DJ are a great airline. I fly them alot on MEL
. I'm 183cms tall and the seat pitch is fine by me. Here's some pointers:
Check in before an hour from departure and you should get a window seat if you want it and also in the 1/3 of the a/c you want. Check really try to accomodate your request. If you ask for the front row 1A-1C you'll directly face the cabin crew on take of and landing. You may want to do this or not, but you won't get a good window. The cabin crew are usually friendly and relaxed, although after a few flights their jokes get boring. The seats in the first 3 rows are narrower than the rest of the a/c because, I suspect, the fueselage starts to curve into the nose. I prefer rows 3-7. Depending on whether it's a 737 or 738 beware of row 9ish as it has the missing window. Take money on board as you'll have to pay for food and drink if you want it, I would suggest you by a Boost (in Sydney terminal) and take it on board with you. Grab a window seat so you can get a good view SYD
. You may also see CBR
on your right about 20ish minutes after take off. You'll may also get the long approach into MEL
which can take you over the CBD, very cool. Take head phones and you can plug into the inflight audio. That's it really, the flight is about 80minutes long and usually smooth. Oh, one last thing, the female cabin crew take great pride in their appearance. If you're really lucky you may get an all female cabin crew
Have a great flight and enjoy OZ
, you'll love Melbourne.
