VA691 last night, 17:35 MEL-PER

Expected turbulence kept the seatbelt sign on for quite a while after take off. Not sure if it was because of that or the fact some crew connected late from inbound flights but the service was slow to get going. They were very polite so I can't fault them for that, kept drinks topped up etc but didn't get the first course until over the border and in to Western Australia!

Gin & Tonic with olives to start

Sadly I've had this menu before, but went for a different starter and had the smoked salmon. I'm normally not a seafood person (certainly not the cold variety anyway) but I really loved the salmon. It tasted very very fresh, and even though I'm not a fan of pistachio the bed of that with quinoa it sat on was also quite delicious. Map for reference!

Lamb with mushrooms & papardelle. I have had this one before and there's not much wrong with it, but my personal tastes have me leaning toward a tomato ragu rather that one with mushroom.

Sour Cherry brownie for desert.

VA808 SYD TO MEL

Tortilla breakfast wrap was good. You can't really fault the breakfast IME. I do think it is pretty good for a short haul breakfast in J.

Yet to try the famous chicken sandwich. Perhaps next week!

Hubbys noon flight cancelled and he was moved to VA842, 1pm Syd to Melb.

Told him to take meal pic and he said it was the enhanced Chiicken Sandwich so "no point taking photos".

3 pies! One lamb, one beef, one cheese tart.... one piece of cheese on the side plate served with some quince.

All this washed down with a glass of shiraz.

This was on an OOL to SYD evening service.

No enhanced chicken sandwich yet. I'm dying to try it.

Maybe gold gets the mince/lamb pies and platinum gets the free range chicken and poor old red gets the sausage tolls

I did not, had a look around and nobody seemed to say anything and like all good poms I suffered in silence - 1 hour flight so wasn't too bothered really.
