OQD has left AUH as QF6004 to LAX.

It's over 2,000 miles shorter from AUH via the Atlantic and another 2,000 miles shorter again from DRS. If the A380s don't need to come to SYD the Atlantic/Arctic great circle route is the way to go.

It’s over 13,000Nm from AUH to LAX via SYD , yet only 7,200NM direct AUH- LAX . It would be a no brainer to go via the N Atlantic route .

OQG is on descent to VVV at this time after ferrying from Dresden as the QF 6006 . It has about 20 mins to run to landing and then a long rest in storage one would imagine .

Is there any update on when OQI will leave Dresden & head to Victorville with the other A380's?
