Probably when all the 717 s turn up for Qlink! Later this year. 125 seats low cost full service.

The b717 apparently will be concentrating on the mining runs, and last Time i hear the introduction of the a319s will replace the current routes of the 734.

The 734's are getting a cabin refresh. In line with average fleet age and current management thinking, the new carpet will be lime green shag pile.

I don't know what the appropriate regos are but approx dates of some a/c disposals that could be 734s are TJY - Jul, TJZ - Aug, TJR - Oct. (2 -3 before June but don't have regos).

All 734s will be gone by July 2013 due to a new compliance with a system that will cost too much to carry out on these old birds.
