How many 777x?
I really hope that if there is a A380 NEO Qantas buys it.

Right now it would be a toss up between A380neo, B777X and A350-1000 for future long haul fleet. But I think the workhorse of the fleet will be the B789 seeing as it fits QF's network and requirements. Ordering the larger widebody aircraft would probably serve to replace the A380s and B747 of which I would say max 20 aircraft (most likely based in SYD and MEL only). If QF buys B777/A350 then they definitely won't upgrade the A380 to the neo version. From what I've heard from sources the A380 capabilities are limited due to being rostered to a small number of QF's trunk routes.
