I was wondering if anyone had any information on the Qantas A380 being refurbished anytime soon, it would seem logical it being done on the premium economy announcement, has anyone heard anything?

Qantas hasn't announced any plans, nor are any credible rumours swirling around right now - only logical conjecture that the A380s are coming due for a mid-life refresh.

Joyce said they had "no plans" earlier this year, (but didn't outright deny it happening in the future) I have a feeling when they order 777x or A350 they will either announce an upgrade plan or they will announce plans to cull some (maybe even both!)

When I saw that the MEL-LHR A380's have been swapped for the 787. My first thought was that would be so they can take some out for the overhaul.

It would match the timing as the new ones come online.
