operating on one or more of
the four overlap routes. Such an example may constitute a ‘material
change in market conditions’, meaning that the applicants can apply to
reduce their capacity on the overlap routes to facilitate the
introduction of the new service.
