With UYW now in QF livery, my records show that there are 19 E190s in QF livery. They are: UYE, UYW, UYY, UYZ, UZD, UZF, UZH, UZI, UZK, UZQ, XVB, XVL, XVM, XVO, XVP, XVS, XVT, XVU, XVX.

Does this reconcile with other's records?

Yes, I agree, so Alliance are only using 10.

Looks right,

There could be some QLink services being flown by some QQ liveried a/c.

Nice to get everything in order before the next batch starts arriving next month.

There are 10 in QQ livery plus UYB in the RAAF Centenary livery, i.e. 11 total. However, UYJ is one of the QQ-liveried aircraft and is operating exclusively for TL. So, realistically, there are 10 available to operate for QQ on its charter work. Then, as Greg said, the QQ-liveried aircraft do also fly for Qantas (my parents were on a QF service operated by UYO last week, for example).

This is what the QQ Liveried a/c were doing about 30mins ago:

UYB Gate BNE after QF1939
UFF QQ4722
UYI QF1949
UYJ ANO113
UYK QF1869
UYN Gate DRW after QQ4804
UYO Gate BNE after QF1914
UYU Gate DRW after QQ927
XFC QQ3105
XFL QQ855
XFM QQ852

Looks like the Fokkers are still carrying most of the QQ load

UFF QQ4722
Greg, thanks for your input. I think UFF in your list should be UYF.

Interestingly, UYF flew QF1989/1990 on Sunday, QQ4721/4722 yesterday and QF1987 this morning. So, there seems to be regular swapping of E190s between QF and QQ. UYF looks to be based in TSV at present and has been operating out of TSV to MEL and SYD a couple of time per week for QF and CNJ for QQ every Wednesday for the last fortnight.

Thanks James, Dyslexia again.

I think they swap around on demand, they are so tight on frames at the moment. I expect that is why they brought forward the acquisition of the extra frames in the second deal and will continue for a few months until the QF A220s enter service and free-up some E190 capacity.
