"Nalanji should be around for another 5 or so years yet".
"So OEJ didn't go to LAX today, has it been to LHR or FRA yet? Or SIN or BKK for that matter".
Yeah I'm aware of that, but would be nice to see the color scheme applied to a B744ER or maybe A380 in 2006!
Yeah, VH-OEJ departed this afternoon on the Kangaroo routes as either QF1 'SYD-BKK-LHR' or QF5 'SYD-SIN-FRA'. I would put my money on QF1 'SYD-BKK-LHR'. I'm not sure why the aircraft wasn't placed on the 'SYD-LAX' route. I wish I could help you there ZK-NBT.

Well FRA is a 2 class service now anyway, but 3 class aircraft will sub from time to time and even an ER.
Like AKL no 3 class service for QF now ex AKL, all the ER's have been here except OEJ which was surposed to come a couple of weeks back but was hit by 'that tug'.
I heard that OJB actually was stripped of the Wunala colours for a D check in 2002, they were then reapplied only for QF to decide that they would paint an ER instead, it was a rather costly little move, I believe it was because OJB was to go 2 class and Nalanji (743) already flew to alot of the ports, so OEJ was painted so that more of the world would be able to see an Aircraft that really represents Australia's true Beauty.
I may have it entirerly wrong but i'm sure it was something along those lines.
