Cool, will definetly come!
Does Jetstar actually operate that flight
No, however Jetstar does do flights from Sydney & Melbourne to Honolulu
Yeah that’s what I thought
Jetstar goes surfing! I like it! Who came up with that name?
I am pretty sure it was Mr David Lockwood (@David_Lockwood) himself ;)
Well, (even though he’ll probably see this post) tell him it was a GREAT! Name.
Currently Qantas Virtual operates regional flights in our destination regions for the international flights from Sydney. Once Global is released then we will scale back these operations inline with the real life practices.
Our JST 208 is based on a real life flight Hawaiian 208 which flys this route using the B717 and Occ A330. All our flights are based on real life operations in order to add to realism and enjoyment for our members.
30 mins to go…
PHTO is currently using 08 for take-of and landings ( just watched a B748 go through an active volcano to land…)
Just showing the flight plan ;-)
