  • Qantas Boeing 787-9 premium economy class

The flight to Chicago will take 16 hours 20 minutes and cover 14,362km.

In addition to being an attractive destination in its own right, and the USA's third-largest city, Chicago also serves as a gateway to the mid-West and a hub for American Airlines, with over 500 daily departures including a high-frequency shuttle service to NY.

"This will give Qantas and American Airlines customers unprecedented access".

This will be the first time these two cities have had non-stop services from Queensland with Qantas scheduling its state-of-the-art Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner aircraft on each route.

Through a joint venture with American Airlines, this flight will offer passengers connections to every major city in the United States and most small cities.

Chicago is becoming a popular destination for Australasian carriers with Qantas joining Air New Zealand in wooing passengers in the mid-west commercial powerhouse with non-stop flights.

The San Francisco flight will take 12 hours and 40 minutes.

"The launch of 787 flights from Brisbane to Chicago and San Francisco would be a win for customers and tourism", said Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce.

Qantas will launch direct flights from Brisbane to Chicago and San Francisco by the end of April 2020 once it gets final U.S. government approval for its joint business with American Airlines.

The investigators provided photographic evidence that the Russian military moved the missile systems across the Ukrainian border. Charges against the four will be brought after their names are made public by the Joint Investigation Team, Zerkal said.

"These flights would make it one stop from Chicago to Hamilton Island or San Francisco to Townsville".

The announcement follows the DOT's tentative approval of the joint business between Qantas and American earlier this month. This also marks the first service from Brisbane to San Francisco, as United does not yet fly this route. This makes Brisbane the third Australian city with direct flights to the Bay Area city, after Sydney and Melbourne.

"For Queenslanders, direct flights into more parts of North America are a more convenient way to travel, saving time by avoiding multiple connections and providing greater choice of entry points into the USA".

There will be four flights a week to Chicago and three flights a week to San Francisco.

The San Francisco services will complement the existing services out of Sydney and Melbourne.

"This is fantastic news for Queensland". Qantas expanded its International Brisbane Lounge by 25 percent this year in response to the popularity of flights from Brisbane.

Premium economy tickets at on sale for $3,988 - more than $3000 cheaper than the same flight in August.

This includes a daily Boeing 787 service to Los Angeles that continues to NY.

"As we count down to our centenary and retire our extended range 747 aircraft, which all feature the iconic Longreach name, we're proud to continue its legacy on one of our new 787s".
