Before the wheels have even left the ground on the first Qantas Points Plane, the airline announced this week it would be doing another Points Plane…this time to Los Angeles! What adds a bit more excitement to this announcement is that the B747 will be used, a rare appearance on the Australian – American route hop! It’s a great opportunity for B747 lover like myself who wants to see the Queen of the Skies off in style by flying her one last time (naturally).
With Qantas set to retire all its beautiful B747 fleet by the end of 2020 I cannot stress how great of an opportunity this is. Flight QF99 will depart from SYD for LAX on Sunday 13 October 2019.
Here’s what you need (points wise and excluding those pesky taxes) that you’ll need to secure the seat of your dreams:
- 96,000 Qantas Points for business class
- 72,000 Qantas Points for premium economy
- 41,900 Qantas Points for economy
Qantas as part of its transition fleet plan will gradually replace its 747-400s with the company’s favourite plane of late, the B787 Dreamliner (I’m still yet to be a fan like Mr Alan Joyce).
Will you be booking an seat on the second Points Plane? Keen to hear your thoughts.
