Interestingly last months QF Investor presentation made reference to the 738 fleet being retrofitted with split scimitar winglets, so assuming these would have to be the later International XZ* birds that do the International sectors, anyone know more? Love the B767 tail on page 1!

https://announcements.asx.com.au/asx...wgg3tvbwjc.pdf

Page 40/41.

Also with large numbers of A321XLR arriving in the not too distant future are we likely to see the 20+ year old VX* series 738s sold off for presumably scrap? There was a whisper a while back that some mid life 738s were going to undergo freighter conversion, but guessing the additional incoming A321Fs have shelved this.

I am not sure Qantas will be getting rid of any aircraft in the near future given the P&W issues will no doubt affect new aircraft, they dodged this with the neo but not the 220. Wouldnt be surprised to see the A321XLR visit Sydney as per of its route proving flights over the next ten days

The Airbus media for the route proving suggests the aircraft will only operate within Europe and to the US.
