I think the point of this is to have customer feedback on whatever the innovation is. It's probably cheaper this way than refurbishing 8 787. But I would have prefer to see all A330 refurbished first.That would be interesting indeed. Though mighty unusual to spend money refurbishing an a/c (which was done in June) and then change its interior out again.
Interesting. Definitely would be a surprise, although those 333s will be with QF for a while yet so making them look fresh might be smart..Rumors on a.net that VH-QPJ will have the Dreamliner interior. Coincidently, QPJ is now on its way from VCV to SYD via KOA and should arrive tomorrow morning, just in time for the 787 presentation...
Thanks for confirming. VCV by comparison seems an awfully further way to go to get a repaint done.The other 7 333s (QPA-QPG) and the ex-JQ332s were repainted over the last 18 months in Paya Lebar QPG in Singapore.
I wonder whether these aircraft will need a full repaint or if they can just redo the tails, titles and belly
Roughly double the distance - 7687mi SYD-HNL-VCV versus 3614mi SYD-SIN-QPG.Thanks for confirming. VCV by comparison seems an awfully further way to go to get a repaint done.
