QANTAS Airways has announced the start date of September 1, 2018 for its new Melbourne to San Francisco service.
The QANTAS Dreamliner features 236 seats across three cabins including the Business Suite, nicknamed “mini First Class” by some frequent flyers, as well as a next generation Premium Economy seat and a significantly improved Economy seat with extra storage compartments and device charging outlets.
To facilitate the new direct Melbourne – San Francisco service four times per week, QANTAS’ Melbourne – Los Angeles Dreamliner flights will move from six to two services per week. QANTAS will continue to operate daily Airbus A380 flights between Melbourne and Los Angeles.
