There are B 747 service from Sydney to Brisbane and not the other way round. How come? It would be a re-positioning flight. Instead of the return flight going back to Brisbane, it would go to SYD or MEL

from SYD to BNE with B747 you have QF175,25,19 and 51 (QF97 is serviced by a 763), whilst for BNE to SYD you have QF20,26 and 52. All operate as revenue flights but as they operate from the International terminals they serve as feeder connecting flights / positioning. They can also be sold as domestic segments as well
The KIX flights (QF373/374 ops by JL) operate BNE to KIX via SYD but return non stop KIX to BNE. As such QF cannot sell ther domestic portion as a domestic flight.
The two 743's in storage are due to return in late AUG for BOM services and the second aircraft I hear conflicting reports of between SEP04' (reported in posts) and MAR 05' (Australian Aviation).
With regards to EBU (it is not scheduled as yet)
All 3 class refurbs (Skybed and other first class modifications) should be completed by MAR 2005 whilst 2 x class 744's should be completed by end 2005. (Latest update from QF Jul04'). Of course this schedule may change

Does anyone have the latest information on the Skybed upgrade. More importantly the new Pacific Config with 14F/64J/???Y. Which aircraft is down at avalon now, and which aircraft is next to be refitted. Thanks

Thanks ANstar, however the Qantas website does not give information on the proposed new Pacific Skybed Config, not does it provide information on which aircraft are currently at Avalon having their reconfig,s completed. Hope someone can help me with this. Regards
