Anyone with access to a QF schedule for July 2008, please help me out. I flew a number of flights on QF to, from, and within Australia. I pulled out a ticket sleeve and jotted down the regs of the 744's that I flew on, however, I don't remember which one was which. I was hoping that you can tell me which reg belongs to which flight.
One was VH-OEH, a 747-400ER
The other, VH-OJF, a 747-400
The outbound flight (LAX-SYD) was scheduled for Monday, the 14th. (Departure was delayed well past midnight, maybe until 1:00 or so, technically left early on the 15th)
Inbound (SYD-LAX) was Thursday, the 31st (probably a 6:30-8:00 arrival into LAX, my connection LAX-ATL departed at 10)
There were a couple of domestic flights on QF that I wasn't able to get the regs for, I will see if I can find the ticket stubs with flight numbers. Help would be greatly appreciated

The only source I could find going back that far is 16right.com.
from the information you have given me sounds like you flew down on QF108 which was delayed to 0048+1 that evening unfortunately I couldn't get a registration for that flight however on the return flight was your flight delayed around 40 minutes? if so you flew back on QF149 which I can confirm was operated by VH-OJF.
I can also rule out VH-OEH from operating the return flight as it operated QF64 inbound from Johannesburg on the afternoon of 31 July.
so I'd say you flew on OEH on the LAX-SYD sector and OJF SYD-LAX.
OJF is actually an unusual aircraft for that route as it would have been in 3 class Kangaroo layout which is mainly used on european flights.
With your domestic flights did you fly to BNE at all? if you have rough times and equipment type I might be able to help you

Thank you so much, I appreciate the response.

I was in Oz when QF30 had its problem. My group was actually scheduled to fly back to LAX out of BNE, however, I think it was due to this incident that we had to go back BNE-SYD-LAX. (Didn't they have to do some kind of check on the 744s?)

As a matter of fact, they all either departed or arrived there. One would be BNE-SYD on the 31st. I arrived at SYD in time to connect to QF 149. It was a 737.
I am fairly sure it would have been the 19th, I flew SYD-BNE-TSV. I am sure that the SYD-BNE leg was on VH-ZXG, a 767. The BNE-TSV flight was also a 737, which left a couple of hours after ZXG arrived into BNE.
The last in 2008 was a JQ flight HTI-BNE, with an early evening arrival into BNE on the 28th.
One more was SYD-CNS this past summer, I know where the stub is, I will find the flight # when I get home tonight.
