@QF744ERQF is going to use the 747 on SYD-PER services, replacing an A330 which will in turn replace the 737 on PER-SIN but it will reduce to 1 per day. Looks like the 747 will also be going to Hawaii sooner than expected and the 787 will be used on BNE-MEL returns. 717’s will also get an increase, although I don’t know where. This is because of a pilot shortage on the 737.
NO detail on when his is likely to commence or how long it's for (OEB can't have that much life left in it)Word is these daily SYD-PER-SYD-PER-SYD services will be operated by -OEB, which is now being retained after the Captains Choice tour, if so, it's quite high utilisation for a B744 at the end of its career.
