QF6001 744 to MHV multiple times.

Saw on Flightradar this morning here in LA that a QF 744 (VH-OEI) was arriving in MHV from LAX. I see that there have been at least three different 744s doing the SYD-LAX-MHV with this flight number - https://flightaware.com/live/flight/QFA6001 . Are they mothballing these?

Another thread on QF B747's ---> Last ever QF pax flight on a 747
The B747's are unlikely to fly for QF passenger service again. Were planned to be retired in 2020

Are those last SYD-LAX flights revenue ones?

QF6001 is a ferry flight, so no PAX. They are going to the desert for storage for the time being. Whether any of them return to service remains to be seen.
