As is stated in the link, the double daily was only ever tentative, no “guarantee” was ever made. Here is the actual link:

I wouldn’t read too much into it. As this is for ops after 30 March 2014; a lot can happen between now and then.

QF also rostered 744s on the Kangaroo route only to replace them with A380 nearer the time. Better to encourage people who want to fly A380 to book the flight most likely to be an A380, and give others on the 744 a nice surprise if they do indeed end up with the big bus.

As ever, it should be remembered that particular aircraft should never be expected on any route as there are many factors which can cause changes, even up to the last minute; I’ve even been taxiing for take off and turned back to the gate to change equipment….
