The daily SYD-SIN-FRA flight was also part of the JV - I flew on in in 1999 after connecting in on BA from MAN. I can't recall if MEL-BKK-FCO (QF15/QF16) was also part of the JV, although that was generally was flown three times a week.
QF also added SYD-SIN-CDG three times a week (QF17/QF18) but was prevented from the bilateral with France from going daily, which I recall it was very interested in doing.

In November 1973 I travelled London/Rome/Bahrain/Singapore/Sydney on VH-EBA which was the first 747 in the fleet.
The return was Sydney/Melbourne (fuel strike in Sydney so we topped up the tanks!) / Singapore/ Bahrain/Frankfurt/ London.
My first ever flight which was quite an adventure.

in 1993, QF81/82 fly SYD-ADL-SIN-BKK-LHR-MAN
And I also recall QF 5/6 fly SYD-SIN-BKK-FRA around the same time.
I think I got their Bangkok timetable of 1993 era somewhere in my house. Will get back for more info if I can find it.

My first international flight was QF61 DRW-SIN on a 763 in Early 1994. There was also a 763 SIN-HKG tag on flight originating in PER?
Xcarrier wrote:QF2 ex LHR routed daily via BAH and SIN, but I also recall that for a while one per week was supposedly routed via DAM but never actually stopped there. It was something to do with maintaining overflying rights IIRC. Each week one of us would be tasked with calling the 3 or 4 customers booked LHR-DAM to reroute them, most likely onto RB, although I can't recall exactly.
