Qantas has picked Airbus jets, to fly its ultra-long haul routes, dealing a blow to rival plane maker Boeing.

The airline selected the A350-1000, for its planned non-stop Sydney to London service, which would be the world’s longest commercial flight.
Qantas has been testing the ultra-long haul flights, as part of its “Project Sunrise” plan.

Meanwhile, Boeing is still dealing with the grounding of its 737 Max fleet, after two deadly crashes.
