What a hoot! Very lively and sociable QF customers/staff made for a great atmosphere on board. The bubbly was constantly flowing and everyone was mingling across the classes. Epic conversations were had as we looked upon the skyscrapers of the Gold Coast and Brisbane city, and the fabulous glass sands of Menjerribah (North Stradbroke) and Moreton Islands. No take-off on the new runway due to inability to update the 747 software, which was a bugger (from the pilot's wife -thank you Miss S).

As the quad jet roared for the final time for this mere mortal I raised my drink to salute and declare "Long live the Queen..... of the Skies the 747'.

Great Post!

I think you should show the fans your epic haircut! Your “headwear“ even eclipsed mine!!

There was certainly no bubbles or drinks of any alcoholic variety being handed out in economy, I should have walked up to business class for a drink, all the economy galleys were empty.

I took myself up to the PE Galley & asked for one!

I thought it was the only low point of a great day - the optics of QF staff travelling free having won a lottery seat partying w endless bubbles, whilst paying pax missed out were pretty poor.

They could have given everyone In Y a glass of cheapo Aussie sparkling for less than a couple of cases9
