VH-VZK (ex ZK-ZQF) will enter mainline service tomorrow (Wednesday) morning as QF505. ZK-ZQG will be withdrawn from Jetconnect after operating QF120 AKL-BNE, also tomorrow morning (to become VH-VYZ after maintenance in BNE).

Weird rego VH-VYZ.
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)

QF had VZN back when these aircraft were delivered, but as you said it has since been allocated to a hot air balloon. ZQH will return as VZQ.

VH-ZNG fully painted at the fuel dock (peeking out from behind the 767 tankers):

ZNH is also outside on the flightline.

Hope that ugly green on the seats doesn’t stay! Made its way to SYD F check in full and ugly.

Looking forward to seeing the F refresh, curious to see how they keep the product competitive, airport lounge seems to its current key leverage!

All that's been reported is a bigger TV screen, and presumably revamped seat materials and bedding.

I'd be hopeful they find some way to add some sort of doors for additional privacy, given this seems standard in F.

I just noticed my QF51 flight next week got downgauged from a 333 to a 332. From the seat map it appears to be in the new J27Y224 config. Is there any difference in the hard product in Y compared to the refurbished 333 fleet?

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.

Believe you're confusing with the C36Y199 version? As the new A332 (those with AVOD) have the exact seat as the -300 gets and the exact same system (11" eXLite according to QFSource). The conversion from C28Y243 to C27Y224 doesn't involve any hardware changes, just removing a couple seats really.

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.

Also appears EBP has been at BNE since 23/10, presumably beginning conversion to 27/224 (if so this would make it the 5th in the Intl config)

EBL which has been there since 2/10 must be due back to service soon (as 28/243)

The 8th A380 to be repainted in Silveroo ferried to DXB on the 7th, VH-OQD.

That's good news for me; trying to catch a ride on the new livery on QF8 in a few days. 7/11 isn't bad odds!
I didn't get a 'Harumph' outta that guy!

Forgive me, how many 332s are left with iPads also?

So once the reconfigs are complete we should be left with only two Configs for the 332:
10 domestic with iPads and 28/243; and
8 international with seatback IFE and 27/224

4 of the iPad aircraft are 2002-2003 deliveries, the remaining 8 are 2007-2008.
The international aircraft are newer again at 2010-2012.

Currently sitting on VH-EBP about to fly QF51 BNE-SIN I believe this is it's first flight in J27Y224 config.
