Any idea why? (Speculation)

Also, where do Orix (Ireland) come into the picture, a leasing company? Surely QF have been leasing a/c for ages, what's the benefit of outsourcing this ?

The leasing company buy the aircraft, then lease it to the airline. Lease payments are fully tax-deductible and avoid having to put loans to acquire outright on the balance sheet. Easier to churn over for newer planes. Maybe they are gearing up for the 789 to come!

I don't think they're reducing the fleet, or gearing up for 789s. They're are a few 788s still on order, so, in this case, it just looks like one is being replaced with another. (Why that exact aircraft? Who lnows! Probably heading toward a major check)

XZM had its first flight recently, and there are three more on order behind that (lining up to replace 767s!)

With new accounting standards the full lease liability ends on the balance sheet anyway these days.
