This is made even worse when you are doing same day trips MEL-BNE-MEL. You get no breakfast, hopefully get a quick bite of a sandwich for lunch, then back to the a/p for a 6.30-7.00 flight with no dinner. Not being fed on the flight just makes it a very long and hungry day. Not to mention no " beer and wine is complimentary on all cityflyer flights after 4pm"!!!!!AnonymousCoward said:Dalmien76,
There may be several ways that this might impact morale adversely. We have a lot of people who travel (it's a consulting firm), and whilst travel is part of the job, it would be nice if it could be as painless as possible.
DJ planes do not have as much luggage space as QANTAS planes do. Ergo, you need to check in luggage (or run the risk of DJ attendants doing it for you). But you get no priority luggage on DJ - you wait like everyone else does for your luggage both to check it in, and to get it back.
DJ does not serve breakfast on the plane (and what you can buy is pretty ordinary). If you're already getting up at 4:30am to get to some other city, do you really want to get up at 4am to eat a (very) early breakfast at home?
DJ have made a good move with a FF program and lounges, but if they want to entice me as a business traveller, they need to do something better with the in-flight service.
