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.
Ansett Australia - (was) One of the worlds great airlines!

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.

Quoting ZK-NBT (Reply 8): Did the AKL-PPT service ever extend to LAX with a 747?
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.
Quoting FlyboyOz (Reply 17): Nope....QF763s have never been to Vancouver. It has a codeshare with Canadian Airlines which is also operated by B763 as well
As others have said.
Quoting qf002 (Reply 18): 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.

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
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.
: 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
: 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
: I think the QF25 SYD-CNS-HNL-LAX may have switched to 763 before being axed.
: 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
: 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
: 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
: Late 80's / early 90's I've definitely seen the QF 767's at BOM......maybe operated for a brief period.....
: 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
: 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]
: 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
: 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
: 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
: Looking back through my logs I have flown, October 1994 on QF 763's: BKK-DPS SYD-ADL-PER PER-SIN-HKG HKG-BKK
