My flight from LAX-SYD on July 26th (Wednesday) just changed to the old config. Not a massive deal for First but I'm one of the few that actually utilized the new lounge haha so here's to hoping it swaps back!

Just curious, how did you utilise the new lounge. Seems quite dark and a little squeezy? Its not a bar like EK/QR

Its fine if used for its original purpose being IIRC a place for people with medical problems.

I find it a nice place to work on my laptop while being able to stretch out a bit

Now back to a refurbished seat map for this flight.

Mine just swapped back to a refurb as well haha (QF11 July 26)

I guess anything can happen at this point but fingers cross!

Unfortunately, my QF11 Sunday (12th) was a garbage unrefurbished A380.
The only consolation was my cheap AKL-SYD-LAX-LHR AA codeshare First Class fare with 5 month LAX stopover.

Unlucky SFO777!

Should have still been comfortable for sleeping though? Thats the only benefit of QF F - nice long fights where you can have average/reasonable food but best sleep in the sky.

Good points SW7London. Indeed, the sleep was very good and the food was fine... when our cabin crew finally got around to serving it.

One funny note was when I asked our FA if it would be possible to get my beef as medium rare as possible. Without missing a beat. she replied "I'll do my best but we're not Emirates".

VH-OQL (the last A380 with the old cabin) flew to Abu Dhabi on 13 March, and according to a few other travel blogs, to get it's cabin refurbishment.
I look forward to it returning to service after being Abu Dhabi Doo'ded up!

VH-OQC has been sitting in AUH since 21 June 2021 and is not refurbished together with VH-OQL also at AUH.

So 2/10 A380 are awaiting refurbishment.

OQB and OQK are under maintenance at AUH however are both refurbished.
