Hi James, thanks. OQC has been in AUH 21/6/21, OQA since 18/11/22 and OQI since 25/2/23. I wonder which one it might be coming next.
Dennis, I think it will be OQA first. Then OQI with OQC to spend some more time basking in the sun!

You could be right there, however, A, C and L have not had their cabins refurbished yet so perhaps it might be I next to come??

Who knows. I thought OQI could be next also because it had already had its cabin refurbished and therefore it would only need a shorter time for maintenance, but four months still seems a little too short.

OQJ positioned to AUH yesterday presumably for maintenance & OQD is in Singapore for the same so Qantas are now 2 x A380's down

OQI is currently performing a test flight out of AUH. Its return to service seems imminent given its already had its cabin refurbishment

OQIs test flight was a mammoth 3 hours and 26 minutes doing seven huge racetrack patterns at 11,500 to 41,000 feet and extending half the way from AUH to Qatar over the Persian Gulf.

Hopefully, the test flight went well and OQI will be back to SYD and in service shortly.
