New York Flights

Ends: 07 Dec 30
From Sydney there are two flights a day to London Heathrow. Both leave in the afternoon: the 1610 uses an A380 via Singapore, while the 1655 uses a 747 via Bangkok. A key route Qantas is promoting is from Sydney to Dallas Fort Worth, to link up with American Airlines hub at this airport.
Los Angeles gets a flight daily at 1045 (except Tuesday - arrives 0645) on a 747 and 1305 (arrives 0945) on the A380. The old 1550 to LA has been axed. The 1045 flight to LA carries on the New York daily, getting in at 1715.
There are two flights a day from Sydney to Hong Kong, at 1045 (on a 747-400) and 2205 (using an A330 – Friday, Sunday and Monday only). Tokyo gets a daily flight at 2145, and Frankfurt has a daily flight at 1550, which is the second one to Singapore, on a 747. Sydney to Johannesburg is a usual one - a real long haul of 14 hours on a 747 every day, leaving at 1000 and landing at 1615 the same day.
Qantas doesn't just fly from Sydney there is a major hub in Melbourne as well. Melbourne to London Heathrow has a daily flight at 1530 on an A380 via Singapore. Five days a week there is also a flight to Hong Kong at 2250: the slightly longer way around the world means it only lands at Heathrow at 1330, which may be a better arrival time than very early in the morning if you are on a holiday.
There are also daily flights to Los Angeles at 0935. Melbourne to Tokyo has been axed. Perth to Singapore daily at 0745 and 1650. Adelaide to Singapore on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1225. Darwin to Singapore on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1550.
Qantas has also restarted flights to Mumbai in India, from Brisbane, and only on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, via Singapore. Qantas axed this route a couple of years back, when it was flown five days a week with Boeing 767 aircraft, which were transferred to domestic operations.
