This flight is one of the more iconic flights that Qantas operates. Back in 2011, they started flying this flight with a 747 from Sydney to DFW and DFW to Sydney via Brisbane. The reason this flight was started was because the Sydney-San Francisco flight was not profitable. Before Covid-19 times, this flight alone accounted for 8% of Qantas total revenue making it one of the most profitable flight for Qantas even though it’s operated by an A380.

A380 cruises at Mach 0.85

Also correct me if I’m wrong but I thought IF had only two A380 gates here (we only have one IRL)?

Thanks for the cruise speed, I know the A380 only has one gate in real life but for the sake of being able to add more people that might want to fly this route I went into IF and put some gates at the international terminal that could fit the A380.

Don’t play just a fan. I used to being in hockey training and stuff but now I’m out of that because my desired profession is a commercial pilot.

Same. I’d rather be a pilot than a hockey player!!

I see the gates list is full. If needed, you guys can spawn in and push back and go park at a hardstand. I would add some if I was in IFAET, but sadly I’m not - looking into it, though.
