The first Qantas Constellation arrived in Australia on its delivery flight from Burbank on 14 October 1947 and the service from Sydney to London commenced on 1 December. The Constellation was the world's first pressured airliner in widespread commercial service. The first of the Qantas L-1049 Super Constellations was delivered on 15 April 1954, and just one month later Qantas used it to inaugurate its Pacific service. On 14 January 1958, two Qantas Super Constellations left Melbourne, to begin the Qantas round the world service, first visiting Sydney and then flying off in opposite directions, both arriving back in Sydney on 20 January. By that time Qantas had a fleet of sixteen Super Constellations. The previous year Qantas had decided on its replacement with Boeing 707s, and had placed an order for seven. The first of these was delivered to Qantas on 29 June 1959, making Qantas the first airline outside America to fly American jet aircraft. They progressively replaced the Super Constellations. The last Qantas Super Constellation to be sold was the first one to be delivered; it left Sydney on 3 May 1963.
