Qantas starts selling San Francisco-Melbourne route
Travel Weekly

Qantas has begun selling tickets for its planned San Francisco-Melbourne service, which launches Sept. 1.

The Australian flag carrier will fly the route four times per week on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner configured with business, premium economy and economy cabins.

To accommodate the new route, Qantas will reduce its Dreamliner service between Los Angeles and Melbourne from the current six days per week to twice weekly. Qantas began operating Los Angeles-Melbourne Dreamliner service in December when it took delivery of its second Dreamliner aircraft. The carrier also operates a daily Los Angeles-Melbourne flight on an Airbus A380.
