My sister and I have been arguing! Could someone please let me know about the Qantas Longreach - I thought it was the name of a type of plane - as in the 747-438 and that there were lots of them. She thinks it is the name on one particular plane. We once flew to the US on the Longreach and she says that's the only plane with that name on it. Who is right please
Flying with Us - In the Air - Seat Maps - Boeing 747-438ER
They can fly an extra 168 mi
Useful for LAX-MEL services
Thanks - it's nice to get one up on her - I'll admit she usually knows more but then she's older
To puit it into perspective; "Longreach" is the name of a model of a Boeing 747 that Qantas use.
Sort of like the difference between a Holden Commodore Executive and an Acclaim, even a Berlina.
Do they name the longreach aircraft? ala the 737s are named after cities/towns.
Or are they all longreach?
VH-OJI is also called Longreach (747-438).

So you are both "right" in a sense!
