According to Ausbt:

2 744's to go by mid-2018

Quote:
By the middle of 2018, when Qantas expects to have four Dreamliners in its hangars, its two oldest Boeing 747s – one which arrived in 1991, the other in 1998 – will be put out to pasture.

These aircraft are notable for their inclusion of dated first class seats in the jumbo's nose (shown below), and are most often seen on flights from Sydney to Tokyo, Johannesburg and Santiago.
3 more to go by mid-2019

Quote:
By mid-2019, with a total of eight Boeing 787s in Qantas stripe, three more red-tailed Boeing 747s will have made their final flight.

These will be largely replaced by the streamlined Boeing 787 or one of Qantas' six remaining long-range Boeing 747-400ER models which currently fly to Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.

Definitely subject to change just like the 2 eldest B744's Mike and Bravo which have been thrown an extra life line originally destined for retirement 2016.

I wasn't that far off the mark at all. The B744ER fleet will be the sole survivor and who knows probably past the 2022 mark unless the ETOPS implications get sorted out.

Not sure if this has been posted already, but according to a post on another forum, seems another Chinese route is on the cards.

China Eastern Kunming-Melbourne

It's certainly hard to keep up with all the China routes

In code-share news;

- QF to place code on LATAM's new MEL-SCL route
- LH Group to code-share with CX on MEL-HKG route

Hmm CX seem to be having a bet each way on OneWorld and Star these days.

CX always been a stand alone when it comes to Oneworld. Perfect example would be the attack on Aussie soil when they went 4 x daily on HKG-SYD.

They seem to work well together with other OneWorld partners like BA and Finnair, and lately Qatar. But not well with Qantas.

I've always thought that was a shame as a QF-CX alliance would be pretty unstoppable for Asia and also Europe flights using Hong Kong as the hub for both.

Better than Dubai in my opinion for many reasons.

CX gets along with almost everyone in Oneworld except for QF for many reasons. As pointed out by others CX have codeshare agreements with other oneworld partners.

QF/CX are the oneworld equivalent of Star's SQ/UA. The frosty relationship of each alliance.

VH-OJM definitely retires in 4 months time due to it's impending D (major) check, that QF won't be shelling out any cash for. OEB should be gone within the first half of 2018.

So OJM goes before the first 787. So what routes are getting cut, or are they not scheduling maintenance over this period.

The first 787 flight is December 2017.

4 months is July/August, a D check is one month, August/September, which leaves only 3.5 months gap. Surely that's a small enough gap to manage?

Yep, especially as the first 787 is delivered in October, the second is delivered in December as that ML-LAX flight needs two aircraft.
