Qantas New A/c

Tue Aug 13, 2002 8:29 pm

Does anyone know if there is or when there will be photos of either the A330 and/or 744ER in QF livery available. I need them at the moment for a piece of work I'm putting together. Also anyone know when the 743's are going to have their interior refurbishment. I'm off to Hawaii in Feb next year and would like to know. Thanks guys and girls, you rock.

Regards,

I´ve seen pictures of both future aircraft in QF livery on the manufaturers websites. Just do a search there in the news archives for example. It might be they have been taken offline in the meantime though.

At this stage, the first Qantas 747-300 will go into the hanger for refurbishment March 2003. Can't see this being much help to you for your trip to Hawaii in Feb.

Just a little side note, the first Qantas 747-400 to be change to a Business/Economy Only config. is due online mid September 2002. So I guess when they have enough 2 Class 400's to pick up the 300's flying, they can then complete the 300 refurbishment.

Thanks hope this info helps

Regards

VH-OEF, the first Qantas B747-438 ER due to be delivered to the airline, will not be rolled out for painting before 19th August.
VH-OEE ( presently N747ER ) will remain in Boeing colours for a while, while the flight testing programme continues.

A big thank you to all for your helpful comments. I think I'll stick with Feb for my trip (I kinda prefer the old QF J seats anyway).

OH and thanks for the photo links.

Talking bout the ER's, does anyone know when schedules for the DFW service will become available, or mention of fares?

Will Qantas be retiring their 762s anytime soon? I heard from a mate that the 332s are supposed to replace the 762s, but I have not heard this anywhere else. Anyone confirm??

Thx

At the moment the first A332s will be used to start a Cityflyer service from PER to SYD and MEL.

About the DFW service, is this still on track? arent AA 'dehubbing' DFW?

According to Qantas.com codeshare with American Airlines will handle the route next year ...The service was suppose to be AKL-DFW but it seems that the route is like this..... AKL-LAX with Qantas (QF25 744) and then change planes and get onto a American Airlines Flight which goes LAX-DFW so maybe they have other plans for there new 744ER's  Confused But maybe we will have to wait and see .....?  Confused

MilesDependent - I can't see them retiring the 762's soon - they are still relatively young aircraft as far as their age goes, although they are getting long in the tooth as far as their cycles goes (since their transfer to domestic ops).

What I can see happening is the A330's going over to the short/fat routes - SYD-MEL, SYD-BNE, that sort of thing, thus increasing capacity. The 762's will meander over to either short/not-as-fat or long/fat routes, such as OOL-MEL, etc.

The only aircraft I can see disappearing are the 733's and possibly the 734's - the 733's seem to be a tad small lately, and the decision regarding the 734's will come down to economics compared to a 73H, as opposed to the price they can get if they sell the 734.

I hope they fly the B 747-400ER into Hong Kong. So as the A 330-200.
