As travel makes a comeback in a big way, Qantas has just announced two new ultra-long-haul flights, non-stop from Australia’s east coast to New York and London.

Qantas confirmed an order for a dozen Airbus A350-1000 aircraft to operate the long haul flights. In addition, 40 new A321XLRs ad A220s will replace its domestic fleet of ageing Boeing 737s from late 2023.

Dubbed Project Sunrise, the flights of more than 20 hours from Sydney and Melbourne to London and New York will be the world’s longest flights.

For those worried about being stuck on a plane for such long hours, there is to be a “wellbeing zone,” where passengers can combat the physical toll of a long haul flight.

Travelling overseas is about to get a whole lot easier.

Stay tuned for updates.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
