It looks like OEE, OEF, OEG and OEH have all undergone heavy checks in the last 18 months so would imagine these 4 ER's are safe.

Whilst OJT, OEI, OJS, OEJ, OJU and OEB (in that order, with OEB being the most recent) have all undergone C checks.

As Fred C has posted other factors are taken into consideration but my money is on OEI and OJT as the next for withdrawal as neither of these 2 have had an extended hangar visit since 2016, that said it all depends of whether OEI is put through another D check as it can't be too far off.

I believe the B744's on QF3/4 to HNL have been bought forward to August also.

Today’s results indicate a retirement this month so it must be close.

OJT will be first to go it seems, possibly as soon as next week as mentioned in the previous post

Well OJT ferried BNE/SYD after its last QF16 on Sunday and then went to HNL last night, on the way back now. Wonder when it will be withdrawn???

I came across this article about Qantas and the 747 on the route to New York. It's quite interesting I thought.

OJT has not moved since arrival in SYD from HNL Monday afternoon. OEF still in BNE since Monday presumably for QF55 Thursday. OEH currently on QF575 SYD/PER domestic.
