Qantas’ record-breaking route from Sydney to Dallas Ft. Worth is to be upgraded to Airbus A380 equipment from 29 September.
The route is currently operated by a Boeing 747-400ER six times weekly, and recently featured in our Greatest Flights series as it’s now the longest passenger flight in the world.
With the upgrade to A380, the flight will no longer need to stop in Brisbane on the inbound leg.
Coincidentally, this will also give Qantas the crown for the longest A380 flight. Currently Emirates holds the record on its Dubai – Los Angeles route.
