This flight is one of the more iconic flights that Qantas operates. Back in 2011, they started flying this flight with a 747 from Sydney to DFW and DFW to Sydney via Brisbane. The reason this flight was started was because the Sydney-San Francisco flight was not profitable. Before Covid-19 times, this flight alone accounted for 8% of Qantas total revenue making it one of the most profitable flight for Qantas even though it’s operated by an A380.
