I'm assuming its a joke, but wikipedia is saying Qantas have ordered 50 777-300ER's, is this true?

It's almost certainly someone posting rubbish.

Wikipedia is the equivalent of the noticeboard in a backpackers' hostel - anyone can write crap on it, then every few weeks someone comes along and cleans it up.

They've ordered 50 of the 787 Dreamliners

They have options for them, yes; the 35 firm orders have been cancelled.

Hmm... I don't see this anywhere on the offical /Qantas wikipedia page? Maybe you were looking at a wikipedia spin off?

I'd say this misinformation has already been removed from the Wikipedia page.

Well that's very good considering it's only been 24hrs since it was incorrect...

Yep, I removed that from the Qantas Wikipedia page within 1 and a half hours of this "question" posted on AusBT. Thanks guys for pointing that out. Qantas has not intentions of flying a Boeing 777, at least from what I heard.

I wouldn't trust Wikipedia for information like this as most of it could be rubbish and sources don't always reflect on the product described.
