Qantas is known for being a very LGBT-friendly airline. Perhaps it’s largely reflective of Australia as a whole, or perhaps it has something to do with Qantas’ management (the CEO is openly gay).
Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras is coming up soon, between February 17 and March 5, 2017. Qantas has long been a big supporter of the event, though this year they’re doing something extra special.
Qantas has repainted an A330 with some rainbow elements. “QANTAS” is written in rainbow colors, and the kangaroo on the tail is holding a rainbow flag. The plane has registration VH-QPJ, and operated its first flight this past Friday.
