Has the Jetstar Hand Back of A330 to Qantas Begun and if so on what Aircraft

I noticed that QF597 BNE-PER is being operated by an A330 but Flight Radar 24 says its a Jetstar Airways Flight

The return has begun. Aircraft are being ferried to BNE & Sin for Maintenance before re entry back to QF Service.

Flight Radar may not have a File Photo of VH-EBR since its return to QF Colours last month.

Correct. The three newest have already changed hands back to QF according to planespotters.net.

According to this same source, the three frames that have returned thus far are VH-EBQ, VH-EBR and VH-EBS.

What's the cabin of these three return aircraft like?

QF updated A330 interiors or the tired circa 2005 (?) look?

No idea, if I'm honest.

So far, they happen to be the newest of the JQi A332s, so I would assume they have the 2-3-2 Recaro seats. I would expect them to be given the "workspace" treatment in the interim.

They are the same seats, just reupholstered with QF fabric and a table put over the middle biz seat. Exact same width, pitch etc. This is why these were the first three to go, they already had the IFE system and didn't need much work.

Im guessing the JQ A330s with the old interior will be the first to get the "New QF A330 cabin" as its not worth changing the interiors twice...
