I had arrived in Bangkok on Royal Jordanian - the report is here - http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ums/trip_reports/read.main/130131/. Once off the flight, I immediately proceeded to the Qantas/British Airways Business lounge in order to get my boarding pass for my next sector. I'd booked the flight in Economy Class, and I had put in an upgrade request to both Business Class (40,000 points) and Premium Economy (25,000 points). I assumed I wouldn't get Business Class, as this is a busy time of the year...

When I checked my account while in transit in Budapest, I noticed my points had been taken and that I'd be flying in Business Class on the sector. Naturally, I was very pleased with this! While checking in, I asked if any upper deck seats were available and they had one left - 11K - first row window. I've only ever sat in row 11 and row 16 (exit row) on the upper deck, so I was very happy with this. These rows have pull out PTVs, as opposed to them being in the seat in front - and they also have more legroom. Next, I was informed that the flight was delayed by 2 hours - this was also no problem. The lounge looked as it always does, and I made a call to my parents to let them know I'd be late into Sydney.

As I'd been travelling for 24 hours at this stage, the first thing I did was to hit the showers. The shower rooms have a sink, toilet, shower and Molton Brown products - and a hair dryer. I had a lovely shower, and then grabbed a coke and sat down for some free wireless Internet. Quite frankly, it was as slow as a 56k dialup connection and I was most disappointed. Even when the lounge emptied of people (who were travelling on the on time BA9 to Sydney) it was still slow.   

I decided on a little snack, and hit the very well stocked food section.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image002-2.jpg

As the Internet, was so slow, I decided to see if the PCs in the lounge were any quicker - after all, it might have been my laptop acting up.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image000-2.jpg

Alas, it wasn't - they were just as slow. After a while, I decided to hit the toilets, and here's a lovely picture of all the basins. Hand wash and cream are also Molton Brown.



The lounge filled up around 7pm, which meant that our aircraft had arrived from London and people were hitting the lounge during the turnaround. Around 7:20pm I left for the gate. My bag was scanned at one checkpoint, and then at the entrance to the gate people had a bit of a rifle through it. Being free of contraband, I was allowed to proceed to the gate lounge.

Soon enough we were permitted to board. There are dual aerobridges in Bangkok, so First and Business passengers board through L1 and Economy through L2. I was quickly on board and proceeded upstairs, where my boarding pass was checked. I threw my bag into the overhead locker, and took a quick snap of my seat.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image004-2.jpg

Once on board, we were given our amenity kits, I quickly hit the toilet, and then sat down. Menus were already on our armrests, and I filled in the breakfast card. These are like the ones in hotels - you tick off what you want and they bring it at breakfast time. Very nice! I had a pre-take off champagne, and next we had the safety demonstration. It sounds like a cliche, but it's like being home already once I am on board a Qantas flight. While waiting for take off, I took advantage of the Skybed's massage function for a bit of a back massage. Soon enough, we were in the air.

There's a lot of leg room in row 11...

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image009-3.jpg

... and of course, being on the upper deck, you also get storage space next to you.



Being security conscious, there is a camera in the roof so that the cockpit crew can see who is knocking on the door. The door has a keycode to allow entry as well.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image012-3.jpg

Next to me of course were seats 11A and 11B.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image011-2.jpg

As soon as we were in the air, I had my PTV out and I decided to watch Stop Loss, which has my favourite actor in it, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image007-3.jpg

After a little while, we were handed our immigration cards for Sydney, along with a Fast-Track immigration card.

Qantas now give out pyjamas to Business Class passengers on overnight flights, and these are by Australian designer Peter Morrissey who also created the Qantas uniforms. The pyjamas are grey, with the Qantas kangaroo in black on the front. They also have a handwritten message from the designer printed on them, which says "I wish you beautiful travels to dreamland". Many people changed into their pyjamas; I kept mine for later.

Hot towels were distributed, and dinner was served next. The Entree (starter to the Americans) was Salad of Hot Smoked Salmon with Caper Relish. Apologies for the lighting in the next pictures - the LED lighting had changed the cabin to fairly dim by this stage and I didn't think to use my in seat light.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image014-3.jpg

For Main Course (entree to the Americans) I had Thai Beef Stir Fry with Chillies, Jasmine Rice and Asian Greens. It was rather nice!

