Brett, I don't know what the issue was that caused Wednesday's QF1 to be delayed to today but here are some details I have found.

The inbound QF2 on Wednesday was operated by VH-OQD which arrived at 7:40, a few hours late and would have operated QF1 at 15:55 that afternoon. Yesterday, the Sydney Airport departures site showed a later departure of around 21:00-22:00 for QF1 but was then revised as delayed to today, Thursday.

Today's QF1 departed on time and is operated by VH-OQK which arrived as QF2 this morning. Another QF1 departed two hours later operated by VH-OQD and is showing on Flightaware as QF7001. It is assumed that OQD was delayed by 26 hours due to an unserviceability.

It looks as though there will be two QF2's leaving LHR on Friday 1/7/22 and on top of this it also looks as though tomorrow's QF2 arrival will be late, currently scheduled to arrive at 16:35, according to Sydney Airport arrivals. The flight operated by VH-OQJ arrived in SIN close to time.

Can Qantas bounce back from 'perfect storm' as delays, staff disputes, COVID and jet fuel price hit hard?

In addition, A380 VH-OQH yesterday as QF6029 performed a 2 hour 58 minute flight at various altitudes and speeds over the Persian Gulf following maintenance. This will be in readiness to return to service and operate QF11/12 three times a week from this Friday 29 July. OQG looks to be replacing OQH in maintenance in AUH.

It will be interesting to see if another A380 comes out of hibernation from VCV to replace OQG in the QANTAS maintenance facility at LAX.

Do we know if OQH had a repaint whilst in AUH given it was still in the old livery?

Looks like OQG has picked up a 24 hour delay leaving Lax and moved from Tom Bradley Gates back to outside Qantas Hanger.
OQA looks like it's the next to leave storage having been moved a month ago to the hard standing area at VCV and recieving lots of preparation work.
