Tourists dominate on world's longest 747 route for Qantas
from The Sydney Morning Herald
Qantas's new flights to north Texas are carrying mostly leisure passengers from Australia looking to visit the U.S., airline figures show. The Flying Kangaroo started services to Dallas/Fort Worth in May, operating four times a week using a Boeing 747-400ER. The decision to head to Texas was made in part to offer better connections to other U.S. destinations at its oneworld alliance partner American Airlines' biggest hub, the airline said at the time.
