This week, Qantas’ first 787-9 Dreamliner – dubbed ‘Great Southern Land’ – embarked on its first commercial flight from Melbourne to LA direct. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the Business, Premium Economy and Economy seats before its maiden voyage. Here are the photos!

Specifically built to meet the demands of long-haul flights, the 787-9 aircraft cabins boast a range of comfort-focused features including larger windows, improved air quality, quieter engines and new ‘ride dampening’ technology that can detect and counteract turbulence. This helps to reduce the effects of jet lag and motion sickness – which is important when you’re stuck on one of the longest non-stop routes in existence.

The Qantas Dreamliner interiors were designed by Australian industrial designer David Caon. This includes everything from the Business, Premium Economy and Economy seats to the inflight tableware. In all, there are 236 passenger seats on the Qantas 787-9: 42 in Business, 28 in Premium Economy and 166 in Economy.

  • Another very quick breeze over how crappy Qantas have still left regular Economy….
    Hooray, they’ve made things Even better for people with money to burn, & still lousy for the average folks

    • That’s exactly right Steegs8319 – that’s what makes the world spin, that’s how businesses make their money. It’s a crazy thought hey – that they’d appeal to people who can pay 5x the price of economy multiple times a year over the average joe who can afford economy once every two years. What were they thinking? I hope Qantas can survive such an oversight.
