    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    QF841 - DRW-SYD SDT: 1235 We got on and left the stand on time but heavy rain meant we sat and waited for about 20 mins before we took off. Very turbulent meant we waited about an hour for lunch. Choice was moussaka, chicken salad or vegetable lasagna. Salads aren’t my thing which anybody who...

    12 days in a hotel and 2 at home? Is that for all extreme risk jurisdictions or just NT?

    DRW airport infrastructure

    I noticed that bay 2 at DRW has recently been refitted with a new "apron drive," aerobridge rather then its previous fixed position on. I'd imagine this was potentially so it could have to large aircraft parked at the same time and so it could reach L2 on the 789.

    Virgin Australia Business Class Catering - Service, Meal times, Menus

    VA449 - BNE-DRW SDT: 0925 Two options, either the Crossiant with smoked salmon and capers or zucchini fritters with roasted tomatoes. Being in 2F I was expecting to get the leftovers so didn't get to excited for the meal but I suspect there was someone important in 2C as she went straight to him...

    Virgin Australia Business Class Catering - Service, Meal times, Menus

    VA712 - PER-ADL - SDT 0720 This was my first flight with Virgin since 2019 and my 5th flight ever with them, being a QANTAS loyalist I never really considered them especially after my previous J experience with them which left me disappointed but that must have been a one off because boy was I...

    Virgin Australia to lease more 737s

    Sadly not. Whilst the refreshed lockers were not fitted the curtain was scrapped in favour of a frosted screen. There's a little sticker that says "Business Class only beyond this point," but no one ever listens to that.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    If I recall correctly economy got a box with some biscuit things. I remember thinking it seemed a little cheap for a 1240 lunch departure. *This was an ASP to ADL so was only 2 hours long.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    I have to say it was actually the best today out of the times I've had it. The sauce wasn't congealed and the vegetables tasted fresh. I was also very pleasantly surprised to have "garlic bread," today. I do enjoy the usual sourdough nice but is a bit tedious after a while.

    QF Seat Allocation

    I am aware of the dash 8 not allowing seat selection, I believe for wait and balance reasons they only allows certain sections/seats so it is not loaded to heavily on one side/end. I was stating the message for selecting seats was the same as for dash 8 flights where seat selection is not...

    Australian state border restrictions

    The NT has declared the lockdown areas Hotspots but only from the 12th. As far as I can tell thats the only area to have restrictions in place other than for exposure sites.

    Strangest flight change?

    Had a few good ones. Had DRW - SYD booked on QF843. The red-eye departing 0205 a few weeks back. That flight was cancelled and was given DRW-PER-BNE-SYD. Return got changed to SYD-MEL-DRW so that wasn't too exciting.
