This months High Life contains a short interview with the BA training standards captain of the A380 fleet.
Asked whether he had flown the A380…
“we spent some time with Qantas over Christmas, flying the plane between London and Australia..”
..were these flights empty or do/did BA have an agreement with Qantas and presumably the UK and Australian authorities to use scheduled flights for training different airline crew. Or were these flights all empty…?
Just curious how this was carried out and whether it did involve fare paying passengers.
