Qantas plans to announce the revival of its international flights on Airbus A380 aircraft between Australia and the United States, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Travelers going on Los Angeles holidays could find themselves on the plane as soon as late January, as Qantas engineers and Rolls-Royce, the plane's engine maker, continue their discussions about the air craft.

According to the Herald, passengers enjoy the A380 because of its spacious seats and two-deck floor plan. Currently, Qantas is flying their customers to Los Angeles using Boeing 747-400 jets, but has already resumed service with the A380 between London and Australia.

News sources claim that booking systems show Qantas resuming A380 service on January 17th, but the airline has changed the dates multiple times before.

The Australia - Los Angeles route will benefit from two additional A380s, as well. Travel Daily News reports Qantas expects to add the aircraft in early 2011, the eighth and ninth in a 20-plane order filed by the airline.

In addition to its London routes, Qantas has already resumed its service between Singapore and Sydney with the A380 jumbo jet.
