Default Qantas Airbus A330 Fleet Refurbishment

Happy 2015 to all

This is the dedicated thread to the refurbishment of the Qantas Airbus A330-200/300 fleet over the next year and a bit.

Airbus A330-200
VH-EBV

Total Complete = 1/16

Airbus A330-300
VH-QPA (In BNE for refurbs since 3/11/14)

Total Complete = 1/10

On a side note, EBN has been in Brisbane for a week &
EBC has been in Brisbane for 5 days. Can anyone confirm if one or both of these aircraft have entered into the refurbishment stage?

Cheers,

Macca

With fuel prices falling, improved costs, domestic market recovering, international now profitable and slowly expanding... Surely QF would be better off holding onto the 2 A330s?
