Default Qantas to fly Boeing 787 from Brisbane to Los Angeles, New York

Qantas will fly its Boeing 787-9 between Brisbane and Los Angeles by the end of 2018, with the jet continuing on to New York, and follow this with a new US route from Brisbane.

Speaking in Seattle ahead of the delivery of the airline's first Boeing 787-9, which will arrive into Sydney on Friday October 20, Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce confirmed that the Brisbane-LA route currently flown by a Boeing 747 "will be replaced with a (Boeing) 787."

The Dreamliner would then continue to New York, picking up passengers from the Sydney-LA and Melbourne-LA services, which Joyce said would dramatically improve" the economics of that stateside leg compared to the jumbo jet.

"In addition we want to fly somewhere new in the states – that could be Seattle, it could be Chicago, it could be Dallas," Joyce said.

Qantas will base four of its first eight Boeing 787s at Brisbane, with those jets due to join the fleet between July and November this year.

Next Boeing 787s in 2019-2020

Joyce said that the airline would look to ordering more Dreamliners from 2018, pulling from its current book of 45 orders and options, but "there will be a gap" between signing on the dotted line and being haned over the keys.

"We do need to bed down the (Boeing 787) operation, we want to to demonstrate to the market and our shareholders that these 787s are making economic sense and we can make a good profit and return (from them)."

Next year we’ll have to start making calls (and) there are some that come available from the end of 2019 to 2020."

I think Joyce was talking in the context of routes ex BNE.

We know what it looks like, we know when it arrives.

But we don't know it's name.

My guess, Uluru or Waltzing Matilda

My guess is "Dreamtime" to match Dreamliner

The QF PR was cranked up on TEN News tonight with bits from the above video as well as a tour of the Boeing factory.

Also, ZNB was shown in the background with major assembly planned for tonight.
