Would either of these be good for Australia to be used for passengers unless the army needs them.

Heard there's a Qantas 787 with a Jetstar 787 engine Fitted? Did they repaint it or did it enter service in Jetstar condition?

I'd guess they are the same engines, so does it matter?

Both JQ's and QF's 787 engines are from the same engine maker, but they respectively have different engines. And while unrelated to engines, JQ also have the 787-8 variant, whereas QF have the 787-9 variant.

Two Ex Virgin Australia Boeing 737-800 VH-VUA/VUC have both turned up at Cotswold airport in England en route to India now as freighters they will go to Spicejet.

Qantas Oldest A380 was spotted at Gatwick the other day supposedly on a religious charter? There was 3 Qantas planes in London that day the A380 from Sydney/Singapore and the 787 from Singapore/Perth and also the charter.
