Qantas to Increase Services to New York

Sydney, 30 November 2005

Qantas announced today that it would increase the number of services it operates to New York from three to five per week from 27 February 2006.

The Executive General Manager of Qantas, Mr John Borghetti, said the addition of two extra services each week, operating from Sydney via Los Angeles, would provide customers with additional choices for travel to New York.

"In particular, it will provide Australian businesses with better access to markets on the US East Coast."

Mr Borghetti said the additional New York services would operate into JFK Airport on Mondays and Saturdays using three-class Boeing 747-400 aircraft with Qantas' award winning Skybed in business class.

Qantas currently operates services to New York on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Mr Borghetti said that in recent weeks Qantas had announced direct flights from Australia to San Francisco and had also added nine extra services from Sydney to Los Angeles between December 2005 and February 2006 to cater for peak season demand.

In addition to the 18 Qantas services operating between Los Angeles and Sydney each week, passengers travelling from New York to Los Angeles could also transfer to Qantas services operating to Brisbane and Melbourne.

Excellent news. I wouldn't be surprised if it's moved to daily in the future as well. I am still wondering how they are managing all this considering they haven't received new aircraft in a while  Smile

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

30 years ago Qantas used to fly from New York to London; a round the world service.

with Qantas' award winning Skybed in business class.

Whoever dished out that particular award was either on drugs or the QF payroll. Nice to see QF do well so far from home, but that horrible seat is a disgrace.
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

I found it to be quite comfortable... granted I only flew it twice in exit row upper deck seating. I might have a different opinion come January where I get to fly backwards in BA's bed.
