Would you be Cabin Crew on ultra-long-haul flights?

Imagine being Cabin Crew on direct ultra-long-haul flights between the UK and Oz!

Would you want to work as Cabin Crew on ultra-long-haul flights? You might be able to in a few years’ time.

Qantas developed plans to launch 19-hour direct flights between the UK and Australia back in 2019. But the so-called Project Sunrise was put on hold due to the pandemic.

Project Sunrise resumes

This week, the airline revealed that Project Sunrise would resume. This will see the introduction of direct flights between Europe and Australia. The first route is planned between London and Sydney, provisionally in 2024/2025.

However, Brisbane and Melbourne on the Australian east coast could also become hubs. European destinations such as Frankfurt and Paris, as well as global cities, New York, Chicago, Rio de Janeiro and Cape Town, are also being considered as destinations.

High demand

With Australian border rules having been relaxed recently, demand for these direct ultra-long-haul flights will be even higher.

Qantas previously indicated they would order up to 12 Airbus A350-1000s to fly the routes. These aircraft will be specially adapted and fitted with extra fuel tanks to make the ultra-long-haul flights possible.

Currently, Qantas flies between Sydney/Melbourne and London, but has to land to re-fuel in Darwin.

The airline still needs regulatory approval to increase pilots’ flying time. But as Cabin Crew, do you think you could handle a 19-hour flight?
