The QANTAS round the world charter with Constellation Journeys departs Sydney on Sunday 22 April, 2018 for 21 days visiting Hanoi, Delhi, Kilimanjaro, Marrakech, New York, Havana, Tahiti returning to Sydney on Saturday 12 May, 2018.

I understand that VH-OEB will be operating this charter as it is the only QANTAS 744 still with first class and at $78k or $20k more than business plus you wouldn't settle for anything less!

Is it still anticipated that OEB will be retired as soon as this charter is completed?
