it could if they woulf try the a-380 it has a range of 8,300 miles thats what they should do . flight mentioned has 7,400 miles so the a-380 has 900 miles to spare ...:)
Introduce some MARVEL MYSTERY OIL in the crankcases.
I don't see how you'r able to ascertain the result of the flight from the link. FA loses tracking on Qantas 8 over the Pacific and the arrival times and locations aren't posted.
Someone should mail an E6B to Qantas.
Quantas is using the wrong aircraft. A 777 w/standard tanks could make it non-stop bucking that jet stream @ flt level. And a slightly more northerly track (closer to Hawaii) would keep it away from that jet for a longer time.
@hardworker7- Its spelled Qantas... and Qantas does not own any 777s. but you do bring up good points about the jetstream
