Qantas flights from Sydney to San Francisco now on sale

By · · 1 min read · Travel

Qantas customers are now able to book Qantas’ new direct flights to San Francisco for travel from December 2015.

Services will initially operate on peak days only, however from late January 2016 will operate six days per week using the refurbished 747-400 aircraft with the same interiors as the A380 including the Skybed MKII.

Flights will operate using the QF73 (SYD-SFO) and QF74 (SFO-SYD) flight numbers. Travellers may recall these same flight numbers being used on the service prior to their withdrawal in May 2011.

The schedule will be as follows after the ramp-up to six services per week from late January 2016.

Flights Depart Arrive Days Aircraft
QF73 1500 0930 Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sun Boeing 747-400
QF74 2325 0900+2 Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sun Boeing 747-400

As a regular visitor to San Francisco I’m excited with this change as I’ll no longer have to connect through Los Angeles to an American Airlines flight.
