Qantas has long done “tour” flights to Antarctica from Australia, whereby they basically fly there, circle around for a few hours, and fly back, totaling around 12 hours. Well, this year it’s going to be a bit more special. Qantas will be operating this flight with an Airbus 380, and the flight will be over Antarctica at midnight, so the passengers will see the first sun rise of 2010.
If only there were a way to use miles for this flight, cause there’s no way I’m paying $6,000 for first class and I sure as heck am not flying coach…. 😉
