Qantas currently run services from Brisbane to Los Angeles 10 times weekly utilising their 787-9 Dreamliners, the route always seems to be full and it’s difficult to find award space or even upgrades for that matter.
For two months, (January 2020 & February 2020) the airline will increase the amount of services weekly from the current 10 to 13.
QF15/16 & QF55/56 are the flight numbers operating services to Los Angeles.
Here is the schedule, courtesy of Routesnline.com
QF015 BNE1110 – 0600LAX 789 D
QF055 BNE2035 – 1525LAX 789 x4
QF056 LAX2105 – 0500+2BNE 789 x4
QF016 LAX2320 – 0715+2BNE 789 D
The 787 features a Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabin totalling 236 seats. The Business cabin is configured in a 1-2-1 layout with each seat having a pitch of 46/80” and a width of 24.” The Premium Economy cabin is laid out in a 2-3-2 configuration and those seats feature a pitch of 38” and a width of 20.5.” The Economy cabin is in a 3-3-3 configuration and the seats have a pitch of 32” and a width of 17.2.”
Ultimately this is great news for passengers as there will be more options as well as hopefully a slight increase in award and upgrade availability but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
Qantas’ 787 Dreamliner is a comfortable aircraft and I enjoyed my experience onboard, to see what the Business Class product is like, take a look here when I flew it from Hong Kong to Brisbane.
