Well after some short notice i was advised that i'd be heading to the Northern suburbs for "Cheers, Beers and Queers" at Luke Chittocks house, if you've ever had the fortune of having an "airline dinner" at Lukes house you'll know it's a better meal than most airlines provide!

ETD: 1900
ATD: 1915
ETA: 2130
ATA: 2200
Seat: 1A
Aircraft: VH-OEJ
Date: 25 November 2005
POB: 7
Flying Time: 2hr 45min

Our dreamtime seats.

Well it was that time of the year again where we head north for the beach suburbs of Perth, Scarborough, to the house of celebrity travel agent and Air Chittock CSM Luke Chittock. Tonights flight would see us leave our respective homes with time to spare for the 1900 checkin for QFL 1, this flight is comprised of all business class seats so nobody is travelling in cattle class tonight. Doors were closed at 1910 and we pushed back for our scenic flight, after a short taxi ride and stop by at the refrigerator for more beer we made our way out to runway Cobb for an immediate departure.

Tonights flight would see us head south west over towards Perth city, turn right and head out towards the indian ocean before returning via Scabs beach for a Cobb approach via Observation City. The climb was uneventful apart from the rowdy cheer of the queers who were getting hungry and thirsty, Luke was the CSM for this flight and the galley was stocked full with quality beer, none of this VB rubbish that Qantas is so fond of serving.

Upon reaching our cruise altitude we reclined our dreamtime seats and awaited the arrival of our deluxe meal, tonights menu had an Italian theme accompanied by as much booze as your body can handle. I opted for the Lasagna A-La Luke which was served with beans and carrotts, Salad and bread rolls, No skimping either, lovely generous portions and lovely hot meal. The meal was served and dessert also was lovely italian ice cream.

lovely meal as we cruise the skies of Perth.

if you think your dreaming...think again!



CSM Luke enjoying a quality brew in seat 1A.



Tim and Brett enjoying a beer that Qantas doesn't seem to serve to much of.



Jade and Dan enjoying more beer in seat 1K and 1L



me showing that Air NZ 747's can fly without wings and vertically too!



Tea or Coffee? i don't think so we only serve beer on this flight!



Luke and Blage in the galley, as you can see the mess developed and engulfed all spare space rather fast, mostly beer bottles!



Air NZ climbing out, minus the wings!



on descent courtesy of the boys!



Luke working hard, as you can see pocket knives were allowed on this flight!



beers, cheers and queers and some fine food!



Jade and Dan seem to approve of the plastic cuttlery!



our dinner complete with coffee cup filled with beer!



tuck in mate!



CSM Luke and Tim...Luke is well known for his celebrity status in Perth as a CSM.



Luke occupying seat 1A...which was initially reserved for me!  Smile



no coffee in these cups!



me bringing Air NZ in on the Cobb ILS with Qantas VH-OJA on the downwind leg.



Blage demonstrating the enormous flexibilty of the NZ 747 as Wunala passes from behind.



the crew with Tim hiding under a 4711 scented hot towel courtesy of a major Asian carrier.



front row: Brett, Tim and me on the floor
back row: Jade, Luke Dan and Blage



just some of the mess left behind by the business class passengers!



after 2 hours of circling the West Australian coast, countless bottles of beer, countless " my wifes got your number on my phone" prank calls and a lovely meal it was time to descend into Perth via the Cobb ILS, we made a straight in approach and landed about 45 minutes later than expected. The passengers disembarked via the only exit leaving behind a decent mess in the forward galley, some headed off to the far northern suburbs including Joondalup while i headed south to the casino to get well n truly plastered!

allup a very enjoyable flight! service was beyond expectations and there were 5 attendants for the 7 passengers! can't beat that for service can you!

A huge thanks to celebrity agent Luke and all the boys who made it to the "Cheers, Beers and Queers" annual dinner!

here is the first image which i didn't link properly.



the stuff is just collected by Luke who lives here in Perth, the red Wunala wall is the identical red used on Wunala Dreaming. The seats are the Qantas dreatime business class seats. Next flight is scheduled for sometime soon..there is always a flight at Lukes house  Smile

I've got the middle row of dreamtime seats coming in a few months...it's a row of 3 seats.

Where did the seats come from? I've been after a set of seats for years now. The only ones I can find are very old and expensive.

What do BA do with all the cradle seats they took out and are taking out of the 767s at the mo?

Qantas haven't got any Skybed seats for sale so we have to make do with Dreamtime seats...how many people do you know with ex QF business class seats at home of any description!?  Wink

Okay, this is hilarious...I LOVE it! The Wunala wall is just beautiful! You had me going at the start of the TR...I thought you were actually going for a flight and was puzzled for a bit until I figured it out. Great TR!


But that was when I ruled the world

AH! Looks like so much fun. Wish we could have "Cheers, beers, and queers" in America, but I don't know any other queers who like aviation, I don't have any airline seats, etc...

Thanks for the great trip report!

Hilarious!

no queers at the event...the queer term refers to the fact that it's rather bizarre that we have a common love of aviation, lots of memrobilia, a painted Wunala wall and a group of guys who sit down and have a night like this! Nothing to do with sexual orientation at all.  Smile

thanks for the replies, to be honest i thought this might get deleted but i'm glad for the positive responce.
