    Got up up'ed yesterday CNS to SYD. Was pleasant surprise when checking in the agent handed biz class boarding passes. back of the plane looked definitely full. Perhaps my checking late may have helped but the 2.5 hours flight was rewarding.

    Excellent service. Started with distribution of newspapers. I missed out on one because QF ran out of them but then the stewardess got one off another pax and brought it over. Yet, the service manager apologised and suggested he could get me magazines as reading material. Didnt need them.

    Breakfast was served in order, from the front. Pax acknowledged by name. Drinks included champagne. But instead of flute glasses, regular wine glassses were used.

    With 2-2-2- seating, I was seated in second-last row (4)aisle, starboard side. The last row behind me was not occupied but i thought those seats may not have reclined as far back as ones in front.

    On arrival, flight was on apron for a while until another aircraft had pulled back. But it took good 25 minutes (and they were l-o-n-g minutes) before luggage rolled onto carousel. That was the only disappointment. Passengers exited at D arrivals hall.

    Wish you anjoyable flight too.

    Thanks for your report. I presume they served a nice hot breakfast...I will be needing it after my very early start from Port Douglas to catch this flight!!

    Reinforces my plan to bring hand luggage only for this trip;)

    Was it in 2-2-2 seating and not the normal international 1-2-2 layout. Would seem to be a bit unlucky to get a domestic aircraft operating to Tokyo

    Check in time?

    What time would you need to check in for a domestic sector on an international flight (with no checked luugage)?
    I will be catching QF 60 this Wed, leaving Cns at 0700.
    According to this site, I need to be checked in by 0600!!

    Seems a little too early to me...:eek:

    You do need to check in earlier for domestic leg of international flight than domestic flight.

    Boarding is earlier. You also need to allow more time to get through immigration. Because it is an international flight with additional paperwork, they close the flight earlier.

    I do not recommend turning up 40 minutes before the departure time.

    Re: Check in time?

    Allow yourself no less than 60 minutes. I also suggest you check with QF in case the flight is delayed in departure from Narita Tuesday night. Would'nt expect it but just in case,,,If you're QF Club member, you may use the lounge, located close to the security check point after immigration area.
