Re: Qantas Fleet Thread - 2019

VH-EBF is enroute taking a test flight as QF117. I’m guessing it should be back flying commercially tomorrow? Any idea as to what will be replacing it? Yep -EBF back in service today QF119 BNE-AKL, and as mentioned previously -EBG is already in.The only A332s 'remaining' to have things done to them...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - May 2019

Anyone know why QF9 & 49 got cancelled tonight & why 2 dreamliners repositioned early Saturday morning? Looks like QF49 is operating. QF9 got cancelled in Perth after operating the leg from MEL so must have been a technical issue. The positioning flights resulted in QF55 being cancelled. Lo...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2019

Is the A380 utilisation going to be reduced until the completion of the refurb program? Normally A380 utilisation is 11 aircraft for most of the year with 1 in maintenance and then 12 during peak periods and no maintenance.

Re: Qantas Fleet Thread - 2019

On Tue 30th April, SYD-SFO QF73 is operating but there is no return flight scheduled. This is likely to be the retirement flight of VH-OEB, which is the next 744 to be retired.

OJU will be retired later in the year.

The B787 that is currently on MEL-HKG might go BNE-SFO 3 pw to compliment the MEL - SFO 4pw? This would also make sense if they replace SYD-SFO 747 with a 787 as it would offset the capacity reduction on SYD SFO.

Of course not. It's scheduled to JNB in 6 minutes.

So which one is scheduled to be retired before the end of December or has this retirement been cancelled?

Last QF 744 service to LAX (ex BNE) operated yesterday and last 744 to HKG (ex SYD) will depart tomorrow. After this, LAX will be 388 and 789 only, and HKG will be a mix of 388, 333, 332 and 789.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - November 2018

Was looking at VH-ZND on FR24. I noticed it has consistently plied BNE-LAX-JFK-LAX-BNE since the 12/10/18 and has just switched to an LAX-MEL routing this morning. Is it unusual for QF to keep an aircraft on a singular route for over a month? Not unusual for that routing as there is only 2 MEL-LAX-...

Re: Qantas Fleet Thread 2018

Looks like one of the 744s will head off into retirement m this coming Saturday 22/9. Will operate from BNE to LAX as QF55 and no return sector is scheduled for that day. Looks to be either OJT or OJU. The latter has been out of action for a few days now.

If history is an indication, reconfig will be done in BNE and repaint in SIN, so no.

Re: Qantas orders additional 787s, sets 747 retirement date

I wonder if JNB could become a night time departure from SYD and morning arrival in JNB in the years to come. It would then fit nicely between a SYD-PER-CDG-PER-SYD-JNB-SYD rotation. I don’t think the same would work for SCL given the arrival in SCL would be late at night. SCL would likely slot into...

My call is Massive Profit, 6-10 new 787s, BNE-US second route 3x weekly and SYD-HKG becomes year round A380 with F sales. I agree on this. Definitely think that HKG will become daily 380. With 2 A380 coming off QF9/10, 1 goes MEL-SIN and the other to SYD/HKG. It’s highly unlikely that QF would take...
