    The AVOD fitted in this aircraft is fantastic, if you need it for a flight of this length.

    I will be flying BNE-PER in April on the A330 (QF597) in J. Can anyone shed some light on what seat is in J on this flight? Is it the same as domestic J on the 767 that flies the route regularly or is it the shell seat?
    I'm looking at doing a JASA from bne-per in early march on QF597 and noticed that the aircraft is an A330-300.. Could I assume that this will have the skybeds? QF597 in feb still seems to be on the A330-200. Haven't seen any qantas advertising that skybeds will be available for PER-BNE flights - would think that they'd spruik that a bit?

    Re: J service Brisbane To Perth

    When I flew SYD/PER both ways on VA last year, there was only one gazetted meal service. You can have snacks any time you like by selecting from the Y menu, but you need to ask for it - it is not proactively offered, nor is it indicated on the J menu.

    As far as I can tell on PER routes operated by QF, only one meal service is offered as well. Been that way that I can remember since 2007. Can't see why it's a "cost cut" now when I don't believe it's been any different to before.


    The main exception for both airlines is, of course, the red-eye ex-PER, which usually consists of one short supper and a continental breakfast. That's the only case I can think of where two gazetted meal offerings are provided.


    For a 4-5 hour flight, I think this is sufficient. Having flown many other 4-5 hour flights apart from Australian trans-cons, they are typically only 1 meal service flights, too.

    Unless things have changed, that is only the case for DJ. With QF (at least for QF568), you only get a supper right after takeoff, which is usually a hot dish with bread and a cupcake. You do get an offering of juice before arrival into the east coast.

    Not like anyone needs to eat twice on a 3-ish hour flight anyway, but the DJ supper service is very abbreviated (just a sandwich and a small cake) and is finished in half hour easily. After that you go to sleep for 2 hours and get woken up in the last 45 minutes for the continental breakfast, which is a hot muesli, some pastries and fruit.
