There's an easy test for this - let's see if the seat dimensions and pitch of this "next generation" seat will exceed those of premium economy on ANZ, CX, JAL, and VA. If it is better (remembering these airlines use their PE on routes far shorter than 20 hours), then Alan gets to call it "revolut...

The location is hardly a wee problem, and the response was kind of crappy....
Jun 20, 2018, 08.36 AM / The best business class seats on Cathay Pacific's Airbus A350-1000
I would imagine that whichever aircraft family (A350 or 777x) Qantas chooses for ULH will end up being in the fleet as a regular long haul type as well. And it's worth noting that unlike the 777-9, the A350-1000 almost matches the range of the A380, should Qantas look for a smaller replacement in...

I had a feeling that this was coming. The A350-900ULR gains range by way of increased MTOW (up 5 tonnes) but the additional fuel required (24 tonnes) still warrants carrying well under the maximum number of passengers. Whereas the 1000 variant already has an extra 31 tonnes MTOW over the 900 out ...

If the people planning the HSR can just make sure that immigration at the Malaysia end doesn't take longer than the trip itself (as happens regularly when flying) they'll be onto a winner.

At the risk of resurrecting an old thread - I have the same issue on iPad - article reads fine but comments are displaced to the right off the screen and cant be read.

I think British Airways runs PE from Brisbane to London (via HK) as well. As GregXL mentioned you can go Cathay, with the option to go Virgin Atlantic from HK if you prefer

Qantas going down the Airbus route would mean they could pick up "regular" 350-900s or even 350-1000s as 747 replacements rather than waiting for the 777-x. The Dreamlines only carry 236 people and that might be a little too thin for some routes.
Aug 21, 2017, 12.40 PM / Qantas to convert remaining A380 orders to A350-900ULR?
When you think about the Qantas experience with "ordering ahead" for the A380 and the 787, I can see why they'd go for a proven model (350ULR) third time around, rather than gamble on what the 777-X may or may not do, and any potential delivery delays.
