I'd expected VZN and VZQ for ZQG and ZQH,
Or did QF not have the entire VZ block
(VZN is seemingly a hot air balloon. VZQ seemingly available)

Yes, the -200s have the older style seats with smaller screens (9" vs 11" on the -300s). It's a downgrade but not a huge one, the seats are still pretty decent.
moa999 wrote:Qf002 is correct.
The 332s with IFE have 9" screens (Panasonic ex2), whereas the 333s were refurbed to the larger 11" (Panasonic exLite).
The other config (of which it is hopefully only EBG left and not for much longer) had the 6" square Rockwell Collins screens.

I assume this marks the end of the Kiwi flagged aircraft.
Per upthread, these are expected to be registered as VH-VYZ and VH-VZQ.
Indeed VH-VYZ has just made its first flight.

They probably won't start replacing 738s until ~2025. No reason why these aircraft shouldn't keep flying to 25+ years, especially if they keep the cabins looking fresh.

Update... DEC 06 -EBL positioned BNE-SYD then return to service QF922 SYD-CNS. Waiting for confirmation re cabin refit/wifi install.
