With no foreseeable flying in the near future, QF announced that they're storing x6 787's to Victorville and 3 to LAX, keeping only 2 in Australia, I was curious where all the JQ 787's are at the moment?
Currently parked at AVV collecting dust.

Given the damp winter time and location close to sea, I imagine AVV is probably one of the worst possible locations for long-term storage; surely the 787s and A330s there can't stay much longer. There has been a lot of talk about the JQ 788s replacing the QF Cityflyer A332s (ironically these are the same A332s that flew for JQ) but I think QF will probably go for maximum flexibility in the next 12 months by having a solely A330 based int'l fleet.
Eventually the 788s may go to mainline domestic but that will also be accompanied by the decision whether they add an international standard J class or leave the recliners. Given VA is abandoning "The Business" for the time being, it is possible that the era of the "over-the-top" domestic J class is fast coming to an end.
