Was scheduled to fly A380 First SYD-LAX next week, but got a call today from QF Premium Concierge to say that A380 is being pulled from the LAX schedule until at least later in Sept now.
This is the 3rd time I have had disruption for this sector due to cancelling of A380 ops. Mr Joyce, I would suggest that it isn't passengers who are "not match fit", it is your A380 fleet, and your airline as a whole "who are not match fit"......
In the bigger scheme of things I managed to snag the last Business seat on an alternate day B787 service, so not a major issue for me; but a lot of people are going to get angry next week when they find out the hard way that 485 passengers on an A380 won't all fit onto a 236 seat B787. Schedules won't be updated for a few days yet apparently.
There were 5 operational A380's (VH-OQB/D/H/J/K) but this will shortly reduce back to 3 to only cover SYD-SIN-LHR for the forseeable future.

They shouldn’t have scraped the last 2 aircraft. They should’ve kept them. Fatal error
