KLM will immediately stop all code-sharing flights with Aeroflot, a KLM spokesperson reported to Dutch aviation news site Luchtvaartnieuws on Saturday evening. Both airlines are part of the Skyteam alliance.

Qantas is bringing back Sydney-Singapore-London A380 flights

Qantas' flagship QF1 flight from Sydney to London via Singapore will resume in June, with the A380 superjumbo reclaiming pride of place on the iconic Kangaroo Route.

Since November 2021 the Sydney-London service has been running on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and making the necessary stopover at Darwin (where, to ease the top end transit, Qantas turned Darwin Airport's Catalina Lounge into a temporary international lounge) due to Covid-driven transit restrictions as Singapore's Changi Airport.
