Boeing's 787 Dreamliner aircraft are some of the most modern and most well-liked planes currently gracing the skies. As more are made, the 787s are filling new routes for airlines all over the world and are replacing older, less-efficient aircraft on major long-haul routes.
Which routes can you fly on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner from Australia?
At the time of writing (December 2019), 17 airlines fly their Dreamliners into Australia, with at least one of them flying into every state except Tasmania. And if you want to hop on a Dreamliner, there are more than 50 routes flying to everywhere from Tokyo to Santiago for you to take your pick from. One particularly noteworthy route is Qantas' daily Melbourne-Perth-London service (though some passengers from Melbourne won't get the 787 for the whole journey).

Will more Boeing 787 Dreamliner routes be added?
As airlines add more and more of the new planes to their fleets, we're bound to see more services open up using the 787 in Australia.
Carriers that already use the Dreamliner to fly into Australia, like United and Singapore Airlines, are still waiting to get their hands on more 787-10s, so it's possible that we'll see more routes open up from them as their fleets grow.
Why all the hype about the Boeing 787 Dreamliner?
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has a number of features to make travellers excited. Without going fully into the technical details, the Dreamliner has the following features:
- The largest windows of any comparable aircraft
- Quieter than comparable planes
- Reduces jet lag
- Lower cabin pressure and higher humidity level (which can mean less fatigue and fewer headaches)
- More fuel-efficient
- Can be used for longer routes (such as Perth to London)
What's the difference between the 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10?
One of the major differences between the 787 variants is the size. The 787-8 is the smallest of the three, with the planes increasing in size and seating capacity as you go up to the 787-9 and 787-10.
