With all the action locally happening with 738BCF/SF demand I wonder if we will see her back in Oz post conversion?

See i heard multiple things for RQG.

Originally was to become a freighter, now i've been told by engineers that it's to be scrapped in Alice Springs

Id be surprised if she is scrapped unless there is some sort of major problem, given lease rates for an 18yr old 737-800 have been rising from a low of 125K a month in Q4 21 to a high of $180k in Q4 23. Freighter rates are dropping from a high if $220K in q4 21 to a low of $180K in Q4 23 or parity with the pax version, which might explain the reluctance to convert now. RQG is not 18 but close enough.

RQG was deleted from the VH-Reg on 24/04/2024 as "Cancelled - No longer to be used as an aircraft", scrapped.

Might be for spares, not unheard of that youngish airframes are being stripped of useable parts and scrapped, given with the current shortages of spare parts and new parts.
