Reported on Twitter that A332 VH-EBF has performed its last passenger flight and will soon head to Germany to be converted to a freighter.

VH-EBF is due to depart PER shortly for DRS via SIN to start its P2F conversion. It is expected to take around six months.

Any word on when QPG, EBB & EBD will return to service given EBF is now leaving passenger services?

The last passenger flight operated by VH-EBF was PER-SYD on Monday as QF654, the red-eye arriving at just after 6:00am on Tuesday. It then departed SYD-MEL, MEL-ADL and ADL-PER as QF7531 arriving early afternoon in WA.

An unusual way to get to PER and only just over 30 minutes on the ground at both MEL and ADL. Picking up crew for the onward flights from PER to SIN and DRS maybe?

It is now en-route to SIN still operating as QF7531.

Now en-route from SIN to???, appears to be past India on Flight Aware, over 5 hours.

Onward crew requirements are minimal given the overnight in SIN, probably took the opportunity to do training given the dead sectors, makes sense.

OQA was moved over to TBIT at LAX this afternoon (Thursday afternoon in LA).

OQL lit up at Victorville earlier today as well which might mean she will be next to leave the desert?

That would leave only OQI in storage I believe?

Thanks for the information, Ben. OQA could be flying to AUH for refurbishment with OQL to replace her at the LAX QANTAS maintenance facility. We shall watch with interest.
