    Best side to sit on landing/take-off from Queenstown, NZ?

    I flew into ZQN in October 2013, just a couple of weeks before the You Tube clip was filmed. this is why we fly.... - YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mxmFCw-Dig The cloud cover was higher on the day I flew in, so we broke through a little earlier. The mountains looked like snow capped velvet...

    Finally got the info I was waiting for from Qantas. The fight was 11,872kms in total, with 1298kms flying over the ice.

    Antarctica Flight QF2904 - 18th January 2015

    Everyone was exceptionally well behaved, and there was no pressure because everyone from the middle seats was up in the aisles or near the exits, and moving around freely to get the best views.

    No, no ice falls, but it was perfect weather.

    WP until June 30. 12 months unemployment has certainly curtailed my flying. I doubt I'll ever see WP again, but at least I've done it once.

    I think we got down under 1500 metres. We did lots of figure eights and wing dips so everyone got the best possible views.

    Antarctica Flight QF2904 - 18th January 2015

    Very happy, but probably only because of the upgrade from centre seat to window seat. I may have been disappointed if I'd had to sit in the middle of the cabin as there were only 6 spare seats on the flight. I don't think Y+ or J would have made any difference to sight seeing as even those...

    Can you believe I forgot to take my camera! I used my iPad and iPhone and took about 100 photos. My partner had his camera but I have no idea how many he took, and haven't seen them yet. The last 6 were taken by the onboard photographer and emailed to me by Accor.

    Antarctica Flight QF2904 - 18th January 2015

    This is the flight path from the IFE but I don't have the total kms flown as the IFE had to be reset about halfway through the flight. I think it was between 8,000 and 9,000. I have been waiting a week for Qantas on Facebook to send me through the flight plan and will update here if / when I...
