QF32 Operated By 744 Today, Why?

Tue Feb 01, 2011 5:56 pm

QF32 LHR-SIN-SYD is showing on Flightstats as being operated by a 744 today, 1st Feb. More worryingly the 744 is showing as both the 'Scheduled' and 'Actual' equipment, which does not suggest a late tech swap. I was under the impression that all QF SYD/MEL-SIN-LHR rotations were all back to 100% A380 scheduled. Following the engine swaps and the two new deliveries, not forgetting the suspension of the LAX rotations, surely QF have got enough 380 metal to cover all the Kangaroo-Run rotations. As I'm due to be on QF32 exactly five weeks today (booked on the strength it being my first A380 flight), can anyone put my mind at rest and confirm this is indeed a just a late equipment swap an that my flight will at least be scheduled to be operated by A380 ?

most probably is the a/c doing the Cairo charter returns. I gather A380 wouldnt be not be overly supported tech wise especially and you wouldnt want to get stuck with the uncertain nature of the political scene.
