Re: Qantas Fleet Thread 2018

Mon Jul 02, 2018 11:02 am

I did a tour of the Airbus factory in Toulouse in the summer of 2007, and I saw what became VH-OQA in the green but with a painted tail, which was the 1984 livery still. Obviously it was repainted into the then-new 2007 livery prior to delivery. Sadly photography was not permitted inside the factory so I was unable to snap a picture. But I did ask the question of the tour guide and she said it would be repainted.

So that means that VH-OQA's tail, once it is repainted, will have seen three liveries!

Edit: found a pic on the inter web:

I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

-EBS has come out of BNE maintenance in C27 Y224 config. Looks like row 6 is moved to second (smaller) business cabin while rows 38/39/44 were removed, while row 58 gains a pair of window seats.

Seatmap is here: https://www.qantas.com/content/dam/qant ... 4-july.pdf

They’ve actually just renumbered the rows (I assume to match the A333), so row 58 (previously row 57) has actually lost the centre set to make way for the enlarged rear galley.

I think the one after would be the 3rd of September since QF81 will be operated by an A380 but there is no QF82 this day.

OQG arrived in DXB last night for painting.

OQI has been out of service for a couple of weeks at SYD. Similar pattern to OQG prior to repainting so maybe OQI is next to be painted?

Only 4 more to go in this batch of 380 paints, after OQG. (OQF, OQK, OQL done so far)

Is somewhat strange that it appears to be the younger ones being repainted first in DXB.
Would appear the 8 will be OQE-OQL

I can only think this is because the oldest 4 will be the first to be refitted internally by Airbus and probably painted at the same time.


-OQA will be the next A380 to enter the paint shop departing SYD on the 14th of July.

Word the 1st B717 will be entering the paint shop soon.

EBO has been in the hangar for a few days. Probably the likely next 332 to be reconfigured with new international config.

NBN Satellite is targeted to the landmass and won't cover the Tasman Sea. Whereas VAs Gogo 2Ku has a wider spread but slower speeds.

In the 332s I thought I had read that the first aircraft was still in test phase.

The aircraft is fitted, but maybe not 'active' yet.

Flew home on QF72 tonight on -EBB, there was no onboard signage anywhere on-board about the wifi. Again I asked this set of crew about this particular aircraft and wifi and they said it wasn't fitted.

They were also domestic crew staffing this QF71/72 rotation.

Last I heard either -EBG/L was due next into the hangar for 'domestication'.

Even with -EBO/S converted into the new A332L configuration the Skybed pair are still regular on QF107/108, I suspect it'll take a while for the schedules and forward booking to aclimatise to these new configuration.

A couple of posts over the last couple of pages here say that -EBB and -EBC have the wifi humps fitted..Not entirely sure about -EBD though. QANTAS website 'inflight wifi' are stating that by end of 2018, 80 of the domestic fleet of B737's and A330's will be fitted with wifi. There are approx total 71 B737s (which are getting 'humped' at a steady rate). So if that's the case they better get wriggle on with the A332s. These are just my observations based on what's been printed here and on qantas site. So time will tell...only 4 1/2 months til end of 2018 :)

I have noticed the 332 fleet are doing a lot more 'east coast' flying compared to past schedules. Maybe less wriggle room for wifi installs to occur. I am also aware 'plans' can change. Not a criticism, just a fact :) Yes, its Sunday, I have time to over analyse things lol

Really there is only 3 and half months to do them as by early December QF will have all widebodies in the air being the busiest time of year. I have my doubts that all will be done by end of the year. I have also noticed an increased amount of A330 flying between PER and SYD and MEL. The pilot issues they have are certainly starting to bight them in the backsides, redeyes on Saturdays are now A332's and have been since late June, we are also get more A333's here as well. Some of the scheduling as well has been extremely tight, there was a AKL-MEL than doing MEL-PER schedule with a 15 minute turnaround a couple of weeks ago, there was a east coast to PER flight then doing a PER-SIN with a 30 minute turnaround both being unrealistic turn times. On top of this over the past few week the on time performance and delays out of SYD & MEL havent been great, though this is not just affecting QF but all domestic carriers. I have also noticed that the 744 on SYD-PER (581/582 rotation) has only arrived in PER on time once and departed from PER late everytime, the average delay on these flight has been at least an hour. I shouldnt complain too much about these delays as the other day I was on the ramp at Gate 47 when the Qf 744 rotated right in front of me, what a sight.

From original announcement when EBB was announced it was under trial for a period, so don't believe active on any 332s.

71 737s on Aus register, plus 4 on NZ register which are expected to come across.

