A few B747-400 questions....

When did the B744 type replace the A333 on QF 3/4...early 2018?

Since when has the B744 operated QF 73/74.....forever?

What are the other current destinations for the B744?

Has a date been pencilled in for the final revenue flight of type?

Robert, the 744 commenced operations to Honolulu on 20/8/18; has operated the 744 to San Francisco since QF resumed services there; QF currently operate the 744 internationally to Hong Kong, Tokyo Haneda, Santiago, San Francisco, Johannesburg, Los Angeles and Honolulu. Also Vancouver seasonally with Hong Kong and Los Angeles to cease 744 operations in December, 2018; all QF operated 744s will be retired by the end of 2020.

OEI due to ferry back to SYD from HKG today after maintenance at 07.25am HKG time, due at 6.41pm, QF6016.
Will OEJ replace it in HKG as I think this is the next for maintenance??

It looks as though OEI did a 3:30 hour test flight from Hong Kong yesterday. I think that they have done maintenance on the 744ERs in registration sequence with OEJ the last to be done.

It will be interesting to see if OEJ goes into maintenance before Christmas as the work is taking 6 weeks or more to perform. Also, with excess 744 capacity with the last Tuesday Sydney to LA 744 service on 27 November, 2018; Sydney to LA additional seasonal 2 pw service from 14 December, 2018 to be operated by A380s; Brisbane to LA operated completely by 789s from 1 December, 2018 and the last 744 service to Hong Kong on 30 November, 2018, OEJ may be able to be spared before or even with another 744 retirement. There are at least two 744s involved with these services.
