The flight QFA7554 is on flightaware.com right now. As far as I know Qantas does not fly to ORD. And having HNL as a destination is a little weird too. LAX would make sense. Short hop to ORD than back to LAX to load SYD bound pax. But HNL? Can it be one of those charter flights as QF does in Europe for cruise ship pax?

Quoting 777STL (Reply 2):
Short of a diversion of 107/108, you will never see QF metal at ORD.
That's actually incorrect mate. First DFW then ORD is on QF's North American expansion plans. Of course, there are a multitude of variables, including but not limited to the global economy and amount of frames QF receives, however QF will eventually fly to ORD.
NZ certainly will as NZ's FYE has specifically stated they want to fly their B787's to ORD.
