The order will 5 firm orders + 3 conversions from the 787-8.

This means that the LN344 will be the last delivery to Jetstar.

Qantas has finally made the 787-9 order become a reality. They will take 8 787-9s in the first order.

What makes this airplane better than the 747 and Airbus 380?

It looks pretty much like a 737 or 757 to me

It also interesting that Qantas deferred their delivery slot even further now they will be re-firming up their 1st tranche of their large order.

It was always said that they would need to firm up before a certain date to be able to still get the 2016 delivery slots for which they had options. Last year they decided to defer those to 2017, but now they are actually firming them up they are again delayed by a year and will join the fleet in 2018 and 2019.

I guess this is also the reason why they are now placing a relatively small order for 5 new + 3 conversions. As they don't have to firm up the 2020 and beyond delivery slots they keep all their options open. They can now decide year by year how many they will need every year from 2020.

With all the mega order the last couple of years it's easy to overlook the other reality that there also enough airlines that don't place large orders. They prefer to place several smaller orders over a longer period in time, just to be more flexible in this changing market.

The firm B789 order from QF couldn't have come sooner! The current international network is stretched with the current fleet, the B789's will now give QF that much needed flexibility. Without a doubt QF will open up SYD-YVR daily services, MEL-DFW has been hinted as a new destination too. Endless possibilities

It could have come sooner if they would have ordered earlier and not deffered deliveries by 2 years. And that's not taking into account the delays because of the cancelation of the 1st order.

I think this order shows that Qantas is still not in a real rush to renew their fleet at the moment.

Good deal for GE, order will be probably enlarged in near future and they managed to get "big" customer when RR was turning 787's engines scene for their favour.

Qantas Selects GEnx Engines to Power Its New Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners
August 20, 2015

EVENDALE, OH -- Qantas chose the GEnx-1B engine to power its recently ordered eight Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. This engine order is valued at more than $400 million (USD) list price. Deliveries will begin in 2017.

“Qantas’ selection of the GEnx engine for its newly announced Boeing 787-9 aircraft is another vote of confidence for this engine that is the leading engine choice of 787 Dreamliner operators around the world,” said Chaker Chahrour, vice president and general manager of Global Sales & Marketing at GE Aviation. “The GEnx-1B engine offers operators outstanding performance, fuel burn and reliability that sets it apart in its class.”

The GEnx-1B engine is the best-selling engine on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The engine has accumulated more than 1.7 million flight hours and more than 300,000 cycles since entering service. More than 1,600 GEnx-1B engines have been sold to more than 50 customers.

Compared to GE's CF6 engine, the GEnx engine offers up to 15 percent better fuel efficiency, which translates to 15 percent less CO2. The GEnx's innovative twin-annular pre-swirl (TAPS) combustor dramatically reduces NOx gases as much as 55 percent below today's regulatory limits and other regulated gases as much as 90 percent. Based on the ratio of decibels to pounds of thrust, the GEnx is the quietest engine GE produces due to the large, more efficient fan blades that operate at slower tip speed, resulting in about 40 percent lower noise levels.

The GEnx is part of GE's "ecomagination" product portfolio - GE's business strategy to develop new, cost-effective technologies that enhance customers' environmental and operating performance.

Revenue-sharing participants on the GEnx are IHI Corporation of Japan, Volvo Aero of Sweden, MTU of Germany, TechSpace Aero (Safran) of Belgium, Snecma (SAFRAN Group) of France and Samsung Techwin of Korea.

Founded in the Queensland outback in 1920, Qantas has grown to be Australia’s largest domestic and international airline. The Qantas Group is already operating the GEnx-powered Boeing 787-8 that entered service at its subsidiary airline Jetstar in October 2013. For more information, visit www.qantas.com or www.jetstar.com.

GE Aviation, an operating unit of GE (NYSE: GE), is a world-leading provider of jet and turboprop engines, components and integrated systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft. GE Aviation has a global service network to support these offerings.

For an A380 or 747 to be even remotely efficient on a passenger/mile basis, they have to be essentially fully loaded. A 787 can be as or even more efficient with a much smaller load. This allows airlines to have a lot more direct flights between cities where they couldn't fill up a bigger plane, and not have to shunt the passengers for that city pair through a hub.

Both A380/B748 & B787 serve 2 totally different markets. Both Airbus and Boeing have taken a gamble and both id say paid off even though the A380 hasn't generated the sales Airbus predicted it would. One only needs to visit LAX for example on any given day and probably every gate at TBIT is occupied by an A380 / B748.
Again 3 engineering marvels and they serve totally different markets.
