Lloyd didn't the Helvetic Birds have their engines removed ?

If so, they had to replace the engines before flying to ASP.

Based on the observations here and those on The Qantas Source, it looks like QF is positioning some aircraft destined for longer term storage to AVV (e.g. most of the A332 fleet and some A333) whilst the 73Hs rotate in service.

Ricky,

I think your right.

Also some of the A330's are being used on freight only runs
