I just used the (very cool) Star Alliance RTW route planner and for SYD-LHR, the aircraft types are listed as "744" for the second, BKK-LHR leg, and "747" for the first, SYD-BKK leg. My first thought was that maybe they use the 747-300s for the Aussie flights, hence Star Alliance don't show "744" for that sector. Interesting to then stumble on this thread.
