A Qantas captain and second officer manning a flight scheduled to depart from Dallas were relieved of duties and are currently under investigation following a disagreement regarding take-off calculations.

After Qantas replaced the pilots, the Brisbane-bound flight arrived in Australia 18 hours overdue, Fairfax reported.

Although an investigation into the incident concerning the pilots is underway, Qantas faulted the weather for the flight delay.

“Qantas flight QF8 from Dallas-Fort Worth to Brisbane on 14 August was delayed overnight as a result of severe thunderstorms in the Dallas area,” a Qantas spokesperson said.

In related news, the Australian flag carrier has announced that 16 of its Boeing 767 aircraft, used on domestic routes, will be fitted with all new interiors and individual in-flight entertainment consoles.

In line with Qantas’ re-investment strategy for its domestic fleet, Boeing 767s will be kit out in new carpet and lighting, leather seat covers in Business Class and a new entertainment system streamed directly to devices in every seat.
