According to the article, the registration is due to expire January 15th so hence no more flying would be scheduled unless they renew the registration.

At the moment they would need all the 744's they can get. With QF75/76 taking a 744 out a few days and upcoming Antarctica Flights, I honestly don't think there is a spare 744 around.

Look at today (10/1/15)
OJA is in Narita (QF21 9/1/15)
OJI, OEI, OEJ is in Sydney, but there is are flights to Vancouver and Santiago (so would be either OEI / OEJ operating these services)
OJM is enroute back to Sydney (QF64) and would be assumingly heading to Narita as QF21 10/1/15
OJS is out of action
OJT is heading to Johannesburg (QF63)
OJU is heading to LAX (QF108)
OEB is in LAX having operated QF107 9/1/15
OEE is in LAX, heading back to Melbourne as QF101
OEF is operating QF107
OEG is in Brisbane, assuming to operate QF15
OEH is heading to Sydney (QF28)

There is only 1 spare 744 (OJI assumingly). So very little slack if anything did happen, especially if they took OJA out of the equation. I guess good thing they had OJA because if OJA weren't around with OJS's accident, then there would be very little slack.

Alex.

Australian aircraft registration doesn't "expire". Insurance may, time limited maintenance may.

As I was at the airport this afternoon, OJA was being tugged across to the hangars. She looked in need of a bath.

I wonder if QF swapped OJA's high & low time spares before the last trip to LA ?

So after the QF21/22 on 9-11 Jan, it then went back to JNB doing QF63/64 on 11-12 Jan, arriving back yesterday afternoon.

This is where the bean counters at QF have got absolutely no idea. It's obvious that they're not going to have enough aircraft to service their current network as well as add in extra flights such as the seasonal services to Vancouver, etc. It's time to exercise some of those 787 options and get cracking!
