The first of Qantas's 8 new Dreamliners will touch down in Sydney this Friday. The first Dreamliner for the airline has been named Great Southern Land following a nationwide competition run earlier in the year.
Dreamliners are lauded as game changing aircraft with larger windows, improved air filtration, and new mood lighting all designed to improve inflight comfort and reduce jetlag. The addition to the Qantas fleet has been hotly anticipated.
The first Qantas Dreamliner route will be Melbourne - Los Angeles, with the new plane coming in to operation from December 15 2017. The second Dreamliner will be used on the ground breaking Perth- London route, the first non-stop service between Australia and Europe which will commence in March 2018. A further 4 Dreamliners will be based in Brisbane by the end of 2018, with new direct international routes to North America being hinted at by the airline.
The new Qantas Dreamliner features the latest generation business class suites. Known for providing a high level of privacy, they’re now more flexible with the addition of a moving divider between each seat. The Suites also have a fully-flat bed and offer plenty of space to eat, work or relax. Laid out in a 1-2-1 configuration for the much-coveted direct aisle access, they also have the unique ability to be reclined during take-off and landing. There’s a new spot to stow your personal device holder, speedy USB charging ports, more storage than ever before, a seat-back mood light designed to minimise disturbance to other passengers, a slightly larger high-definition touchscreen, and an updated version of Qantas’ popular ‘foot-net- to cradle your legs while you’re sleeping.
