This is taken from the QF website,

Qantas today announced it would establish a third heavy maintenance facility in Melbourne for its Boeing 737 aircraft.

Qantas Executive General Manager Aircraft Operations David Forsyth said the new maintenance line, to operate throughout the 2003 calendar year, was required because of heavy workloads and a substantial reconfiguration program that included the interiors of 15 new 737-800 aircraft that were added to the airline's fleet this year.

Looks like all the 737s will begin to get a cabin upgrade in the very near future.

Not to mention the reconfiguration of the 73H's - they were supposed to be all Y, but instead are 8J/???Y - personally, I think they should leave them that way and use 717's on leaisure routes which do not require J class accommodation.

I last heard the 737-800s are staying in a J,Y config due to the Ansett collapse but they are going to be fitted with QF interior.

From what I understand the 737-800's will retain business class however seating capacity overall will be increased. Not sure by how many seats.

In anycase I have heard the American Airlines interior was quite popular with QF customers.

When will they start to reconfigure the 717s that have 12 J seats?

And I heard that the -800s will be getting convertible seats....
