Sr 103 - Thanks ... I forgot about that one. I guess then they really only have 1 to place and it would make sense to deploy it on the Cairns to Narita route to free up the 2 x 767' sservices which depart within an hour of each other.
9V-SVC - Not sure about that. I would say the yields and load on the singapore to Jakarta leg would be pretty poor. It may be gone forever.

You will find out that some services to Japan could be upgraded from the 767 to 743 down the track as it was reported in Australian Aviation that Qantas was awarded a 20% increase in capacity from Australia to Japan.
Thus you could well see some of the following be upgraded MEL-TYO, SYD-CNR-TYO or SYD-CNS (day ops flight).
Or the additional cpacity could be for expansion for AO as well.

I think that the reason for two daily 767s from CNS to NRT is that the landing slots for these flights were allocated to the 2nd runway at NRT which currently is not long enough to take a fully laden 743.
QF has previously indicated to the International Air Services Commission that it would probably combine these two flights into a single 743 service once the extension to the 2nd runway, which, I gather, is currenty in progress, is completed.

Further to my earlier post, here is the link to the determination (in connection with the Japan route) handed down by the I.A.S.C. earlier this year which mentions the plan by QF to substitute, by end 2005, a 743 for its 2 767s on the CNS-NRT route.
As far as the service to Shanghai is concerned, I believe that the plan is to fly the 330s on this route.

The 743's will be around for another 5-6 years. They have just spent tens of millions of $$$$ upgrading them. This not only includes the interiors with PTV's etc but major major techinal and engineering upgrades.
They will start to be phased out when QF gets a decent number of A380's.

Qantas management should be horse whipped for abandoning SFO-SYD to United. Do they really think we San Francisco people are going to fly to LAX just to fly Qantas? I hope SIA flies the route and makes Qantas pay for that lousy decision...

They are most definitely using 743's on the SYD-BOM route. I'm booked on one in December. ZK-NBT, QF's first one stop service to LON was routed LON-BOM-SYD with a 743. Don't forget NZ used to fly the 742's AKL-LAX, a similar lenght of journey, non stop. My longest 743 flight was on SAA, about 13-14 hours around the bulge of Africa during the apartheid era.
The last time I flew on a QF 743 was on an upgraded one. The crew remarked the new mood enhancing lighting made the Orange juice look funny. One stewardess even asked me to hold the glass of juice up to the natural light. She was worried it was a bit off until she saw it change back to a more normal colour in sunlight. Ah, the wonders of technology, eh?
Does anyone know if Nalanji Dreaming is still flying?

QF have always said they will be using the 200s to Bombay. I hope they haven't changed that decision. They used to fly 767s before the suspended the route, but that was via Singapore. Brilliant service on that route, but I never cared for the 67s - horrid aircraft, in my view.
25 ZK-NBT: QF have always said they will be using the 200s to Bombay. QF don't have any 742's left. Don't forget NZ used to fly the 742's AKL-LAX, a similar leng
