Qantas orders 6 more 789’s

Qantas has announced its ordering 6 additional 787-9 from its options list with Boeing.

The aircraft will retain the current configuration and be delivered in full by the end of 2019.

When all 14 are in service the airline will review its 747 fleet and look to withdraw them sooner rather than as late as 2021.

Paris and Frankfurt non-stop from a Sydney-Perth routing are top destinations for the airline.
