    I suspect that depends upon how they do it. If the aircraft used is a modified 777X/A350, then it shouldn't be a problem. For instance the A350ULR is just a longer range variant of the A350.

    What's happened to the tie-up with Emirates? I think they used to transit Singapore prior to Dubai.

    It's still there and being expanded according to the article.
    I just wonder if there is too much capacity on the DXB route and maybe the Qatar dispute has spooked Qantas into going back to SIN

    Qantas will be taking over Emirates Tasman flights from Melbourne and Brisbane to Auckland. Qantas will add 2 weekly flights to it's BNE-AKL service and 7 weekly flights to its MEL-AKL service and many of these flights will be upgraded to A330s. This will leave Emirates with 1 daily A380 flight to Auckland and 1 daily A380 flight to Christchurch which will route via Sydney.

    Thanks for that Jerry. It will be of interest to my wife and me if we continue to use Emirates to reach Melbourne in that the timings will probably be revised. Currently the aircraft we use reaches MEL circa 0630 local (it changes marginally from year to year) and then flies on to Auckland before returning to MEL mid evening before leaving MEL circa 2230 local to return to DXB. The aircraft will hardly likely to be kept on the ground for 16 hours at MEL if it no longer goes on to AKL.

    If the aircraft arrives about 6.30 then I'm guessing the departure time would change to 9.00 or 9.30? How long does it take to turnaround an A380?