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image015-2.jpg

Dessert was Pistachio, Yoghurt and Cardamom Cake with Lime Syrup. I finished it, then remembered I should have taken a photo! Oh well, it was that nice. I had red wine with the meal, and this was topped up a couple of times along the way.

Once my movie finished, I decided to watch Bucket List. By now the lights were dimmed down all the way. Partially into the movie, I got restless so I decided to have a bit of a look around the aircraft, since most people were now asleep.

On my way downstairs, I found the cabin lighting panel. I didn't touch it though  



I went downstairs...



To have a look at the Business Class bar setup. This is self-service, so you can get drinks and food without having to ask.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image016-1.jpg

While downstairs, I popped into the loo. They're kitted out with flower arrangements, for that quality feel.



They also feature both hot and cold water  

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image019-3.jpg

Moving back upstairs, I took a couple of photos of the Upper Deck galley, as the flight attendant was away fixing someone's PTV issues. This is the back wall...



... and this is just beside the curtain. Well stocked for midnight snackers who come visiting requesting more champagne, wine, or food.



I chatted to the flight attendant for a while, and he was kind enough to get me a couple of gifts for a certain person I know in Scotland. They basically filled up my bag. During our chat, I found out he'd been with Qantas for 13 years and had previously been a school teacher. A friend of his recommended he go for the job, and he got it and started work 9 days later - he believes because he speaks German.

I went back to my seat and tried to restart my movie and it didn't work, so I put the Skybed into the flat position and had a bit of a nap. God it was comfortable! Even though the bed is angled, it feels flat as the aircraft flies slightly nose up. Such a contrast to the RJ seats!

After a while, I tried my movie again and it didn't work. I popped back to the galley and the now female flight attendant told me that the AVOD for the entire aircraft was out. She was very apologetic and offered me a drink so I took some champagne. She also said that it happened all the time, which I've also heard. Not 5 minutes later, my seat mate managed to spill my champagne all over me while trying to get his PTV out to see the map. Not happy Jan! I got a refill.

I decided to take a quick picture of the water bottle holder, light and privacy screen in the Skybed.



By now people were beginning to get up, and it was time for breakfast. The ubiquitous non-slip grey Business Class tray contained a criossant, a fruit salad with yoghurt, coffee and a smoothie.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image028-1.jpg

I noticed that our ground speed was particularly fast, at one point reaching 1,100km/h, so of course I took a picture to prove it!

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image029-1.jpg

The flight was scheduled to be over 9 hours, however we were told on departure that it would be 8 hours - so presumably we had a nice tail wind.

Soon enough, the cabin was cleared, and we descended into Sydney. On arrival, the CSD apologised for the AVOD not working. Apparently only a reboot on the ground could have fixed it. He also apologised to the passengers who had come from London, as the same thing had happened on that sector. Needless to say, I've sent a mail to Qantas asking what compensation I can expect.

As we taxiied to the stand, we passed an SQ A380 and other assorted aircraft.

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/ClassicLover/Image030-2.jpg

In the end, we arrived an hour and a half late. This was a blessing in disguise, as it meant we missed the usual rush. I was through Passport control in less than 5 minutes, and then waited at the carousel. While there, my immigration card was stamped by a roaming officer, and the quarantine roving officer also marked my card. They advised me to go through the "D" line for domestic passengers, which meant I missed all of that hassle. We touched down at 7:30am and I was out of the airport and at home at 8:30am. Not bad at all!

Qantas once again rammed home how different a top quality airline is compared to a "normal" airline. After flying RJ and MA previously, the difference was chalk and cheese. The Skybed is still wonderfully comfortable. The LED lighting, general service, pyjamas and all the rest really help to set the airline apart from its competitors. The whole service oozes quality, and while not perfect (AVOD not working), it was certainly head and shoulders above the other airlines. Of course, Qantas do charge appropriately for the additional quality, and I have to say that it's worth it. Can't wait to try the new product on the A380 - but that won't be until next year.

