Celebrations are to break out around the world with another victory for Qantas.
Qantas announced in the past few hours they will order six new 787’s. These will help expand Qantas routes on top of the planned expansion of Brisbane to Seattle or Chicago.
Alan Joyce has said he wants the final six to be delivered at a rapid pace so they are all ready for the 100th anniversary of Qantas.
This is also a time of sorrow as Qantas will have it’s last good wide bodies out of service by 2021.
It has not been said whether the 787’s will be based in Brisbane or Melbourne.
