Hello again guys...
Now, here is the exact opposite question to before.
What a/c that is currently in the QF fleet would you love to see QF retire and replace...
Enjoy!

Hello again...
I voted the BAe 146s...
WHY?
Well, I love the 747s, QF absolutely need them for their long haul duties as many pax complain about travelling long haul in 763s. Even the 300s are worth holding onto for shorter haul international which many pax fly on ie BNE-SIN, SYD-AKL, etc... The 747s are such a pleasure to watch too. Keep the 300s and OEB, OEC and OED as long as you can...
The 767s are a must keep for domestic duties as they are very suitable for sectors that many pax use ie BNE-SYD, SYD-MEL, SYD-PER, etc...
The 330s are not just such an aewsome a/c to fly on and look at but would be so ideal for short haul international that perhaps not so many pax would use, ie SYD-CHC, MEL-NAN eventhough bloody FJ does all AUS-FIJI services... The 330s would be better for international than the 763s is because the 330s are a bit larger and perhaps more comfy cabin wise to fly on...
The BAe 146s truly have no meaning to me. Most pax complain about flying on them and as a spotter watching them, they are too quiet and don't make a good enough sound. I think QF should just get a few more 738s or even 73Gs (more the 146s size) to replace the 146s on WA routes. In short, I think QF do have a very wonderful fleet.

RE: BAE146 for retirement

I am all for your opinion on retiring the 146's Dave.
They are slow and inefficient especially being 4 engines.
