, and Longreach-BNE
. (some segments on Qantaslink) (Over the course of several years, 1997,99,00,02,03)
I have found there domestic product a step above anything we get here in the states. Breakfast on short hops, like my ride from Longreach to Brisbane, on a Dash-8. Or a hot dinner on SYD
-MLB hop (well in 1999 don't know if that changed)
The international is great as well. I would say their inflight product is getting as good as SQ
, but not quite there. I like QF
"onQ" IFE. And the staff are really what makes this airline. I have had some of the most friendliest, laid back F/A's on my flight.
I even like that video they show on landing in Australia, that goes "I still call Australia home"
On my last international QF
flight back to LAX
, I was talking to one of the F/A's, and he told me that the crew's hotel is all the way out in Pasadena! That's a far drive from LAX
