Default QF Freight Movements

With so much going on with QF at the moment I thought it was wise to split out the freighter movements.

What we know:

*QF has 2 x A330-200's under freighter conversion:

VH-EBE is in DRS under conversion and is expected to rejoin the fleet this calender year
VH-EBF is in PUS for a repaint and expected to rejoin the fleet later this month (Sep)

*QF has 8 X A321P2F's on order with a delivery schedule (based on QF FY23 Annual Report) and subject to change

FY24 x 3
FY25 x 2
FY26 x 3

I have recently read that 2 x A321P2F could join the fleet this calendar year.

Great summary Greg! Do we know if Qantas will be retiring the 767 freighter?

Haven't heard anything specific but you would expect that the B737F & B767F days would be numbered as the "new" a/c come online.

Might be some delays with the A321s given operators of certain Airbus A321 converted freighters are being instructed to implement a tighter inspection regime for potential fatigue cracks in the centre wing-box rear lower spar area.

B767F abd B737F's are being retired. Greg, I think previous year or half year results QF had ordered 9 A321P2F's

Is "Hercules" the time QF has named an a/c after something not related to Oz ?

Worth nothing that VH-XMB has been sitting in ASP for over a year enjoying her retirement.

I presume that the Registered Operator for VH-EBF will be Express Freighters Australia Pty Ltd.
