The plane still there? thought it should left on the 14/08/07.:sweat:
It actually left on 15 Aug at 4am for Dubai as AIB702. Big Kahuna saw it last Thursday (ie National Day), the day when the demo landed.

I don't think that there will be any problems as Rockhampton Airport can also handle the Antonov.

The plane will disembark the troops at Rockhampton and the stewardess and aircrew will stay for a night before going to Brisbane or Sydney airport.

Ugh, don't like the plasticky seat backs.
Note that this plane is a mock-up configuration done by Airbus themselves, and not what will be offered on SIA's planes. That remains a closely guarded secret until the big launch on Oct 15.

With 471 seats planned for SIA on an aircraft that can optimally accomodate 525 in a standard 3-class configuration and up to 853 in full economy class configuration, it should be interesting indeed.