Just a shame Qantas's solution (which uses the NBN SkyMuster satellite with its focussed spot beams doesn't provide coverage over the Tasman

Do those 330 turn times include towing from international?!

I wonder if they may need to keep the 744s a bit longer to support the domestic flying, until they pilot issue on the 738s is resolved? Could be good over high season across the Tasman and transcon. Are there any potential hour limitations on the 330 tech crew? I believe there are significant shortages of long haul cabin crew with many trips being given to short haul crew.

The times I sourced were from FR24 so yes it would include towing. Come mid Dec they should have 3 744's available (1 from HKG and 2 from BNE-LAX-JFK) to take over 3 weekly SYD-YVR, extra 1 weekly on SYD-SFO, SYD-SCL and SYD-JNB plus 5 weekly SYD-HNL, after all of that there should still be some slack still left over

Guess it could be a good period to replace some A330 capacity on SYD-MEL with 744s (or even better from QF's perspective, replacing 332+738 with a single 744 rotation)...... :stirthepot:

Good work as always qf789 and moa999.

The A330 fleet is currently getting really decent utilisation, all frames are currently very active with the exception of -EBV and -QPF which are both currently in BNE.

Of note also is the repainting of the A330 fleet into the silveroo livery has come to a complete standstill.

-EBL did a charter from DRW-NRT-DRW yesterday guessing this was ADF related.

There's been an increased amount of domestic A332's doing east coast to Singapore services the past couple of weeks.

QF71/72 being operated by a mishmash of configurations.

After flying several trips recently on 'domestic' A332's in Y, I much prefer the hard product in these compared to the internationally configured ones,

QF has posted on Instagram that VH-ZNF will depart as QF6026 at about 3am Sunday (Sydney time) which presumably means about an 8pm SYD arrival

Yes, the updates are very much appreciated!
I had a flight booked on QF38 in October which has been cancelled, possibly the shortages are starting to bite?

I was on VH-EBS for QF23 on Sunday 12th of August. Apart from the 2 hour delay, part of which was late arrival of aircraft but most of which was winds in Sydney, it was a great flight. I've got to say, thank god for the extra toilet. I was in 4K directly in front of it and as much as I normally avoid being near the toilet, it actually didn't disturb me at all. It's certainly much better than everyone fighting over the 1 at the front!

Yeah I agree 100% for C28 Y243 birds to go long-haul, they certainly need this toilet. Glad you had a great one.

-EBV seems to be taking a long time to reconfigure.

-EBG/L have been doing a lot more domestic flying the past couple of weeks.

Also at what flight time does the flight have to be operated by a A332L or A333? I'm guessing KIX, PVG and NRT can't be operated by a domestic/regional A332.

EBS 5Jun-4Jul 29 days
EBO 5Jul-1Aug 27 days
EBV 24-Jul. - at 30 days as of Thursday

So I'd expect it out any day depending on what other maintenance was done, and whether it was worked on at the same time as EBO.

When I was waiting for the toilet on QF34 from Osaka back to Sydney the customer service manager apologised to me about the wait and said luckily it wasn't a domestic 332. (Business class, 1 toilet only)
So yes, you can actually see a domestic 332 flying to KIX. (Not sure about other two though)

Just an observation.. A332 -EBG looks to be 'hanging' at BNE the last couple of days. Maybe in for the conversion/refit to 28J suites/243Y ipad seats...and maybe wifi hump as well.

Just had a read of the 2017 Financials of Qantas, and found the following of interest, so somebody else might:
All figures at cost in Au$;
Cost value of fleet + engines 21billion, but fleet now depreciated to 10billion

Cost value of spares 835million now depreciated to 281million

Capital committments(I would think aircraft make up the biggest chunk of this buit that wasn't clear) 11.4 billion based on AU$of .76 v US$

They deprteciate their aircraft over a range of 2.5 years to 20 years but spares 15 to 20years

What I found most interesting is that purchase of slots is given at $35 million at cost. I thought it would be higher but Qantas probably bought some of their slots a long time ago.

Slots that are received through the allocations process at most airports are free - it's secondary-market purchases that are much more likely to attract the big bucks.

Yep I believe she's finally in for 'domesticisation' after a long career flying ULH routes.

Believe -EBQ is next into the hangar for A332L conversion at this stage.

Thanks for that :) I have noticed -EBQ been very BNE focused with its flying recently...probably waiting for -EBV to exit the hanger.
And here's a bit of goss...from yssyforum...an internal memo... -EBM/N will also end up in the A332L (27J/224Y) ...So -EBM/N/O/P/Q/R/S/V will be 27J/224Yconfig...This is just what I have read...don't shoot the messenger lol
