    Australian carrier Qantas announced three ultra-long-haul research flights to collect data on in-flight passenger and crew wellbeing. Flights will test the future non-stop commercial flights from Brisbane , Sydney and Melbourne to London and New York .
    Over three months, three test flights using new Boeing 787-9s will follow the planned delivery flight route. Each flight will hold 40 people, max, including crew to minimize weight. Carbon emissions from the flights will be fully offset. This will be the first direct commercial airline flight from New York to Sydney.
