Qantas has reportedly had some level of problems with PER, DRW and CBR in recent years. The DRW and CBR issues are just $$$. The PER issues are more visable.

If the JQ planes are transferred to Qantas, I hope they remove some of the seats. Being cramped into Jetstar seating doesn’t appeal.

Let's all bear in mind that the "Jetstar handing Boeing 787s over to Qantas" is for now pure speculation based on groundless gossip, without source, and as rumoury as a rumour can get.
Did they change the seats when they transfered the A330s, or wait for the A330 fleet refit?

its everywhere I think, remember Canberra Airport parking a truck behind a 737 so it couldn't depart?!
I can't see JQ moving all 788's to QF, but with the A321LR they might not need as many 788's as they do today. I'm also not sure of the value proposition of some of the Asian routes being JQ only and not QF, (Vietnam comes to mind) or where both brands operate (SIN/BKK for example)

Some cities only have JQ, others may be QF mainline only and a few have both brands in depending on a number of factors including yields, load factor and whether if the city is a "hub" for the QF group.

Might also be that the Jetstar 787's are getting close to their D Checks and as per the A330's, they get moved across to Qantas just before in order to keep the cost off Jetstar's books. There is more than one way to make an airline look profitable.
