What were Qantas's original 767 routes?

In particular - does anybody know where the original (OGA B C D) 3 class 767-338ERs were used?

I know they used the 767 -300ER on the SYD-HNL-SFO route.

I checked my log and I flew VH-OGB SYD-MNL in 1993. Not much help, but it all counts I guess!

The original B767-200's were used by Qantas on sectors that were not profitable with a B747-200/300 aircraft. The inaugural flight was I believe MEL-WLG followed by flights from SYD & BNE to WLG. The SYD-ADL-SIN-ADL-SYD pattern was also where the B762's were routed as well as flights to NRT and I believe they were used on intra Asian flights between SIN-BKK & HKG. I don't believe that QF ever operated the B767's to PPT, however I will stand corrected if wrong.

The early B767-300's were used on Tasman flights as well as replacing the B762's which Qantas placed onto domestic flying after their take-over of Australian Airlines. Qantas also initially had VH-OGA, B & C delivered with a wall dividing P/C & J/C, this wall ran down the centre of the forward section of the aircraft. Qantas also had 3 mid-galley Tasman aircraft as well, VH-OGD, E & F. These aircraft were mostly utilised across the Tasman I understand.

Their last PPT service was MEL-AKL-PPT-AKL-SYD with a 763 which stopped around 2001.

Ah yes, that's right they did too! Did this B763 service ever go onto LAX from PPT?

I'm not to sure that it did. Did the AKL-PPT service ever extend to LAX with a 747? I think the 747 classics operated AKL-PPT initially.

Here is an old thread I found. I also saw the last departure from SFO when they discontinued their flight the first time, circa 1996.

QF used the 763 on SYD-HNL-YVR for a while, also on their very briefly operated SYD-HNL-YYZ route, but those services weren't until 2000.

Does anybody remember when the 3 class 767s were reconfigured to 2 class J/Y?

Was SFO a 3 class 767 route?

Not sure about being original 767 routes, but in the late 80s they had AKL-TSV-DRW-SIN and AKL-CNS-DRW-SIN routes. (im sure the flight no changed at either TSV/CNS ?) . PER-NRT was also with a 767-200 at some point I recall.

which was just as TN was formed, so they got into codehare with them

Nope....QF763s have never been to Vancouver. It has a codeshare with Canadian Airlines which is also operated by B763 as well

I remember somewhere in 90's that QF used their own B763 to fly between SYD-SIN-HKG (it was QF123) and then vice versa. Later it axed.

They returned briefly in July 2000, I think the flight was canned in the aftermath of 9/11. They also flew 763's into YYZ briefly before 9/11.

Apologies for the multiple edits -- for some reason nothing was working properly...

Sorry, not correct. Check the A.net photo database.

SYD-PPT-LAX was operated with 742 and 74M equipment. QF103 was one of the flight numbers used. I think SYD-AKL-PPT-LAX was the last iteration of the route in the mid-90s, before it was axed, using the 74L.

True I do remember seeing a photo of a QF 74L in SYD? I think it was arriving from PPT-AKL as QF104 or something. Yes it was QF103/104 SYD-AKL-PPT-AKL-SYD as I remember it probably late 1990s with a 763. Then MEL-AKL-PPT-AKL-SYD as QF33/104.

I can remember flying on a QF 767 in early 1994 DRW-SIN. I'm not sure if it was a 200 or 300 series. But I'm pretty sure the flight number was QF61 (QF62 return) and it originated in CNS

From Perth we had

QF7/8 PE -SIN-PER. (That was my first Qantas flight ever as QF8 from Singapore to Perth on the 11/JAN/93 on VH-EAL "City of Geelong" The flight would leave Singapore about 3:30ish and would arrive in perth at 8:30pm

QF77/78 PER-SIN-HKG-BKK-HKG-SIN-PER

QF71/72 PER-BKK-PER

QF79/70 PER-NRT-PER

QF75/76 PER-DPS-PER

Qantas also flew I think it was twice a week between PER-CGK with 763s in the late 90s
I think QF might have had a PER - KUL service with 763s in the late 80s/early 90s not sure if it was direct or went trhough SIN or CGK.


25 The777Man : QF also flew their 763s to LAX probably via HNL. QF 763s stopped showing up at LAX in 1994 sometime. Perhaps a SYD-HNL-LAX with the 763 ? The777Man
26 Flyingsottsman : QF also used the 763 on MEL/SIN/MEL in the early 90s flew that service Christmas/New year 1989/1990 also QF use to fly a 763 service Melbourne/Hong Ko
27 ditzyboy : I think the QF25 SYD-CNS-HNL-LAX may have switched to 763 before being axed.
28 TN486 : Hi all, I am in possession of the following QF timetables that are, IMHO, relevant to this discussion. (in line with the OP's questions).They are 1 No
29 Flyingsottsman : Very interesting to look at all those flights, compare that to a timetable of today and then you relise just how the Qantas network has gotten smalle
30 TN486 : Not possible as QF didnt fly domestically again untill Oct 93 (when they "merged" with TN). Hence the above must include all the 762 flying internati
31 gr8circle : Late 80's / early 90's I've definitely seen the QF 767's at BOM......maybe operated for a brief period.....
32 MAS777 : Qantas operated PER--SIN-KUL as advised above but also operated MEL-CGK-KUL and SYD-CGK-KUL before finally operating SYD-KUL-SIN for some time before
33 ditzyboy : Definitely in the mid to late 90's the SIN-BOM-SIN was operated daily by a 763 (and classic 747 and 743 at times).[Edited 2012-03-04 12:23:17]
34 Solent : Have caught the 767 BOM-SIN-SYD 96ish. A few of us were in the BA club and they didn't call us. We still left BOM about 15mins early as the Captain wn
35 thegeek : What about ETOPS? Wasn't that an issue for 767s when QF first received them? My memory of Geoff Dixon's tenure is that it was more dominated by union
36 RWA380 : Absolutely correct, I was flying a lot in and out of LAX 92-95, and remember seeing QF 767's parked for the day, often times sitting next their siste
37 Leej : Looking back through my logs I have flown, October 1994 on QF 763's: BKK-DPS SYD-ADL-PER PER-SIN-HKG HKG-BKK
