Looks like VH-ZXC has had its last flight.

It was deleted from the Aus Reg on 21/08/13 with the comment "parted out"

Does anyone know when the last 2 ex-BA 763's are leaving. It appears that contrary to a previous post I will be flying an ex-BA 763 in Mid November according to the seat map.

Wow very sad OGV is only 13 years old and a relatively late build B763, I find it hard to believe this one won't find a new home.

Flew on her BNE-PER in March and she was in great shape.

Wonder if they'll remove the refurbished iPad friendly seats before she departs.

Does the arrival of -VKA mean -EBQ/R will be transferred across to QF from J*?

Wow what an odd airline retiring the youngest 763 and with a new interior, ahead of 23 year old 763's - even ahead of ZXE with an old interior.

I guess it is based on maintenance requirements maybe a D check even?

It could be anything really, lightning strike causing major damage, engine needing overhaul, corrosion, the possibilities are endless.

I would however hope that if they plan on keeping OGP long term they transplant the Q-Streaming at the very least.

Also don't forget the economics of flying an aircraft type: FUEL, leasing costs, fleet standardisation (less engineers), potential buyers ...
