I flew QF
a few times in the past 2 years,
, then 3 months later MEL
I would say my choice for the international flight would definitely go for CX
is far better than QF
, at least CX
has PTV on every single seat. I'm not sure about QF
's 744, but they don't have PTV on QF
's 767, even for the international routes. The food and drinks are ok, but I had (not me myself, but the passenger which sit behind me) a very bad experience on the crew attitude. That was the HKG
flight, on a QF
767, and it was the dinner time. I remember that we got a choice of fish or chicken, and most of the passengers chose the chicken. I was at the back of the aircraft, and the passenger behind me wanted to have the chicken. However the crew said in an annoyed voice, saying "sorry, no more chicken, all we have is fish. If you don't want it, that's it." Then I heard a sound that the tray was dropped heavily to the "table" (or tray, whatever you call it). The passenger was moaning, saying that "I will never ever choose QANTAS anymore". Oh well.
The entertainment is really really not enough, boring movies or TV
series, especially compare with CX
But for the domestic sectors, as what QANTAS747 said, I really enjoyed the CBR
leg. It was the small Dash-8 as well, one flight attendance, a pretty blondy girl
. It is reasonable to have different expectation for a 1 hour flight and a 9 hours flight. However the CBR
services was excellent. It was during the lunch time so we get sandwiches rather than the simple snack box. It was the best sandwiches that I've ever had before, the sandwich bread was soft, and sauce inside are nice and the things are fresh. Then we had a small pack of apple juice, a small kit-kat and a choice of coffee or tea. Just after the cleaning up we were served with the mints. I really enjoyed that 1 hour flight (um...actually about 45 minutes only). I don't think you would say "why there are no entertainment at all!?!?"
The Cityflyer routes (SYD
) are alright, the snack boxes are really snacks, can't fed you up. The inflight entertainment is ok, can't expect much for the 1 or 2 hours flight right?
You can find that my domestic flights are always one way with QF
(I live in Melbourne), the reason why is becuase I chose DJ
on the other way, cheaper!
My final comments, QF
have to improve their international services, their competitors are much much better than QF
. Domestic? Price is more important, I don't mind paying A$5 to Hungry Jacks in return for a A$10 cheaper air-ticket. Last thing, you can credit your CX
flights to your QFFFP
