I cannot understand this CEO of Qantas Allan Joyce on why he did not order the B772 or B773 version aircraft instead of the Airbus A330 aircraft which I might add have had many maintenance issues and incredible high cost including refurbishment of the fleet. If Qantas would have taken advice from Boeing and ordered the B772 or B773’S like there neighbours did air new zealand. They would have being more economically better off in fuel savings and maintenance issues. Given the fact Qantas have had to restructure and cut costs and sack staff over 5000 employees I think they should have taken that advice and ordered the B777 aircraft using them in Australia and overseas. That way they would have retired the B744’s earlier to save money. Allen Joyce has already admitted he made the wrong move to purchase the airbus A330’s.
I would invite anyone for there views on this topic and let me know there opinions.
