Qantas Joins American Airlines To Make Australia Amazing
Is there ever a better view than seeing American Airlines’ tailfeathers soaring through the blue skies over Sydney Harbour? For aviation geeks squirming with glee as the new Boeing 777-300ER flew over Circular Quay, the answer is a resounding ‘no’.
The biggest airline company in the world, American Airlines has quite a few things to celebrate recently: now merged with US Airways, American Airlines has extended their loyal partnership with Qantas to now fly directly to Australia from Los Angeles. Ticket booking apps at the ready, all!
The trans-Pacific route has become increasingly popular with Americans and Australians alike with tourists appreciating the amazing experiences on offer in two very different countries. This joint venture will be taking the Qantas partnership with American Airlines, which is said to be the longest and largest, to a whole new level.
American Airlines CEO Doug Parker also explained how American Airlines is taking their service and flying experience up a notch. Now, as the biggest airline in the world, they are replacing older aircraft and bringing in modern technology. There’s no better example of this than on the flagship American Airlines Boeing 777-300ER, that is so new Qantas CEO Alan Joyce remarked that it, ‘still has that new aircraft smell’.
With an 8 First Class and a 52-seater Business Class cabins, plus a walk up bar and onboard WiFi, the Boeing 777-300ER is a fabulous way to fly. Both the First Class and Business Class cabins are fitted in a herringbone structure so that every passenger has an aisle seat, which means no squishing past the person next to you to use the bathroom.
Direct aisle access also means privacy for you, especially in first class where you’re armed with a swivel chair so you can turn your space into your own office if you choose. There’s plenty of space and all classes are equipped with more than enough TVs, movies and music to keep you entertained on the long haul flight.
Alice Liu, Managing Director of Onboard Products is to thank for the amazing interior designs that make flying effortless. She calls the 777-300ER ‘Life Uninterrupted’, making flying an easy transition between destinations. The modern creature comforts have been included, including an updated bathroom, made to feel more like a hotel than an aircraft. This classic style that American Airlines embodies is timeless.
But choosing these styles is not solely up to designers, with customers playing a huge role in the selection of the internal elements onboard the 777-300ER. The details and thoughtfulness that have gone into creating this ‘Life Uninterrupted’ style have involved the consumer. With every customer having a subjective view on the words they would use to describe what they wanted on an aircraft, American Airlines have taken it one step further, using pictures to put together how their plane interior should look based on what the customer wants. Now that’s how you do business.
