Where Do QF Fly Their 744ERs?

Wed Feb 23, 2005 6:18 am

I couldn't find anything on this through a search so I apologize if this has been discussed before.

I'm going to fly BKK-LHR on QF in about two weeks. Is there any chance that I will be on one of their B744ERs? Where do they fly them?

I'm pretty positive they operate them LAX-SYD

You would be correct. Thats what they were made for. They do every now and then op them out on the LHR run.

It's a shame they are not operated on the LHR route as the standard 744s on the LHR route lack PVTs. A lesser product IMO compared to most other airlines running the route, the only plus being the excellent connection times offered.

A much-hyped SYD-AKL-DFW route was mentioned prior to delivery of the 6 ER's. This route never materialized. As mentioned above, I think the primary route is LAX-SYD.

The entire 744 fleet is getting ptv's in due course.

Are you sure? All LHR 744's now have the SkyBed refit, which included refreshed F features and updated Y, including PVT IIRC... When was your last LHR flight?

Thanks Bill142, didn't know that, with the A380 on the route in the next two years the service will also benefit greatly.

On QF at least a couple of years back now, and certainly before any cabin upgrades had occurred.

Mainly MEL-LAX QF93/94. I got OEG on 9 FEB MEL-LAX QF93 and OEJ on 11 FEB JFK-LAX-SYD QF108. For more recent info on this subject have a look at https://www.airliners.net/discussions...eneral_aviation/read.main/1965702/

all 744s have PTV in economy now...and have for quite a while.
