Jetstar confirms August 2013 launch for Boeing 787 Dreamliner

News Extra... Here you have it!


Jetstar confirms August 2013 launch for Boeing 787 Dreamliner - Flights | hotels | frequent flyer | business class - Australian Business Traveller


Jetstar will begin Boeing 787 flights from August 2013 with the first of three Dreamliners due by year's end.
David Hall, CEO of Jestar Australia New Zealand, confirmed the August 2013 launch date first revealed by Australian Business Traveller earlier this week at a press conference in Sydney Airport today, prior to a special flight of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

"We're very excited to be the first low-fare carrier anywhere in the world to be operating the 787 from mid-to-late next year" Hall said. "We will have three (787s) between August and the end of next year".
Asked about the 787's launch destinations, Hall citied "routes like Bali, Japan and Honolulu" for the first flights, rather than the previously-touted Singapore-based routes to Melbourne, Auckland and Beijing.

CEO of Jetstar Australia New Zealand.

How many CEO's does an organization need?

Well that confirms it. Qantas domestic will get the 788 first and they'll get most if not all of the 15.

In other news Joyce will announce his future plans before the end of the financial year. I wonder if he can find a face cream company.

I think it's been all part of the plan to make Qantas look like one of those big conglomerates with lots of different businesses. GE or perhaps even our own Wesfarmers. That way you can sell off bits and pieces (including international or domestic) to various players whilst still saying 'hey, Qantas still exists and we haven't breached the QSA'.
