Re: Qantas Fleet Thread 2018

Does anyone think we’ll get to see a 747 in the new livery before they go? Or is it too costly if theyre gonna be retired in two years?

Re: Why did QF purchase two 747-400s from MH and one from OZ

OEB is surely the next QF 747 to go into retirement, it's amazing to think they've kept her around longer than they did with OJT (a newer and refurbished aircraft retired only yesterday). Why? Because it's the oddball? Ever hear of hours and cycles? Fleet planning doesn't work like that. They aren'...

Re: QF 747 Retirement

Am flying SFO-SYD on QF in November and wondering if anyone would know if this route is usually served by a 747-400(ER) and if the QF74 service is generally featuring the A380 interior style? It will very likely have A380 interior style, as VH-OEB is the only bird with the old interior and she usua...

Re: QF 747 Retirement

VH-OJT has just completed her last commercial flight as QF55 into LAX. This brings the Qantas 747 fleet down to 9 (6 ER’s, JS, JU, EB). Notably, JT was the first QF747 with the “new” A380 configuration to be retired (VH-OEB, the only 747 with the old first class configuration, still remains in the f...
