Current Qantas 747 schedule at LAX

Tue Nov 13, 2018 12:10 am

I'd like to get one last set of photos of a Qantas 747-400 before they pull them off the LAX routes, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what days/times I can expect to see one. Does anyone have a complete schedule? Thanks.

QF currently operates a 1pw QF11/12 SYD-LAX-SYD and adhoc QF15/16/55/56 services BNE-LAX-BNE.

For November QF will use 744's on the following services to/from LAX (there may be some others I've missed):

QF55 BNE-LAX operated by 744 on 12/11, 14/11, 17/11, 19/11, 21/11, 26/11 and 28/11
QF56 LAX-BNE operated by 744 on 12/11, 15/11, 17/11, 19/11, 24/11, 26/11 and 29/11
[QF55/56 then reverts to 789 from 1/12 (generally 4pw with some exceptions in Dec and early Jan)]

QF15 BNE-LAX operated by 744 on 24/11
QF16 LAX-BNE operated by 744 on 22/11

QF11/12 SYD-LAX-SYD on 13/11, 20/11 and 27/11. (27/11 is the last scheduled 744 service on that route - daily A380 after)


Last I checked, from 1st December there will be no scheduled QF 744 services to LAX.

On Tuesday there is a Sydney-Los Angeles Boeing 747 service, arriving at 6am as QF11, departing 10:30pm as QF12. From 4 December it will be replaced by an Airbus A380. On Monday, Wednesday and some Saturdays there is a Brisbane-Los Angeles Boeing 747 service, arriving at 12:05pm as QF55. On Monday, Thursday and some Saturdays there is a Los Angeles-Brisbane Boeing 747 service, departing at 9:05pm as QF56. From 1 December it will be replaced by a Boeing 787.

At least thats what FR24 and the Online Qantas schedule claims.

I had the joy of flying QF11 last month, specifically booked so that I could hop on the 747.
The plane (VH-OEH) went AOG in Sydney, so we had to wait for the inbound from JNB (VH-OEJ) to pick us up.
We were delayed 8 hours, but I was not about to let them reaccommodate me to AA's 787-9!!
They did, however, shuffle 255 people OFF of my flight, so that meant that basically every passenger in economy had a row to themself, and the crew were FANTASTIC.
What a bummer that they've only got a month left.
How soon before they're also gone from the daily (except Tuesdays) SFO run??

The next batch of QF 789's don't arrive for a couple of years. So SFO and HNL will continue to see QF 744 service for a couple of years yet.
