Wow, not good...
Definitively not good! These are the times. I now hope Qantas will soon recover and looks forward into a positive future, of course this depends which way Qantas and the economy / demand goes. Regarding Boeing, I'm sure they will find a buyer for the planes.
Sucks for Quantas, but pretty sure Boeing isn't gonna have any trouble selling 787's in the next decade.
ord_a380 thanks for the post!
The decision to cancel the 787-9s is part of a restructuring that QANTAS group is planning to do due to the annual net loss that they posted. Although, I feel that cancellation of orders is usually not a good thing, it seems that is the prudent thing to do to keep them competitive going forward. So, all is not bad news.
Here is a link to an article that also came out today, with a bit more positive narration of the current economic forecast for the airline. http://www.4-traders.com/QANTAS-AIR...antas-Group-Restructures-Fleet-Plan-14470104/
a code share with EMIRATES ? =equals= leaving the BA partnership =equals= leaving ONE WORLD !!!!
Probably not. EK has code shares now with members of all three alliances.
Just seems sort of short-sighted to cancel future orders for a plane that is super fuel efficient and designed for long-haul flying (of which Quantas occasionally does....)
Of course if Boeing would pull their heads out of their arses and start delivering the planes it might help prevent airlines from canceling orders. Being years behind is not really helping them.
It seems though that delays would serve a Quantas order well though, which would give them time to get their house in order...
