Qantas Airways is the largest by fleet size Australia airline, operating both national and international routes. The airline started in November 1920 as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited flying the Avro 504K and is the third oldest airline in the world. The Qantas name comes from an acronym of its original name. In 1934, Qantas and Britain’s Imperial Airways established Qantas Empire Airways Limited (QEA). In 1967 the name changed to Qantas Airways Limited. Subsidiary airlines are Jetstar, QantasLink and Qantas Freight.
The Boeing 747-400 is an American wide-body, four-engined jet airliner and the best-selling variant of the B747 family. It is one of the most recognisable passenger aircraft with its distinctive hump atop the forward fuselage. The -400 flew for the first time on April 29, 1988, and made its service debut on February 9, 1989, with Northwest Airlines.
The -400 incorporates technological and structural improvements over previous variants. A new glass cockpit removed the need for a flight engineer. The optional stretched upper deck of 747-300 became standard. Lengthen, lighter wings and except the -400D, 1.8 m (6 ft) canted winglets. More fuel-efficient engines and increased fuel capacity. Carbon brakes instead of steel and improved fuselage to wing fairings. It can seat up to 416 passengers in a typical three-class layout, 524 in a two-classes, or 660 passengers in a high–density single class (747-400D) and a maximum range of up to 14,200 km (8,823 mi) with maximum payload, depending on the version.
