OEB is doing odd jobs before she retires next month. Putting her on routes where F is not sold gives QF good flexibility.

I think while OEG is in maintenance in HKG, A.380's OQI in maintenance in SYD and OQG being painted in DXB there will be no retirements just yet. Wait till the new 789's take over QF15/16 at the beginning of September and see what happens.

The regular maintenance was known when the retirement in July was scheduled, only way I can see it delayed is a couple of unexpected issues, ie OQB out of action for five days with a nose wheel issue

According to Flightaware VH-OEG did a 3 hour 21 minute test flight from Hong Kong so she should be headed back from there in the next few days.

Maybe not until after 30/7/18 as QF74/75 is operating to Vancouver during July, although QF127/128 is an A380 during July, so one 744 can be redirected from HKG to YVR.

Maybe, it will be determined on when OEB is retired, due for sometime in July. OEB for the last two weeks has been operating exclusively on the JNB/HND rotation.

OEH will be heading up to HKG for a D check on the 30th Jun.

OEB will not be retired until the first quarter of new year.

Financial or calendar?If that is the latter its quite a change from previous info released on market, which I suppose is bound to happen from time to time.
