How likely is it that QF117/118 to HKG will be on an 'un-refurbished' A330-200? I know there's always a chance - but is this one of the routes that gets the older aircraft? (Seeing as the rest of the HKG flights are A380/B787?)

There is always a chance it will be the older config. However, they're usually used on services to Beijing and Bangkok more so than Hong Kong.

Correct - EBG is the sole 36J/199Y 332 left.

EBG does pop up in HKG occasionally, but not likely that you'll get it. It will be used primarily on the DPS route over the Christmas holidays. Today it's doing MNL.

EBQ is now in BNE maintenance and probably there until New Year making it the 6th of the 27J fleet.
