Hi,

Well this is my first trip report, so please not too much flaming thanks.

On my way to Brisbane airport I got on the gateway bridge to cross the Brisbane river.


Flight number 1:
Origin: BNE
Destination: SYD
ETD: 10:15
ETA: 12:45
Flight time: 1:30
Airline: Qantas, QF
Aircraft: Boeing 767-336/ER
Load: 99%

I arrived at Brisbane domestic airport at around 8:50am to give me some time to check in and get to my flight. The waiting line for checking in was huge. Then i saw there was another small line for International connecting passengers. There was only only one check in person in the check in desk for that line, but the line was short so it went pretty fast. My bags were checked in the whole way through so that was not a problem, but i had to get my BA boarding passes for my flights to LHR and TLV. I thought i would get my boarding passes in BNE for all the flights.

My ride, 767-336/ER

The flight was delayed for about 15 minutes. The plane took around 10 minutes to fill up as a 767-300/ER is quite big. The flight was almost completely full in Y, i had the only spare seat next to me.

Legroom wasn't bad considering i am only 5"6'.

The food for the flight was a small refreshment consisting of, a pecan and fig cookie which was pretty good and a drink of your choice. Better than in the US were you get almost nothing on most flights, depending who you fly with of course.

Flight number 2:
Origin: SYD
Destination: HKG
ETD: 15:00
ETA: 21:30
Flight time: 9:15
Airline: Qantas, QF
Aircraft: Airbus A330-300
Load: 100% in Y around 70% in J

I arrived at Sydney and i had to catch the bus to the international terminal opposite to gate 2 in the domestic terminal. The lady scanned my boarding pass and i went down the escalator and waited for the bus. The bus ride took around 5-10 minutes and i saw a fair few aircraft during the ride. Including this one:

Sorry for the bad pictures, the bus was moving.

I went to the BA service desk to collect my boarding passes for my two other flights but the guy told me that i can't get them here because i'm not connecting to a flight from SYD. The guy told me that i had to collect the boarding passes in the BA transfer desk in the transit area in HKG. After i finished talking to the guy at the service desk, i went through the departing passengers door and through immigration, filled my green form out and went through security finally entering the departure lounge of the international terminal.

I walked around the QF area and went plane spotting, i didn't see too many planes around at the time.

Boarding took approximately 20mins until everybody got on. I got in the plane and was in seat 30A, window seat on a daytime flight at last. But a Chinese women asked me to swap my seat with her seat which was 31B because she wanted to sit next to her husband who watched the movie Hair Spray about 4 times in a row. There was a rather small guy sitting next to me so i didn't have any room problem.

Food served on the flight was Lunch and Dinner. Lunch consisted of a choice of Grilled spiced chicken with tomato and sweet corn relish served with Spanish rice, but they didn't have Spanish rice so served it with Mash potato. Or Hot and sour pork with jasmine rice, which i chose. It was quite delicious but nothing special. Mesclun salad with Mustard vinaigrette, cheese and crakcers, coffee or tea or jasmine tea and chocolate mousse were the side dishes. Dinner consisted of baked pasta with Gruyere cheese sause and season melopn salad with fruit juice and your choice of coffee, tea or jasmine tea. Sorry no food pics, i was too scared people would give me weird looks.

Overall it was a quick and enjoyable flight and did not feel like 9 hours and 15 minutes althought it was probably shortrr

Flight number 3:
Origin: HKG
Destination: LHR
ETD: 01:10
ETA: 06:20
Flight time: 13:10
Airline: British Airways, BA
Aircraft: Airbus A330-300
Load: 60% in Y around 50% in J, don't know about C

I arrived at Hong Kong and followed the transit signs throughout the airport. I then reached a BA transfer desk in the transit area and the guy at the desk gave me the boarding passes for my next two flights with BA. After a passed through security i walked throughout the airport went plane spotting. Unfortunately and it was too dark to take any pictures. Instead of plane spotting i went up to the top floor and got my self some dinner.

The weather was foggy and cloudy in London whats new. We had to do two circles in the air before we could land.

Flight number 4:

ETD: 08:30
ETA: 14:30
Flight time: 4:10
Airline: British Airways, BA
Aircraft: Boeing 777-200ER

I arrived at London on a foggy and cloudy day with some bad visibility. I arrived at terminal 1 and had to catch my TLV flight at terminal 4. I followed the flight connection signs and reached the security screening area, there was a very small line therefore i passed security in around 2 minutes and went on to catch the bus to terminal 4. I arrived at terminal 4 departure lounge and walked around and went plane spotting.

Interior

I arrived at TLV. A women gave me a random security check and asked to see my Israeli passport. After i collected my bags from carousel 6 which took around 20 minutes, i cleared customs because i had nothing to declare and then exited to the arrival area. Where i waited for my brother to come and pick me up. There was a very big traffic jam on the way to Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv and they got stuck, therefore i had to wait one hour and fifteen minutes for the aircraft.

Overall i can't say too much except that all the flights were good, they passed really quick and were very enjoyable the service from both BA and QF is certainly exceptional.

Thanks for reading my trip report.

Any feedback or comments greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Inbar.

Only the flight from SYD-HKG had AVOD, all the others unfortunately didn't.  Sad

Well done for a well constructed Trip Report.

Personally, if I'd been asked to move out of my coveted window seat, especially if I'd been looking forward to it like you had, I'd have told her to check in earlier next time....or pretend I was a deaf mute with a glass eye and ignore her !  Big grin

Is that the quickest/most convenient routeing to TLV, or did you deliberately go OneWorld all the way?

I´d love to do that... but I wouldn´t be capable of.

Fortunately, most of the times I have been asked to switch seats was to another window seat.

And great report!

My dad is a QF Frequent flyer and therefore has heeps of points which he can only use with oneworld and codeshare partners hence flying QF and BA. These two seats were bought using points around 140 return. The route isn't the most convenient but i like flying so i didn't mind it.

By the way there are a few things i forgot to add. The meal from LHR-TLV was breakfast and consisted of some egg dish with a sausage and some mushrooms and tomatoes, which wasn't too good as i don't really like egg or mushrooms, the side dishes were some fruit, rice custard and yogurt.

Haha. Sorry for all of the mistakes in the trip report. I kind of rushed it and i can't edit it anymore for some reason. Thanks for finding them anyway.  Smile Regarding the return journey yeah i am looking forward to it but it will be in a around 5 weeks, so there's still time. My return journey route will be, TLV-BKK-MEL-BNE with LY-JQ-QF, not as interesting as the first, but still worth a trip report.

Wow, that is one helluva long trip! And, sort of the long way around to TLV.

Though, with all the Arab airlines avoiding Israel and vice bersa, there's not much choice in carriers or routes I would imagine from Aussie Land to Israel. The only more direct route would have been BNE-SYD-LAX-LHR-TLV, then again, that adds about 2000 miles to your trip, but at least you don't have to back track 2000 miles. But anyway, great trip report. I would have loved to have spent that many hours on several planes in one trip! Especially to Israel!

Nice TR, four a/c all in one trip is not bad going.

Quoting InbarD (Reply 2):
Only the flight from SYD-HKG had AVOD, all the others unfortunately didn't

Im really surprised that your BA 747 didnt have AVOD. They have converted 55 out of the 57 747's so you were very
unlucky

Look forward to the return TR
