- The airline will not sell A380s’ luxurious first-class suites for now.
Qantas Airbus A380 aircraft is back to the skies again, nearly two years after the airline grounded its Super Jumbo fleet. Qantas Airbus A380 aircraft, named VH-OQB, departed to Sydney Kingsford Smyth Airport and landed at Los Angeles International Airport, United States, at 9.40 pm on January 11, 2021. Since March 2020, VH-OQB will be the first Qantas A380 to carry commercial passengers. Qantas Airbus A380 was formerly known as ‘Hudson Fysh’. On the Sydney-Los Angeles route, the airline’s A380 will replace the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, marking the A380’s return to commercial service. Due to workforce shortages on overseas flights, Qantas said in December 2021 that it would be delaying the return of the A380 from April to January 2022. After each international flight, 70 Boeing 787 flight crew members will be obliged to undergo two weeks of self-isolation. As a result, Qantas has opted to replace its daily 787 flights between Sydney and Los Angeles with three weekly A380 flights and one weekly 787 trip. According to Planespotters.net, Qantas now has a fleet of 12 Airbus A380 aircraft with an average age of 12.4 years. In early November, Qantas revived another A380.
