I noticed that all 12 QF a380s have not yet been refurbished yet (although Vh-OQF was repainted months ago.) What type of seat interiors will they be getting for the Airbus A380s

Economy is getting new seat fabric and ife screens

Premium Economy is getting a big upgrade with the new 787 seats (hopefully with more leg room than on the 787, but that remains to be seen)

Business is getting a massive upgrade from the droopbeds to the new 787 suites

First is getting new seat fabric and ife screen


The refit should happen over 2019/20

First class gets a refresh: https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-first-class-facelift-for-the-airbus-a380

Business class and premium economy get upgraded to the same (or maybe slightly tweaked) seats as on the Boeing 787: https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-to-upgrade-a380-business-class-seats-to-new-business-suites

All cabins are going to be updated with products similar to QF's a330 and 787s.


This includes:
  • New Economy fabric (unsure if a330 or 787 style used) and IFE (Panasonic eX3 - same as a330 and 787)
  • Premium Economy upgraded to 787 product (maybe a downgrade)
  • Business Class upgraded to Business Suite product as seen on a330 and 787s from Skybed
  • First class has new fabrics and updated IFE (Panasonic eX3 - same as a330 and 787)
  • New lounge area to replace the currently useless lounge space on the upper deck.

And I can assure you this upgrade cannot come soon enough. We travelled on qf1 last week in business and it is certainly starting to show it’s age.
