To embrace the festive spirit of Christmas, Qantas is flying two Christmas-themed planes throughout December, with frequent flyers gifted double Qantas Points when taking a flight on either aircraft.

One of QantasLink’s Dash-8 Q400 turboprops, or rather the ‘Dasher-8’, is temporarily decorated with a red sleigh pulled by kangaroos. Santa made an appearance for the big reveal, promising to return everyone’s missing bags in addition to offering double points.

Just like the spirit of Australia, Qantas’ second Christmas-themed aircraft is a bit of a letdown. The Boeing 737-800 ‘Roo-Dolph’ now features a festive home screen on its seatback TV’s, with Christmas carols promised to be played throughout boarding.
