I'm not sure about Qantas, but April looks like it was ugly for them. Nearly half empty A380s. Now as I always state, I am estimating their seats blocked for the return (based on something I was told ages ago), so the 75 being blocked is probably off and certainly probably changes a bit each day. I'd love if someone had updated info! But the fact is, when you have 25 A380s and you run 8,702 arriving and just 4,890 departing passengers, the loads can't be good either way. The flip side is that QF is apparently selling out most of the premium seats on this route most days, so money may still easily be made. 14 First, 64 Business seats.
Thoughts? Updates on QF seats?

They've occasionally upgauged TA440 SAN-DFW to a 320neo. They must be doing well on that route for that upgauge.
