As an Australian, I can honestly say, I would recommend another carrier. QF
service is VERY hit and miss. I had some of the rudest and most abrupt FAs on my BNE
flight a few years back that would give AA
staff a run for their money.
Their IFE (now that they finally have seatback TV
) is supposed to be quite good (my sister was merrily amused for a good 10 hours FCO
!), although as Pilotdud09 says, it's very unreliable.
If you are off to SYD
, you probably have more choice in carriers than any other route in the world. Personally I would recommend VS
(on this route you get alot of HKG
based crew who are amazing!!) V:Port IFE is brilliant, and the A346 is so quiet, and the cabin is really funky. Seat pitch is the same as most carriers, 31-32 inches, although you can pay to get the exit row (row 33 IIRC) and there is huge leg room!! From a price point of view, there will be the likes of GF
who often have bargain basement prices, but you get what you pay for. (remember EK
's 777 have 10 abreast in Y....Eeewwwwww!)
Whoever you decide to fly with, enjoy your trip.
