The Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” made it to Australia this week on its world tour. Kate Schnider and Steve Creedy from The Australian newspaper have an excellent review and commentary of the plane. A photo gallery of the plane during its Sydney visit is here.
I cannot wait to fly the 787!!
Qantas, has ordered 50 of the dreamliners. The first 15 of them are to be delivered first to Qantas low cost airline subsidiary Jetstar in mid 2013, despite rumours the planes will go to Qantas International or Domestic operations. The Jetstar 787-8s will seat 313 passengers in a two class configuration. They will replace the Jetstar A330s used on their international routes from Australia to Japan, Hawaii and Bali.
At this stage, Qantas will get their planes in mid 2014. They are expected to seat 250 passengers in a three class configuration (Economy, Premium Economy and Business).
