I did the JFKJ/LAX leg in June last year and the aircraft was "pretty full". I was in Business Class which was full and premium Economy only had 2 spare seats. Economy had a few vacant seats but I estimate that there were well over 300 on the flight, an ER, OEI. Remember that the 5 x 744's to go are OEB and OJM with 353 seats = 706 and OJS, T & U with 364 seats = 1092, total 1798. Someone on the site here said that the 789's will be about 250 seats = 2000. Where is the availability for Expansion, an extra 202 seats not even 1 x 789??????????? Unless QF will put more seats in then we might have 1 extra 789 based on seat numbers.
As I have said before QF is running on empty with fleet numbers in the A 380's and 744's, nothing spare really.

The LAX/JFK tag flights average 300+ per flight, making QF the number 6 airline for domestic pax at LAX.

I wonder what registration block will be used for the new 787s. Hopefully a historic selection, VH-OG- or VH-TJ- perhaps. That's if QF have retained them.

If they were looking to give a nod to Qantas heritage the VH-EA series last worn by 767-200s would be ideal. Dates to Empire Airways days....

Most now occupied by private owners, so would cost a motza to buy them back off the owners. Don't think CASA allows sitting on old regos these days.

Ah. that would by why it's harder/impossible to get an A-Z block of 26 regos these days. I still wince when I hear a student pilot in a Charlie Zulu registered light aircraft.
