I know Qantas are rolling out AVOD on their 747-400s over the next 12 months or so. Does anybody know if the BNE to LAX direct flights have this feature yet?
You'll find that [BNE-LAX-BNE] QF 175/6 are two of the flights that will have AVOD most regularly. It is predominately operated by 2-Class 744s. Competition doesn't really have anything to do with the AVOD upgrade. The reason 2-Class 744 aircraft are getting AVOD first is because they were the last to get the Skybed upgrade, and when QF decided on installing AVOD, it was easier to install the system during the Skybed upgrade then to have to fly the plane down to AVV again and waste more valuable time.i am flying BNE - LAX half a dozen times between the start of March and the early May. At this stage, as i understand it, there are no aircraft operating these services equipped with AVOD.
i suspect that because there is little/no competition on this route for QF that it will be one of the last to be fitted out. this was the case with the skybed rollout - the BNE/MEL/SYD - LAX routes were some of the last to be fitted in the skybed rollout due to the lack of alternatives on these routes.

Then with the rego. it is possible to check my fleet thread then determine whether you will have AVOD or not.
You need have access to QF's systems, or know someone who has access. The information is not available on any publicly accessible sites.bigjobs said:can someone let me know how to get the rego number of the aircraft a few days prior to departure.
