QF fleet management & 747 replacements

"Techie av-geek curiosity question: I was always wondering where Qantas takes the extra capacity during peak season to fly SYD-YVR (QF75/76) on the 747 and the 2nd daily flight on SYD-LAX (QF17/1 on the A380, as was the case this summer. Where do these “heavies” fly typically off-p..."

QF15 BNE LAX 24.11. - 747?

"VH-OJS returned to BNE as QF56 that day. It seems that the 747 has been used to run QF15/16 as a substitute for the Dreamliner at least once in the last few weeks. Hope it’s an exception / 787 or 747 maintenance / last minute swap - kind of thing and will not be reoccurring. Even though I..."

QF15 BNE LAX 24.11. - 747?

"I thought the QF15/16 is supposed to be daily on a 789 - see on Flightradar24 that today it is a 747 (OJS). Anyone has any info on that? Is this a one off or planned over the holidays due to increased capacity (in addition to QF55/56)?Thanks"

QF Points Upgrade Y to J from LAX/SFO -SYD

"What is your experience with points upgrade from Y to J on QF72 (SFO-SYD), or QF12 (LAX-SYD) - as a QFF Plat/Gold? On expertflyer I always see only 1 J seat blocked on QF72 and 2 J seats on QF12 - which I assume are blocked for points upgrades (no classic flight rewards available). Does QF fill ..."

Alan Joyce on inaugural QF9 Perth-London flight

"Thanks everyone. No need to down-like the post. Wasn’t aware that airline CEOs seem to mix up with crowds and fly even economy (read on quota “do airline CEOs fly commercial?” - respect to AJ for doing this. Seems that e.g. United have charter flights for execs and VIPs"

AA to QF layover time in DFW - separate tickets - how long should I budget?

"if your first flight will have a 30...60min Delay you will be screwed as your next flight is a separate ticket. Also OW does not forward luggage for separate tickets. You will most likely need to collect bags, check in, go through TSA and security - if I was you I’d play it safe - especial..."

Alan Joyce on inaugural QF9 Perth-London flight

"Saw in the news review on QF9 that AJ was on the inaugural flight. Respect - I must say. You don’t see an airline CEO too often amongst the public flying on commercial flights.Just out of curiosity does anyone know how it went down? I assume he was in business - would he have a bodyguard with him..."

BA Club Europe - AWFUL

"I love the 767 with the 2-3-2 layout. Wonder how they could have blocked the middle seat as there is only 1 out of the 7 seats abreast. Old plane? Just flew with a 25yo LX a320 - 20years service is totally normal for an airframe, and 10+ years in same configuration is the norm ( see QFs A388/B744)"
