Re: Qantas plans 3 Project Sunrise research flights in Q4 2019 using 787-9's, final decision on PS by end of 2019

These will be delivery flights for some of the next batch of B789s and are being used, as the first post mentions, to gain a practical understanding of the demands on crew and the passenger experience. Per the article, the 'passengers' will be QF employees.
