QANTAS Announces San Francisco as next Dreamliner Destination

From early December 2019, Qantas passengers flying between Sydney and San Francisco will experience the airline’s next generation Economy, Premium Economy and Business cabins aboard the 787 Dreamliner.

The change coincides with the phased delivery of Qantas’ six additional Dreamliners, as the more efficient aircraft gradually replaces the Boeing 747 aircraft on the airlines’ international network by the end of 2020.

“As much as we’re sad to see Qantas’ fleet of 747s being retired, the deployment of these new aircraft and their brilliant in-flight offering bring new levels of quality on popular routes for our business and leisure clients”, said The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

“We look forward to experiencing it for ourselves”, added Hosper.

The Sydney-San Francisco Dreamliner service will operate daily, complementing Qantas’ existing four-times-per-week Dreamliner service from Melbourne.

The popular Californian city is one of five international destinations currently served by the Qantas Dreamliner, along with Los Angeles, New York, London and Hong Kong.

Qantas International Acting CEO Naren Kumar said the ongoing roll-out of the Dreamliner was good news for more passengers across the airline’s network.

“Our Dreamliner is the most comfortable aircraft we have ever flown. Customer feedback on the cabin environment, from the seats to the anti-jetlag measures, continues to exceed our expectations,” said Mr Kumar.

“We’ll also soon begin upgrading the cabins of our A380 aircraft which means the inflight experience for our customers travelling to the United States will have never been better”, he added.

The new aircraft will bring Qantas’ total fleet of Dreamliners to 14 in the second half of 2020.

Qantas’ Dreamliner carries 236 passengers across three cabins. 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 more legroom.
