Qantas is closer to buying a fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft after most of its long-haul pilots agreed to an 18-month pay freeze as part of a new wage deal.
The deal, which was backed by 82 per cent of 1,165 pilots who voted in an electronic ballot, includes annual three per cent pay increases once the pay freeze lifts.
The airline's ability to strike new pay deals and wage freezes with its staff is understood to be a key factor behind whether Qantas finally decides whether to buy the new fleet of Dreamliners later this year.
"The new agreement helps build the case for future investment in new aircraft for Qantas International," a Qantas spokesman said in a statement

How long would QF take to bring the B787 into service ?

Considering JQ has already down the the heavy lifting.

A couple of years regardless, the first slot they have is late 2017.

So are the first 5 787-9s if they decide to take them delivery from 1H FY18

Christopher Campbell 1st August 2015 05:12 PM

But if they can they may want to have more the 5 in the FY18 through purchase rights if they available.

"Mr Joyce indicated Qantas could take delivery of new Boeing 787-9 aircraft as early as 2017 to help replace its ageing fleet of 747s. "We are working through the route economics and the network economics," he said, adding Qantas had recently reexamined the rival business case for Airbus A350s but decided the Boeing product was best for its needs."

I assume Qantas will select the GEnx engines for their 787s like Jetstar?
