In 2004, VH-VXO had 'Sharing the Spirit' titles added. 'Sharing the Spirit' with Qantas was via a series of programs and events designed to help Australians connect with their heroes, their loved ones and their dreams.
In mid-2005, VH-VYE entered service after having 'Melbourne Commonwealth Games 2006' titles applied during pre-service maintenance. The aircraft was renamed 'Karak' (the Games mascot).
In early-2011, VH-VZD was unveiled with 'Qantas Frequent Flyer / Optus Mobile' titles and decals.
Shortly after its delivery in September 2012, VH-XZA was one of two aircraft that had special "Spirit of Australians' titles and a 'You're The Reason We Fly' livery applied to the aircraft where various names written on the fuselage of the aircraft.
In early 2013, VH-VXG was unveiled in a 'Bring It On' livery designed to promote to upcoming British 'Lions' rugby union tour of Australia.
In March 2013, special 'Qantas Loves Ellen' titles were applied to a pair of Qantas aircraft - including B737-800 VH-VZU - promoting the Ellen Degeneres Show during her visit to Australia for filming.
