Qantas has announced they will be cutting back services to the US in 2016 in order to meet passenger demand for more flights to Asia.
The Australian airline will reportedly be reducing its Sydney-Los Angeles services from ten to seven a week from April 2016, but will add an extra flight to Dallas-Fort Worth.
The news comes days after Qantas’ airline partner American Airlines announced it will begin operating direct flights to the US from Australian shores next month- the first time the airline has flown here in 23 years.
