Qantas 747s - are ALL of theme refurbed with the mk2 Skybed? I can't get a straight answer out of Qantas - was told yesterday 'they are all converted' but the QF website shows still many old seating plans

Only the 9 newest have been converted.
The remainder won't be as they are nearing retirement and will be replaced by some combination of A330s returning from Jetstar, activated B789 options or something new

There are 9 aircraft with the new seats and 7 without (these 7 planes are on the way out shortly apparently).
The seating plans list the aircraft that are configured with that layout in the top right hand corner (and these lists seem to be kept pretty up to date - they're probably used internally as well as online). I don't know what the Qantas person was talking about (perhaps the refresh from a few years ago with the new seat covers in First, new carpets etc?), but they're not correct,

i'm interested to know WHO at QF told you they were ALL converted to SKYBED MK2??
Qantas reservations - kept me on hold for 20 minutes and came back with that.
think you better let QF office/management that reservations are giving out incorrect info..i'd suggest a tweet to @QFcustomercare if you can...to highlight this!! being clear and to the point that QF reservations informed you that ALL 747s are fitted with skybed MK2.

One thing is for sure, refurbished Qantas 747s are superb. Was in 2K on QF52 the other week. Absolutely brilliant. So much space and comfort and as we know, nothing beats being on a Jumbo.
