Qantas formally unveiled the newly named VH-ZNA, Great Southern Land, at Boeing’s Everett delivery facility yesterday.
Designed to carry 236 passengers across 42 business class, 28 premium economy and 166 economy. laid out in 1-2-1, 2-3-2 and 3-3-3 respectively, which is pretty standard for 787.
The seat width in economy suffers, as they all do on Dreamliners – just 17.2″ wide with a 32″ pitch, they don’t hit the headlines for generosity of space.
I am a big fan of 787-9’s, I’ve flown a few now, and while I love Qantas as a brand and the new livery on the 789’s looks superb, the interiors seem a little bit Grade-2, especially compared to some of its direct competitors.
