Qantas is said to be planning a reveal of its seating and cabin layout for its much-anticipated Boeing 787 in April this year, according to a recent interview with CEO Alan Joyce in the Australian Financial Review. The airline will be using its new aircraft to replace the old 747 and to serve upcoming international destinations, such as Melbourne-Dallas, Sydney-Chicago, and Perth to European destinations. Approximtaely 250 seats will be fitted into the new Dreamliners, with others speculating the final number could be closer to 235. While its business class is expected to mirror that of the airline’s new business class design on its A330s, fliers can expect further improvements following feedback received by the airline. The new aircraft will also be fitted with a Premium Economy cabin, which is currently not available on Qantas’s A330.
