I believe XZB was the trial aircraft for B738 WiFi before it was launched fleet wide. Possibly featured older generation hardware compared to what was rolled out across the rest of the B738 fleet??

Speaking of B738 WiFi, 64/75 aircraft have it fitted (~85%).

Registrations remaining without it are:

VXB
VXC
*VXD (Possibly being fitted in SYD Maintenance)
VXM
VXU
VYD
VYH

B717 -NXE has been in XSP(Singapore) for about 4weeks and today due to position XSP-BME-CNS QF6251. Possibly has included a repaint during its (maintenance) time in XSP. Pure conjecture on my part.

Well I'm no longer relying on 'flightradar' for accurate info...it appeared yesterday to be flying XSP-BME-CNS...and even showed it flew the XSP-BME sector...but now all that 'data' has disappeared...-NXE still in XSP..but flighradar24 has shown it has done 4 XSP-XSP flights in the last week

Don't blame FR24! On Tuesday when I was told NXE was coming home, QF6251 XSP-BME-CNS was showing on QF's website for Thursday. Yesterday morning that changed to today, and this morning it has changed again to tomorrow. So obviously QF has had to delay the flight twice, which would explain FR24 removing the positioning flights. The four XSP-XSP 'flights' (none of which is longer than 24 minutes, and two are <10 minutes) are unlikely to be flights per se, but more likely the aircraft being moved around at XSP while its transponder (I assume it's the transponder that FR24 picks up) is active.

In any case, the QF website is now showing QF6251 XSP-BME-CNS departing tomorrow, and QF6250 CNS-BME-XSP departing Sunday morning. I'm told QF6250 (when it happens) is YQX positioning for maintenance (and this flight has been showing consistently for the day after QF6251).

Ah makes sense, just seemed really odd to me that they would uninstall the wifi. But having said that it has taken them along time to re-install the wifi hasn't it?

Think VZD spent 7 days in SYD early July but no recent photos.
Agree that it has taken a long time.

Also despite I think 6 332s now having the antenna it doesn't seem to be active on many of them.

NXE made it back from Singapore/Seletar on Saturday, returning to service yesterday (Sunday). YQX ferried CNS-BME-XSP for maintenance yesterday. NXM is now back on the east coast so potential candidate for repaint in TSV... or maybe not!

Thank you.

I eventually found a pic I took of that info - 15 August was the date for the last non-ER VH-OJU to be available for purchase.

All of the other retirement dates from that source have been correct so far but who knows...

Just wanted to make sure the 744 fleet was all ER before booking a domestic 744 flight or the Antarctic flight.

OJU will be around until October from what I’m hearing. Then it will be all ERs remaining.

I'm locked out of my Flickr so can't upload it. If there's a way to upload or attach it straight to this site or PM it I'd be happy too. It is from myairtrade.com.

AUG 8th BNE A332 -EBG back in service after its refit to 28J/243Y (incl WIFI hump and ipad Y/C).and looks like (possibly) -EBM is in for its reconfig from 28J/243Y to 27J/224Y, as per the past announcement that -EBM/N would be reconfigured to the same config as EBO/P/Q/R/S/V.

"The airline said on Monday VH-OJU’s final commercial flight before the aircraft is retired has been scheduled for October 13 2019 as a special one-off service from Sydney to Los Angeles, with flight number QF99."

Just out of curiousity but given that all the 747-400's had 'Longreach' on them as a reference to QF's birthplace and the long range abilities of the aircraft, does anyone else think it'd be a nice tough to see the name on all of the Project Sunrise aircraft?

Any idea when the first 380 is due out of refurb? Looking forward to seeing the refresh of F and the new cafe seating. Wonder if it’s start or end of the month?

I think that would be a great touch - but unlikely, just like the Balarinji indigenous designs, each generation of QF management like to ensure they are refresh and don’t copy another.

When are the 330s due to be finished reconfig?

Most of the major A380 maintenance over past years has been with Lufthansa in MNL Manilla

Emirates in DXB recently did the repaint for 8.
Korean Air in BUS Busan has done 1 repaint and will do other 3
Seems as though Etihad in AUH has got the contract for the major 8-yr maintenance checks

The upper deck refurb is being done by Airbus in DRS Dresden

A332 -EBM is now showing as 27J 224Y on QANTAS seat maps, so can safely assume it has been reconfigured during its maintenance in BNE (currently still in BNE at time of typing but should be back online soon I'm guessing)

Is there any more reconfigurations happening for the 717s? Two class to one? Or reverse. They seem to fit the QFLink fleet niche perfectly and seem to be able to remain in the fleet a while longer so curious if QF like DL have plans to modernise them much at all?

As per Qantas Source, the latest reconfig for 717 is done in Jan 18 when -NXE is converted to a two-class bird.

Nothing more AFAIK.

Other than possibly recovering the seats on the one-class aircraft there really isn't much they need to do to them. The two-class aircraft are a very nice plane to fly. They won't be adding AVOD like Delta if that's what you were asking, but they are good for another decade "as is" (subject to heavy maintenance checks etc. which IMHO is what will finally determine when Delta, Hawaiian and Qantas retire the type).

I think QF (like AA) has pretty much decided to go BYO Wifi IFE for Domestic, although we haven't seen a new domestic aircraft since 2014 (and the screens in those latter 737 are starting to look dated)

The 2-class 717s got new seat covers, WiFi IFE and iPad mini in 2014/5 (but I think are now BYO).

Will have to wait for the next domestic order (possibly 797) to see though.
The 321XLRs (likely with some for Qantas from 2024) id expect to have seatback IFE but be used more on international routes)

Weren’t the domestic 330/ don’t later? And they kept their iPad mini? I don’t think QF have moved to BYO - they just don’t see value in refitting the fleet. I think it’s still a product differentiator from VA. But we won’t know until their next domestic aircraft. Hopefully a 797.

Seems like the first refurbished A380 is out of the workshop and making its first flight today as QF2 from London to Sydney via Singapore.

Exciting news! Looking forward to seeing some more pictures and videos in the coming days.

VH-OJU will be leaving the QF fleet tomorrow on departure to LAX and onto whatever the future holds for her. Alas, the last of the -400 base models will have left unfortunately...and then there were 6

Post somewhat earlier suggest maintenance only for OQL, and OQH would be the next refurb.

Seatmap for today's QF2 SIN-SYD still shows 2x2x2

Any idea why the wifi-equipped 332s aren’t actually utilising the Internet?

They definitely are, at least on the domestic runs. I was on -EBD last week between MEL and SYD and we definitely had the inflight wifi service along with QStreaming.

Really? I've flown EBE on SYD-MEL and PER-MEL in the past few weeks and it wasn't switched on either flight, nor did the crew acknowledge it at all.
