Qantas’ plans to refurbish the interiors of its fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft last year (see story here) have finally been completed this week and all 15 refreshed aircraft will be deployed on scheduled services from tomorrow.
These aircraft are used mainly on domestic routes including Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, Canberra, Adelaide and Cairns, although one international route, flights to Honolulu, will also be served with refreshed B767.
The refresh has updated cabin interiors and in-flight entertainment. Cabin upgrades include leather seats in business class, new carpeting, lighting, curtains and dividers for the whole cabin. Previously, the B767s did not have individual seat back screens. After the refurbishment, passengers in business and economy class can enjoy over 200 hours of movies, TV programmes and music on demand, which will be increased to 350 hours by the end of the year.
Eventually, by mid-2015, Qantas will retire its fleet of domestic B767s, starting off with the retirement of the five B767 aircraft that were not included in the refresh programme, which will stop being used at the end of the year.