Please feel free to leave comments and questions - I enjoy reading them - it makes the reports worth doing to know that people read them. Cheers!

A Nice detailed report with great pics Top work!

I really love the LED lighting and wish it was present through out the aircraft its aweful to see the gentle glow from buisness when your down the back only to have the normal lighting blind you several seconds later lol, be cool to have it in home too lol!

Good news though; The grey non slip trays are going!!! Thank god and not a moment too soon! not sure what is replacing them hopefully a linen covered tray! They were never a good idea anyway as they lost all their non slip powers when they got wet, not overly clever when clearing/serving drinks eh?

All in all great report looking forward to my next QF flight now!!

Awesome report! I really enjoyed reading it. I know how it feels to spend so much time in the air to get home as Hawaiians and Australians are kind of in the same boat. We live SO far from everywhere! I must say, that was a very creative itinerary that you put together to get to SYD.
I'll be heading back to SYD in late August. If you are still there, we'll have to meet for a drink!

Thanks again for a great report!

Aloha,

Great last TR.

Pity about the drink your seat mate spilled all over you, and really bad about the PTVs, but hope you will get a great compensation.

1100km/h isnt bad at all  Wink. When I flew from LAX to LHR with BA two years ago we also reached such cruise speed.



Thank you for sharing

I am so pleased about that! I wrote a Trip Report just after the trays came in and I basically rubbished them saying they were pretty crap and didn't suit the service level of the class. None too soon really. I suppose they had to get rid of them due to the kangaroo change anyway  Smile

Hey classiclover,

Glad you enjoyed our service at Qantas. We work hard to satisfy!!

Anyways, the new grey trays DO have the new Kangroo on them. The reason they are changing is because of BOTH passenger and crew feedback. They are absolutely terrible and look cheap. Ill keep you posted on the new trays which will be debuting on A380 with the newer Y/C trays and glassware!

Kind regards

Anybody ever experienced QF 29 in J? I'm joining the flight from HKG-LHR (as it originated in MEL).

By the looks of your breakfast, mate, I think I ought to stock up at the lounge beforehand. I think I will get both Breakfast and Lunch as it arrives in LHR at 1330p. Hope lunch will be a bit more substantial than breakfast.

When you check-in, try for row 16, this has the best legroom in J on the aircraft, since it's exit row. Failing that, ask for row 11. They may be available when you check-in.

Just to update those who care -

On my return to Dublin, I had a letter from Qantas stating that they were sorry that my inflight entertainment wasn't working.

I will quote the end of the letter -

"In light of your disappointing experience I would like to offer you the opportunity to dine as a guest of Qantas at the restaurant of your choice to the value of EUR60.00 as a gesture of goodwill. Once you have dined please send the receipt to the address below and we will reimburse you the amount with a cheque issued in Euros."

Pretty classy way to apologise - rather than just handing you money or a voucher for Qantas.

Full marks for that!

Hey! That was an awesome trip report!

I have also recently been on that flight on the same sector (QF 2, BKK-SYD) the only difference i was in Economy  Sad .... I did that trip in April this year and i posted a trip report on it which was my debut tr!!!! lol

The time i was on this flight in April was my second time on this particular flight. Normally i am full of praise for my national carrier but as i said in my TR that flight was by far my worst ever Qantas International Leg i have ever been on. The only reason being was that the Cabin Crew really didnt seem as though any of them wanted to be there and thus, passed the message swiftly onto us, the passengers. Throughout the flight it seemed as though everything was just too much trouble. I mean they even forgot to offer my mother and i drinks with Dinner which ended in us yelling across 3 rows of seats full of passengers. Not only this but at the time of serving or throwing dinner at us, they literally tossed our Ice Cream sticks across the seats landing on our Tray Tables when we had only just been given our dinner! Therefore by the time we actuallly got to our dinner desert was milk and bits of chocolate...


Sorry for my rant but that trip really scarred my opinion on Qantas i really just wanted to get off that plane in Sydney!

Never the less a great trip report! Glas YOU enjoyed it.

29 ClassicLover : Oh, I'll definitely keep an eye out for that Not sure yet... I like to use the points either for upgrades or for "free" flights in the premium cabins
