As a citizen of beautiful Bris-Vegas, I was excited to hear Qantas announcement this week!
As of the 1st of September this year, Qantas will run their daily Brisbane to Los Angeles service with their new Dreamliner’s. (Ps! Fares are all-ready on sale now!)
The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner will will replace the ageing Boeing 747–400 currently operating this route. This is great for passengers who travel to the US, as the new plane features a greater onboard experience.
The Dreamliner will then continue on as QF11/12, the connecting service between Los Angeles and New York (JFK), carrying passengers connecting from Sydney and Melbourne services as well.
Between September and December 2018, the daily Brisbane — Los Angeles Dreamliner service will be complemented by up to three weekly Boeing 747 flights to meet seasonal demand.
Once Qantas’ eighth Dreamliner has been delivered by the end of 2018, they will replace the three weekly 747 services between Brisbane and LA with a second year-round Dreamliner service.
The Dreamliner carries carries slightly less than the 747, however, has a focus on premium cabins and increased comfort onboard. It features the latest version of the airline’s Business Suite, as well as a next generation Premium Economy seat and a significantly improved Economy seat with extra storage compartments and device charging outlets.
