Since the re-instatement of PER-SIN on QF, the 332 has only ever been over a few temporary periods which generally coincide with holiday periods. It is pretty much 737 the rest of the time so this isn't a surprise. If you have a look at the IFE over the last fortnight or so, the 332's running the route have been the domestic version with iPad IFE in Y. I'd prefer the 737 IFE over the iPads.
I have taken both the 737 and the 330's on this route previously and obviously prefer the latter, however I do prefer to have the 737 over QF cutting the route completely.

To add insult to injury, on the 4 domestic sectors that have been downgraded our seat allocation of 24A&B was also 'transferred' to the 737-8 with zero communication. It is impossible to suggest that 24A&B on a 737-8 are remotely similar to the same seats on the 332.
BTW we are both Platinum, not that this means much any more.
