Jetstar's first Boeing 787 Dreamliner is now flying daily between Melbourne and Bali, with more planes and more routes to come this year – including Sydney-Bali, Sydney-Phuket and Melbourne-Auckland.
Along with greater fuel efficiency and a reduced noise footprint compared to conventional aircraft, the Boeing 787 packs with a bevy of passenger-friendly features including a larger and more spacious cabin with more room for carry-on luggage, a quieter smoother ride, plus an effective lower cabin altitude and increased humidity to reduce the effects of jetlag.
