Exact same PER-MEL menu for the red-eye as a fortnight ago. Just to prove the QF inconsistency though (not that further proof is required) the flight couldn't have been more different. While the crew were friendly, it was lights out almost immediately. No tartlet or cookie. No breakfast offered to anyone. Indeed, the crew told people at the start that we were able to go to the Dom J lounge in MEL for a full breakfast on arrival. My response was I'll eat in the F lounge, thanks.
To be fair, the pax in 1K in front of me asked for soup and it was provided happily. The only other pax that seemed to get any attention was a staffer in 2F who had a drink as soon as the seatbelt sign was off. He was as sick as a dog and frankly shouldn't have been travelling.
I had eaten well in town and a bit in the lounge and this time wanted to sleep so none of this phased me but it was pretty disappointing. I did ask for a nightcap and the FA gave me a second bottle (whiskey) in case I needed it - so that was a nice touch.
Still a pathetic menu for a J flight in my opinion.
