Mile Munchers

The UK is to be connected non-stop to Australia in March 2018.  Qantas will fly from Heathrow to Perth using the latest Boeing 787-9 jet and they claim the journey of 9 010 miles will take 17 hours from Western Australia to London.  In reality it will take longer over a greater distance because of the need to avoid airspace perceived as dangerous.

When Qantas created the “Kangaroo Route” between the UK and Australia in 1947, the journey involved nine stops and took four days.
