Qantas is running a competition to name their 8 787-9 Dreamliners. By going to the link above you can suggest names for the Aircraft (although they prefer things related to Australia or Qantas’ history. Like longreach)
Australia’s history? So, something like Britain’s Undesirable Stash?
Mr. Brown…haha just kidding.
Captain Cook? Aboriginal? Uluru?
The Aussie_Wombat Is a good name:-)
Wanted to name 1 but not eight! not that creative
What if they were named after the Catalina period? There could be a total of 8, with the Captain Russell Tapp, Double Sunrise, Rose Bay, and then one name for every star used in navigation with the Rigel Star, Spica Star, Altair Star, Vega Star, and Antares Star. Considering I’m not much of a Qantas expert I’m not entirely sure if any of these names have already been used, but based on what I’ve seen I haven’t found any current aircraft with these names. And considering I won’t be disclosing any of my personal details to Qantas soon, I’ll leave these names open for anyone on the community to take.
I put Kangaroo because why not. It is on the 787’s tail :)
They should name them after some of the Great Barrier species.
Great idea. I put down Great Barrier Reef. It’s pretty bad they haven’t used the name on any of their aircraft yet. And I wonder if they’d use a name twice, like Kakadu (which is already on a 737)?
I did names that haven’t been used since the 1950’s like “City Of Longreach” and names used on the Lockheed constellations such as Southern Aurora & Southern Cross
How about ‘Dreamy McDreamface’ 🌚
Hmmm, something about Mick Dundee…
Planey Mcplaneface - The one and only name suitable for any aircraft ;)
I have submitted my submissions. I hope it can be meaningful for them ❤
I wonder why don’t they give prizes like free trip using Qantas’ Dreamliner for the winners 🤔
They have been announced! https://www.qantas.com/travel/airlines/name-the-qantas-dreamliner/au/en
Great Barrier Reef
Great Southern Land
[And of course…] Quokka
Skippy was one of the names that I wanted to do but I didn’t, (Dad decided to do skippy)
I did request for Uluru name ;). Good to see it gets added as one of the aircraft’s names
Vegemite one😂 Would be cool
