Sun Dec 20, 2015 10:43 am

After doing the flight out to thargomindah back in November 2014, decided to head back to Queensland this year to experience the marathon 8 stop flight from Brisbane to Mount Isa.

Last years adventure can be found here.

Got to the airport without any issues. Dad and I had no issues with the check in kiosks.
Again no dramas getting through security.

After a quick lunch it was time to make our way to gate 23 where boarding had started.
Since we boarded fairly late, most people were already onboard.

Load would be about 95%. The seat next to us was occupied.

Take off was on runway 23. Quite a smooth take off and only a couple of bumps in the climb.
Ended up with the three seats ourselves as the guy in 26C moved to another seat after take off.

Cruise generally smooth with a bump or two here and there.

Lunch choices were a beef pie or chicken wrap. Both dad and I had the pie. It tasted good. Pie was what you can buy at the bakery anyway.
Rest of the flight was smooth, even managed a snooze for about 20 mins.

Got a little choppy on final approach. The landing was quite smooth.

Once at the gate, there's the classic every one stands up, but no one goes anywhere for 10 minutes.
Waited for the crowd to go.

Once we had got the check in bag, it was out to the taxi rank and was expecting an indian driver, but we didn't which was good.

Returned the hire car a bit early so we could spend a bit of time in the terminal

Check in and security were no issue.

Spent the rest of the time until our flight departed photographing aircraft taking off and landing.

Our aircraft departed from gate 18. Flight appeared to be completely full.

Took off from runway 01 and was a bit bumpy in take off and in the climb.

Smoothed out in the cruise.

Meal options were a turkey sandwich or chicken Caesar wrap. However the turkey was gone by the time they got to us. Both dad and I had the chicken Caesar wrap which wasn't bad.
Tea, coffee and soft drinks were offered. Dad went for the Coke Zero while I had lemonade.
Rest of the cruise was generally smooth.

Started to get a bit bumpy on descent. Landing was ok. Landed on runway 23.

Waited for the crowd to go. Now Qantas use the rear door as well as the front door. They only do this if the weather is favorable.

Waited for the crowd to clear, had a quick look at the flight deck and a chat to the first officer about the new boarding procedures.

Made my way out and up the jetway and faced the crowds at the baggage reclaim.

Again two good flights with Qantas. Nothing to complain about.

Awesome photos for an otherwise very run on mill domestic flight.

Hi Ryan,

I note that you had two different cabins going up and back. One with seat-back IFE and one with the old drop-down screens, although I read on qantassource VZD has been reconfigured since your flight.

Great to see that you were able to visit the flight deck on both sectors.

Thanks for sharing.

I have never had the pleasure or opportunity to fly with Qantas yet. Hopefully one day I get to visit Australia. I have a feeling it'll be sooner than later.

Firstly thanks for the trip report, good to see more Aussie flights on here!

Its a bit of hit or miss these days on QF with the up-grades on the 737-800s

Some are the old style with no seatback IFE, some with the seat back and didn't realise this but found out on my SYD-ADL flight a few weeks ago there is also the IFE WiFi streaming to personal phones or tablets.

I know you can probably check the A/C registration prior to the day, however, every time I flew Adelaide - Darwin I had my fingers crossed boarding hoping for the seatback IFE!

I do like flying Qantas and always pick them over other airlines on domestic sectors, even when they are slightly more expensive than the competition.

Yes it is bit of a lottery with what interior you get.

Yes I rather pay the bit extra for Qantas, as you know what you are getting and no sneaky last minute fees.
