I remember in 2000 I nearly booked a cruise with Royal Caribbean from Barcelona, including Qantas flights LHR-BCN. Never guessed it was charter...figures I suppose :d

Does anybody know who they do these charters for? And what exactly do the crew do onboard?

The charters are mostly for passnegers going on cruises. I went on a Princess cruise last July from Istanbul to Barcelona and at IST there was a Qantas 744 sitting at the gate. I arrived at IST from LHR on a BA 763.

It's for aircrafts utilization : their flights from Australia to Europe via BKK
some are not daily flight , so the aircrafts are parked idle in Europe , I know
a Thai national who works for QF as a flight attendant , he had to work some
of these flight , they stay with the aircraft , until it's time to turn around to
go back to Australia , or go East to Singapore , or where ever the routing
of their next "trip" will take them

AA2MM: just to correct you. They are daily flights. It's just that they have at least 12-15 hours sitting on the ground at Heathrow so why not use them for other purposes? In fact I have often wondered why BA doesn't use them to do, for example, a LHR-CAI return, and free up the utlilisation of one of their aircraft.

Frequent Cruisers...sounds odd but it's true. Catering is economy throughout.

A Qantas B-744 came to Heraklion last summer, or the summer before , I'm not very sure.
But are you sure they are going to fly to SKG?
Thessaloniki's airport is having a quite small runway and I think a 747 cannot land there.
I'm not 100% sure though.
It will be nice to see it in Thessaloniki.

Aussie:
BA have tried to use them. AIUI, the QF pilot union said "No thanks, mate".
