Thanks all for the replies. A former QF mechanic I know (left 6 mths ago) wasn't sure whether the last few RR engined 744's (that Jupiter2 mentioned) have different engines. I know that there are 3 'ugly ducklings' (mechanics term
) that have GE engines. They mostly fly Pac routes but aren't restricted to those (as Jupiter2 has correctly stated).
But I suppose my original question hasn't been answered quite the way I wanted it to be. My mech friend has left, so he can't give me up to date info. I'll rephrase it.
Did the last few RR engined 744's delivered to QF have the -524G-T engines fitted? And does this mean that US-Australia flights are not weight-restricted anymore?
