Last Qantas 747 with F seats being phased out

"Given the current predicament with airframes, slot restraints in places like HND/HNL, ETOPS to JNB/SCL and oil prices that are now just as likely to head South as they are North - I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of the 6 747-400ERs being extended ‘til 2022. Even if it means they get..."
