Qantas Dreamliners Draw Closer

Take a good look and remember these registrations - At the end of 2017 and into 2018, These are the ones you'll want to photograph.

VH-ZNA / VH-ZNB / VH-ZNC and so on... You get the idea!

Qantas' 787-9 fleet is taking shape at the Everett Production site, the home of Boeing in Seattle. Serial Numbers 615, 641, 655 & 669 have been allocated to QF and the initial 1st delivery date of the 12th of October 2017 is looking promising although still subject to change.

After delivery, is undoubtable that these airframes will complete some route proving domestically, giving us all (hopefully) a good look at the New Roo livery on this beautifully designed aircraft. 

Qantas have configured their aircraft to support 236 passengers in a 3 class configuration. 42 Business, 28 Premium Economy and 166 Economy - All newly designed specifically for this airframe and offering levels of comfort previously unseen on a Qantas service. 

Melbourne to Los Angeles will kick off as the first confirmed international service in December 2017, followed by Perth-London which is anticipated to commence in March/April 2018.

It's been a long time coming for Qantas and the Australian travelling public..
