Your first look at the new Qantas Dreamliner

Qantas has unveiled its first Boeing Dreamliner - the plane that will carry passengers direct from Australia to England.

Qantas has revealed its most luxurious cabins yet, with the launch of its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

The Dreamliner signals a new era for the airline, which will commence flying passengers direct from Perth to London in March next year.

“The Dreamliner makes routes like Perth to London possible, which will be the first direct air link Australia has ever had with Europe. And it means other potential routes are now on the drawing board as well," Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce hinted.

A direct flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles will also be among the Dreamliner's maiden routes.

One of the new aircraft's most attractive features is its reduced passenger count, permitting more space for those on board. 

It also boasts larger windows, better air quality and technology that claims to minimise the effects of turbulence. Qantas says its Dreamliner will also generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions than other similar aircraft.

According to Mr Joyce, the company also worked with sleep specialists, dieticians and scientists at the University of Sydney to create the final product.

The first aircraft of the Dreamliner fleet will be called Great Southern Land, while the rest will be named after Australian animals, places and literature.
