Nothing new that I am aware of. I'm sure if there is anything like that we will hear it here first.

The 744ER reconfigs were done during their C-Checks (well, at least one of them) - I'd presume that'd be the same for the 330s. Wonder if any of them are due for one anytime soon...

They did say the first new cabin was due out at end of 2014 so I wouldn't count on seeing a refreshed cabin in the immediate future, even then, I wouldn't hold my breath on refurb rollout not being delayed in true QF fashion!

(Speaking of reconfigs, QF said there were going to be espresso machines for J installed for the 747 refurbs... in the numerous flights on them, I have yet to be offered a coffee not from a plunger!)

RE: espresso...have you asked?? I wouldn't expect the crew to offer every pax (40pax maindeck/16 pax UD) an espresso (takes a few mins to make 1).....even in First, you ask the F/A

I can confirm on all recent Qantas flights i've been on (on the updated 747) I have asked and recieved espresso coffees. 

undertheradar is right, you need to ask. They publicise it in the onboard menus.

That's a good point. I did ask for an espresso on my first flight on the 747 reconfigs, and got instead the ordinary plunger (miscommunication or whatnot)... I guess I assumed from then on there were no said espresso machine. I'll ask on my next flight on them (soon) - thanks!
