QF's GE Powered 744's

Sun May 06, 2001 2:48 pm

Where do they fly these birds to? I know that they fly OJA-OJH? mostly to Europe, and the remainder OJI-OJU mostly to the US, All based on their interior configurations.
So where do they fly the CF-6 powered to?

I´ve seen VH-OEB in London, VH-OEC in Frankfurt, VH-OED in Paris and London. A good friend of mine in Los Angeles have seen all three there as well so I think there are flying to most destinations.

Cheers

Quite right Qantas operate their 747-400's in two configuration types.

VH-OJA, OJB, OJC, OJD, OJE, OJF, OJG, OJH, OJK, OJM, OJN & OJO 14 First, 65 Business & 315 Economy

VH-OJI, OJJ, OJL, OJP, OJQ, OJR, OJS, OJT, OJU, OEB (ex Asiana), OEC & OED (ex Malaysian) 14 First, 79 Business & 265 Economy

The first group known as Kangaroo Config, and the second group known as Pacific.

The Pacific Config aircraft tend to operate all non-stop Sydney / Melbourne to Los Angeles services, while occasionally Kangaroo Config'd aircraft operate services via Auckland.

Kangaroo Config'd aircraft tend to operate all other services to Europe, Asia, South Africa & South America with the aid of spare Pacific Config'd aircraft

Hope this help's to answer your question

When Qantas were still stopping in Perth on the way to J'burg, for the space of a few months they were continously using OED, just the one a/c, back and forth. I found this somewhat unusual.
(This is post olympics, up until the Perth stop was annulled)
