ZNI as QF7879 is airborne from runway 31L at JFK for SYD at 21:27 NY time or 12:27 Sydney time. The pilots predicted a 19 hour and 5 minute flight.

Kennedy Ground wished the crew a good flight and hoped that they had plenty of pilots and lots of coffee on board. Love the ATC humour.

This is where Qantas hopes that there are no big news stories to knock this story off the top of tomorrows news.

Landing on a Sunday morning (slow news day).

Good speed to all involved.

And hopefully no fog in Sydney on arrival, although the weather looks okay! Does anyone know if there are any journalists on board the flight?
