New era. Same spirit. Find out what makes the Qantas Dreamliner the most advanced long-haul aircraft of its type.

Providing optimal comfort and space for every passenger is at the core of the Qantas Dreamliner design which features 236 seats - less than most other aircraft of its type.

The aircraft is fitted with state-of-the-art technology to reduce turbulence, improve noise quality and reduced aircraft vibrations for a smoother flight. Every seat has been designed to offer the ultimate comfort for long-haul flyers.

We have thousands of hours of entertainment onboard to choose from, larger baggage lockers and bigger windows. The windows in our Dreamliner are 65% larger than comparable aircraft windows, allowing passengers to see more of the world.

Preparing for long haul travel

  • Get plenty of rest and sleep before you fly.
  • Eat light, healthy and nutritious meals, and avoid over eating.
  • Be well hydrated – drinks enough water and limit carbonated drinks, coffee and alcoholic beverages as they can dehydrate the body.
  • Move, flex, stretch, walk, run or do whatever your choice of daily physical activity is.
  • Where possible in the 2-3 days before your flight, go to bed half an hour earlier or later to be closer to your destination time zone.

Onboard your flight

  • To help set your body clock to your destination time, our Cabin Crew will focus on destination time from the moment you step onboard to assist in counteracting and reducing jetlag.
  • We’ll be timing our service, food and beverage offerings and even the time we suggest you rest and sleep onboard to help adjust the body clock to destination time.
  • Lighter and healthier meal options inspired by Charles Perkins Centre and designed by Neil Perry, Creative Director of Food, Beverage and Service at Qantas will be offered in all cabins.  Understanding the science behind how food affects the body has allowed the redesign of our menus and dishes served on ultra long haul flights. Expect to see low fat proteins, lots of nutritionally rich fruit and vegetables and healthy snacks along with our usual customer favourites.
  • The best options for optimal hydration inflight are plain or sparkling water, infused waters and herbal teas. We'll be offering customers Rockpool signature infused water, Quench, throughout the flight to make keeping hydrated interesting and appealing. In Business Rockpool's signature blend tisane with Australian native aromatics will also be available.
  • You may notice that our cabin lighting adjusts to the time of day in your destination’s time zone, including a simulated sunrise to create a sense of awake on morning flights.
  • Wear clothing and shoes that allow for comfort and avoid overheating.
  • Relax and let the world fly by making sure you switch off and avoid bright light from screens prior to suggested sleep and rest times.

On arrival at your destination

  • Do what you can to adjust your body clock to your destination time zone, including adjusting to meal and sleep times, heading outdoors during daylight and light physical activity.
  • Seek and avoid light at the right times at your destination. Expose yourself to bright and continuous light by spending time outdoors during daylight hours and avoiding artificial lighting in the lead up to sleep.
  • Get plenty of rest when it’s the desired sleep time at your destination.
  • Eat light, healthy and nutritious meals.
  • Avoid overeating, especially in the late evening when your body should be preparing to sleep.
  • Drink lots of water and limit carbonated drinks, coffee and alcoholic beverages as they can dehydrate the body.
  • Move, flex, stretch, walk, run or do whatever your choice of daily physical activity is.

Note: this advice is general for customers in good health. If you have a medical condition or are on medications that need to be timed with diet such as such as Type 1 diabetes, we recommend you seek the advice of your doctor before travelling.
