That's not going to happen. There are restrictions on the time of day during which Australian carriers can be granted slots at HND (officially announced as 0000-0605 but that's obviously changed as QF departs at 2200) and there is little in the way of public transport available at HND if QF were to arrive and depart without sitting around all day. Other timings would also not be particularly business-friendly, and that's the market QF is after.

Surely this hypothetical you mean? There are reasons why the schedule is the way it is. 747s to Hong Kong are used for premium passengers. The route is business heavy and knocking it down to an A330 just won't do.

Did you miss the point here? OJI is the aircraft meant to retire for the 15/16 year, so it retired slightly earlier.

With the 6 747ER what would be best. Hang on to them and replace them with the B777X like FY2021-2022 or replace them with 787-9s say a year earlier?

I though the 787 order was for the replacement of the ER's.

What could be the 747 first routes to which the 8 787s will replace and increase services on those routes? Will Qantas probably order the next lot of 787-9s next year to start new destinations like European destinations through Dubai and/or replace the 747ERs?
