Qantas will operate a fleet of eight new B787-9 Dreamliners when they launch their Perth (PER) to London (LHR) flights this March.  The route will be about 17 hours long and cover a distance of 9,008 miles. Of course, with a flight that long, there will be a rotating crew of pilots and flight attendants who work and then rest. To accommodate that rest, there are both pilot and flight attendant rest areas.
