Does anyone know the rollout schedule for the upgraded Qantas A330-300/200 planes? Just a quick check on FlightRadar24, and I see that VH-QPD and VH-QPE seem to be out of service, are they being upgraded
Does anyone know the rollout schedule for the upgraded Qantas A330-300/200 planes for the rest of the year? I did a quick check on FR24 and I see that QF-QPD and VH-QPE are out of service - I assume they must be getting upgraded?

QPD entered Brisbane maintenance for refurbishment on the 23rd April
QPE is at the Singapore maintenance facility and is getting repainted, it entered on the 25th April.
VH-EBN entered Brisbane for refurbishment on the 17th of April
And to confirm the aircraft the are reconfigured in operation

VH-QPD is currently getting referbed and having a C-check at the same time. VH-QPE is in Singapore getting a repaint and should be out in a week or so and will probably be the next to get reburbed. VH-EBS is in Brisbane and is currently getting refurbed as well. Qantas want 7/10 A333's refurbed by the end of the year (3/10 done already) and 8/18 A332's done (3/17 done aleady). Info taken from YSSY forum.
I didn't know about EBS? That must be a first having three A330s being refurbished at one time? Is that the limit in the Brusbane facility?
Why do some A330s like EBN go to Brisbane but no get refurbished and just serviced?
Only VH-QPD and -EBS are in Brisbane now, -EBN is at Perth now about to go to Melbourne. Some aircraft only need minor checks so they may only stay for a few days. I think they can only refurb two aircraft, I believe the hangar can have 2 A330's at once or 3 738's.

So any guess if there will be an upgraded A330 on QF98 HKG - BNE route by mid July.

My bets would be against it. But I think the Skybed is still comfy
