QF A380 schedule.
With the change to the schedule of QF9, is this the correct representation of the movement of Qantasâ A380 aircraft?
Red line represents one aircraft and the blue line represents another.

Love the diagram.
I think with when QF 10 arrives into MEL it turns around into QF9 (hence not being parked overnight).
Additionally, QF94 turns around into QF93.
I would think with schedule changes (for next year) QF 2 would turn into what is now QF 107 (can't remember what the new number will be).
Which means that QF 12/QF8 would turn into QF7 or QF 1
My head hurts!

Let's not forget about Dallas... ;)
If you want to see what each jet is up to, head to The Qantas Source and change the aircraft type to the A380... you can then browse flight history by registration number.

No, that's definitely not it.
For a start the same aircraft will do QF1>QF10>QF9>QF2
The evening arrival of QF10 turns straight around and does the return QF9 with the changeover at LHR.

By a few seconds you beat me to it, naggi!
Yes that makes sense as well; to mitigate against any weather conditions, which may affect Europe or North America.
You isolate two aircraft within each region to minimise complexity in the event of disaster.
I don't think the inbound QF10 turns into QF93 the next morning.
Instead I think it goes back to LHR, then swaps out to the SYD flight and would THEN probably get to LAX (or DFW)... Where it might swap and then go to MEL...

I'm quite sure it's SYD-LHR-MEL-LHR-SYD, but I never quite got around to slotting that into the LAX and DFW diagrams.
I've also noticed recently that there have been a few unexplained cancellations on the DXB>LHR sector of QF9
They seem to have kept this a bit quiet but it may say something about the loads from MEL
I read that they had cancelled 5 or so services due to reduced seasonal demand. So not sure whether they were that quite about it.
I must have missed that one!
Can't get them all ;-)
