Qantas to fly Queensland to LA with new Dreamliner route

FLIGHTS from Brisbane to Los Angeles on Qantas's new Dreamliner aircraft will start in September, with tickets for the daily service go on sale today.

The flights will continue on as a connecting service from LAX to New York's JFK airport.

The 787 Dreamliner carries 236 passengers, compared to 364 on the current Boeing 747-400 aircraft. It includes the latest version of Qantas business class and premium economy as well as improved economy seating.

The daily Dreamliner service will be supported by three weekly Boeing 747 flights until December, when a second Dreamliner will commence services four times a week.

Fares for the 12 hour 50 minute flight will be unchanged.

Qantas announced in August that half its fleet of new Dreamliner planes will be based in Brisbane, offering direct flights to several cities in the United States and creating 470 jobs.
