"Perfect for long-term aircraft storage and demand that the facility is now so how long that the space is being expanded to accommodate 60 more planes, but not one of the 137 Qantas or Virgin Australia aircraft that are currently grounded are in Alice Springs wage. So where exactly are they? Well I decided to find out and I published the results of my research interests in Australian frequent flyer article, which is called. Where are the 137 ground corn home invasion planes, and I've linked to that in the episode nodes. What I found was well rather depressing to be honest at the moment only 55% of the Qantas Fleet and 56% of virgins planes are in active service. That is they're not completely parked long term and that doesn't include the aircraft types that both Airlines have already permanently retired since the start of their pandemic. This is just their current fleets, but particularly in the case of Qantas, most of these planes that are now in service of you know, from the smaller domestic and and Regional fleets and the aircraft that are in service are also very much underutilized. So even though 55% of qantas's Fleet is currently active Qantas domestic capacity has only been it around 20% of pre covered for over the past few months and until two weeks ago Corners had not operated a strong International passenger flight for several months one interesting thing. I did find is that Qantas has still using 9 out of its ten Airbus a 330-300 all of the two hundreds of Park, New Jersey. A lot of those were going to have alone and have now been moved to Sydney or Brisbane. But yeah of the a 330-300 are still being used these planes are all fitted with seeds their passenger aircraft. But at the moment they're being used predominantly on cargo flights to Singapore Hong Kong Shanghai and Tokyo and they're even being flown under the same flight numbers that the regular passenger flights to these dead stations would use so sometimes you see them on flight radar for example is qf29 or qf Twenty-One, but there are no passengers on these clients at all. They're just Freight flights a few months a 330-300 s though are being used on passenger flights between Australia's east coast and Perth at the moment. All of qantas's a380s are currently in storage in the United States wage. Most of those are in Victorville and a couple are in Los Angeles where Corners has an A380 maintenance facility which atones and only two of the 11 Qantas Boeing 787s an hour in service dog. Of the Qantas and virgin planes that are still grounded most are in Brisbane Sydney or Melbourne Park to the airports there and there's also a small number of planes parked in Avalon Canberra a delayed Tamworth to warmer and Perth. And for some reason from the information I could find Virgin Australia seems to have also two planes parked in Singapore and a single Boeing 737 in Christchurch New Zealand some reason now speaking of grounded planes the Boeing 737 Max has of course been grounded since well before the pandemic started in a small way the wage and Derek may have actually helped buying by taking some of the pressure off to get the aircraft type recertified although overall..

I know we have a number of stations and frankly, last year at this time, Mary and I we were broadcasting this show from Gulf Shores, Alabama. They're dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sally. We were live actually last year Mary from the logic Gulf State Park. It's a great property there on that popular appear that they have it just underwent a $2.5 million renovation is scheduled to reopen this week. Ah, chunk of it is now missing, but also, you know, nearby Orange Beach, Perdido Key Pensacola, where we had a great time last year. They're all suffering. So our thoughts and prayers go out to them and you know, so I'll start off with that just and anything you have to say on that. And then you guys go into some news. I've got something else. I get a minute. Okay, well, I was cheering to note that the first casino in Vegas in the history of Vegas anyway, as outlawed smoking beginning at the end of this month at Sea Park, MGM now that's not the MGM Grand, the huge one But but it's a very new modern hotel on DH. It's part of the MGM family, and they've outlawed it there and also at their hotel within a hotel called Nomad. I I got to tell you Not that I go to casinos often. I mean that thing. I've been to one in a couple of years. But when I do I have to throw my clothes in the washing machines. They come home like smoke. You don't smoke, especially in Vegas. It's always been a problem in Vegas is better than most places. We have some very nice Indian casinos in the area around the twin cities here in Minnesota. Yeah, And they're they're pretty classy. I mean, but you but they don't have the exhaust system or the air filtration system. The Vegas as it is, it is just I always love when you go to the casino, especially in Vegas. You know, you walk through the lobby in order to get to the check in desk in the casino itself, And by the time you get to check in, I mean, you probably lost a year of your life. That book, right? Right, Right. It's firsthand. So gets that secondhand smoke. Well, so during the pandemic, if any of you listening have ever had the urge to get in your car just to go for it Derive. This is a very popular thing to do in our family. Well for you, aviator fans who really miss just the idea of flying not the destination. But just the whole idea of the flight is the story for you. Qantas Airlines. S old, a flight to nowhere and tickets sold out in just 10 weeks. This is really interesting. The sightseeing flight to nowhere is going to depart Sydney on October 10th its going to spend seven hours in the sky. Flying over Queensland, the gold Coast, New South Wales, the remote Outback of Australia, the Jets going to also do a low altitude flyover over certain landmarks, including the famous Bondi Beach. The journey is going to take place on, Of course, Qantas's Boeing 7 87 Dreamliner because that is, of course, a beautiful aircraft windows. We reported last week that the tail section way hopefully that's checked out on DSO anyway. 134 tickets across all classes were sold. The CEO said he thinks it's their fastest selling flight in Quantas history. And no passport required. And there's a few reports out there that Singapore Airlines is going to do this, But here we are in the world of social distancing. So you're on the plane. You know the windows. The Dreamliner windows are bigger than most plants. I get that. Okay. But you know, if you're in the aisle seat, you're now leaning over to your side of the capacity significantly reduced, See out the window. If you're in the middle, I would think they would have to be all window seats. Because if you're so if you're on the aisle, you're not getting a great I actually think that it would. They were all they sold out within 10 minutes or so, you know, I know, but for Bobby and his family were that Bobby was left only wishes he could get to Australia. But what if it's the length of the flight? That gets me? You know, it's 23 hours of seven. I mean, you know you want to fly seven hours to French Polynesia, you know, But I guess you know if you're Ah, sheltering warriors, and and your you've got nothing to do at home. Well, if I go fly for seven hours of what I had to have a celebrity in house there, there's some celebrity host That's going to be joining them. My smallest onboard entertainment, You know, good for them. I think it's interesting and going over. We've obviously been there too. You know that the All over the great barrier Australia and it's a beautiful thing to see. Alright, Here's something I just throw out. His story makes me really questioned the company as one of the most basic things you think about flying right? Would be the airline Wait, levels the takeoff level. Well, Southwest Airlines just announced a few days ago that they're grounding 115 planes for discrepancies. And you know when the data on the Jets wait The airline is dealing with a £75 discrepancy. They were fined or the FAA said they were going to find them. 392 million for this earlier in the year. I mean Southwest Airlines get it right. I mean video. How do you know how many people would fuel so They say there could be some delays coming up with the plans? I don't know. I mean, you think that might be a basic one on one Ah, that they want to get is to get that right. So flight wait levels and rather important, All right, one of them. I'm sorry. I was just going to say one thing. I do want to let everybody know right now is you're tuning in Next week. At this time, Mary and I are going to be live on remote with you from the water's edge Resort and spa. We're going out there traveling.
