Although Qantas’ lie-flat A330 ‘business suites’ enjoyed the spotlight at today’s launch of the new seats, the Boeing 717 fleet of regional sibling QantasLink are also set for a spruice-up.
QantasLink will take up five new Boeing 717s to be introduced to the fleet "during FY14", says Qantas (which means sometime from mid-2014 to mid-2015) which will be dedicated to flying between Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
These will all include a new business class cabin and also be fitted with the Q Streaming wifi system with iPads supplied for each business and economy seat.
Qantas will also upgrade its other 13 all-economy Boeing 717s with new interiors.
