    No more A380s from Oz To NZ

    There might be a bit more parking space at AUK soon.

    Oops you're right. Bit of a shame really because shorter flights like these offer people the chance to ride on the big planes without going to the other side of the globe in the process. The Qantas Sydney to Dallas 747 flight that came back via Brisbane was popular for the same reason because you could buy a domestic ticket on it BNE-SYD. Then it became A380 and non-stop.

    I've heard of people I know booking to SYD from here on it just for the experience at $70-$120 more.

    I guess seasonally (at first season input it was like 70% out of here) I guess the charges related to the larger MTOW hurt on low days when you have 4 a day doing a 3hr hop
