QF 747-200's

Tue Sep 24, 2002 4:04 pm

Just looking at the QF schedules it seems that the 742's have returned for the Northern Winter schedule starting OCT 27! I had noticed that they had been removed but have since returned!

They look to be on the following routes

SYD-AKL
SYD-NRT
SYD-PER

So good news then that these great birds will be around for a little longer!

Anyone got an official retirement date? Sad to see these birds going. It is now just VH-EBQ and VH-EBS left!

Aren't those routes operated by a B743? Why the change? Anyway EBQ had an engine failure last night.

Actually, I am booked on QF 30 SIN-DPS on OCT 19 and the flight shows as 742 on both Qantas web page and in Galileo reservation system.

According to Bill Harm´s census, only three 742s left at QF, all of them leased out to Air Pacific at some point. So I wonder myself what the deal is. Any QF insiders can shed some light into this ?
