Jetstar to go all 787 on International flights.

Jetstar expects to receive the final three Dreamliners the airline has on order and therefore move to an all 787 fleet for its long-haul flying by the middle of September 2015.
The Qantas-owned low-cost carrier says the last two routes to transition from the Airbus A330-200 to Boeing 787-8s will be Melbourne-Honolulu and Brisbane-Honolulu on September 14.
Jetstar took delivery of its eighth 787-8 at the end of January. The aircraft, registration VH-VKI, (CN 36235) commenced revenue service on February 5 as JQ35 from Melbourne to Bali.
Sydney-Honolulu was the latest to receive the 787 service, with Jetstar’s first Dreamliner flight on the route which departed at 5.55pm (Sydney time) yesterday as the JQ3.
The airline’s fleet of Airbus A330-200s, which currently stand at three aircraft, will be returned to Qantas as Jetstar picked up the new 787s.
