Qantas to replace 747-438's with new B787-938'S next year

Submitted
 
The CEO Allan Joyce has announced that Brisbane or YBBN/BNE will replace the Boeing 747-438's currently servicing YBBN/KLAX as QFA15, QFA16 as early as next year. This means no more Jumbo's will service this route by the big Roo as they will head to the desert floors slowly. The new Boeing 787-938's will replace them.

Sadly the big legendary jumbo is disappearing from our skies slowly lets hope the 748 production gets more customers. I can recall the day the very first Jumbo jet landed in NZAA a PAN AMERICAN PLANE

"The CEO Allan Joyce has announced that Brisbane or YBBN/BNE will replace the Boeing 747-438's currently servicing YBBN/KLAX as QFA15, QFA16 as early as next year... the new Boeing 787-938's will replace them." Utter nonsense - how do you come up with this rubbish, and how on earth do people upvote it? The first Boeing 787-9 won't even be delivered until the end of 2017, with the rest of the initial order of eight stretched from 2018 to mid-2019!

Ok I think you had best do research first as I believe you may be thinking of the 787-10 series...the 787-9 series started deliveries back in 2014.."On July 8, 2014, Launch customer Air New Zealand took its first 787-9, in a distinctive black livery in a ceremony at Paine Field."
