BI.com: The technology's nearly ready for nonstop flights from Australia to New York

The technology's nearly ready for nonstop flights from Australia to New York

Australian airline Qantas has the aircraft it needs to fly non-stop from Perth to London, but its goal is to offer even longer flights than that.

The airline’s chief executive Alan Joyce has asked manufacturers to build an aircraft that can fly non-stop from Australia’s east coast capitals to London. His eyes are also on non-stop flights to New York, Brazil and South Africa.

SYD-JNB is 2000+ miles shorter than PER-LHR. PER/SYD-SAO is 6-700 miles shorter. New aircraft shouldn't be required for those routes, unless I'm missing something.
