Ok , but the document definitely states that the reduction from 12-11 747s with the OJI retirement was done in FY15. And it definitely states that a 747 is being retired in FY16.

I cant see the B744 fleet being reduced any further based on the current schedule.
The SFO flight needs were taken from the cessation of 744 services ex SYD/ MEL to LAX with AA taking over according to the qantas release at the time. Any JNB reductions would have been the result of the cessation of the codeshare with SAA and subsequent reduction in bookings.

"Qantas’ flights to San Francisco are made possible by American Airlines starting a direct daily Sydney to Los Angeles service from 19 December 2015. This will replace four Qantas’ B747 Sydney to Los Angeles services per week and one Qantas B747 Melbourne to Los Angeles service per week"

Ok so yeah you are are right about SYD-JNB but that document from Qantas clearly states another 747 is retiring this FY. SYD-HKG most likely replaced by A330, possibly double daily A330 to retire another 747

Since Alan Joyce a few weeks said that with reduction of some A330 east west services that we would put more A330s or international routes and he was particularly interested in Hong Kong especially to increase capacity.

Mark,

You will find the Wednesday JNB flight that was dropped is the 6th weekly frequency for SFO.

Looking at that slide again, they are counting OJI as retiring this financial year, so there is no more retirements soon for the 744s. How do I come to that conclusion, well the same slide says one retirement in FY14 and FY15, yet two aircraft had their last flights in FY15, with OJA heading to the gong.

OJM is not due to go until the end 2016. It is in for maintenance at the moment.

Not surprising given current fuel costs, I note QF have not had any new for sale listings for a while.
