Australian airline Qantas recently announced plans for a seven-hour scenic flight to perform a giant loop in Queensland and the Gold Coast, New South Wales and the country’s remote outback heartland.

From above, avid fliers should be able to spot famous Australian attractions such as Sydney Harbor and the Great Barrier Reef.

The jet will perform a low flyover over certain attractions including Uluru and Bondi Beach.

The “flights to nowhere” came in because some travelers have dreamed not of the far-flung destinations, but the flight experience – from the thrill of take-off to the incredible views of the earth from the cabin window.

Moreover, on these flights, Special onboard entertainment is also promised, including a surprising celebrity host.

The trip will be on a Qantas Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, normally reserved for intercontinental travel across continents. There are currently very few flights to and from Australia due to travel restrictions and Qantas’ international fleet has been grounded.


The Dreamliner is known for its large windows, which are ideal for sightseeing from 30,000 feet away.

Flight QF787, which departs from Sydney domestic airport on October 10 and returns to the Australian metropolis seven hours later, has proven popular.
