Just found this whilst searching for ZXD's new owner!

VH-ZXA is now N489AS
VH-ZXB is now N283AS

Both are listed as stored.

I was talking to the FO on my MEL-SYD flight over the weekend and he mentioned the remaining 3 ex-BA 763s are due to be retired by September/October this year and the rest of the fleet will be retired slowly after the ex-BA birds are gone.

By the end of 2014, the 763 fleet is expected to be down to 5.

It all depends on 787 deliveries though doesn't it, with JQ 332s to replace the 763s?

Son-in-law flew MEL-SYD QFA490 last night on VH-ZXC which arrived at 21:25 and after landing, Captain announced that this was the last Qantas commercial flight to be flown by this aircraft.

Cheers,

Noel

Qantas 767 VH-ZXC is leaving tomorrow morning at 7am as 'QF6027' for VCV via HNL after being delayed from it's planned departure last week.

Will miss ZXC a little more then the rest, was my favourite Roller 767.
