I had a look at the "hanger" side of BNE Airport this morning, VH-EBN looking bright and shiny is parked sideways in front of the main QF hanger. VH-EBB and EBD are still parked outside the hanger where they have been for over 2 years.

When is this Inaugural flight not the Inaugural flight?

Apparently when Alan Joyce & the Premier of WA are travelling from Perth on the second flight, leaving this evening. Even the local press are trumpeting today's non-event

I spoke to someone who is on tonight’s QF5 SYD-PER-FCO and he told me quite excitedly that he is travelling on the inaugural flight but I told him the inaugural was on Wednesday.

He was very adamant that I was wrong because his family got an email from Qantas saying that there will be media onboard his flight tonight. I was so puzzled (I knew I was right because I saw ZNF operating QF5 on Wednesday and return as QF6 yesterday. Then I saw an article from Nine News saying the inaugural is tonight and now this post.

What’s going on?

Apparently Wednesday's flight was a "Frequent Flyers Only" flight from what I've read. But it still seems like an inaugural flight to me.

Wouldn’t be the first time, I was on the inaugural QF1 to DXB with Alan etc, the Melbourne flight got there well before us.

Wonder if they have “cargo” written on their windscreens?
