It's lucky there were no other passengers in First. You drank enough champagne for the rest of them! I'm surprised you could stand up when getting off the plane!
I once had burger and chips on an Etihad flight and it was the best thing ever. More airlines should do chips lol.Jump to post
Nice report thanks. Did you drink that whole bottle of Tattinger?Jump to post
I appreciate everything you say. However charging 4k for business class in the current climate is just taking the piss, even if it is all the way to Australia.
Very clean looking! The A350 is a beautiful aircraft.Jump to post
Not sure what it is about American carriers but compared to Middle Eastern carriers that food is pretty shocking tbh.Jump to post
Interesting report. I'm surprised BA are still charging that amount for Club and First though considering everything. I would have chosen not to fly though unless it was absolutely vital given everything that's been going on. I would love to see a report on the hotel in Chippendale lol.Jump to post
Nice report, thanks.Jump to post
Great report and pics, thanks.Jump to post
Fantastic report. Must have taken you forever to write and upload those pics.Jump to post
Wonderful pictures, thankyou.Jump to post
The benchmark is Emirates. EY is introducing a bunch of cost-cutting "innovations" that will simply chase more people away. Most people will now go for EK with their superior and consistent product (though FZ codeshares sometimes ruin that) or QR with their very strong route network. Not ...Jump to post
Really enjoyed that. Something different!Jump to post
Excellent pictures. Thankyou.Jump to post
Thanks. I guess it comes down to budget. I hadn't expected the 100-400L to jump in price so much. I think I got my first one for just over £1k. So I reckon £500 max for a camera would be the most I could afford.Jump to post
I haven't owned a DSLR since I had the 350D and the 100-400L . I see the lens has really shot up in price to over £2k.
Can someone please tell me what camera would be best to replace my old Canon?
Thanks in advance.

A better view of the runway at Hamilton Island.
Hi all, Back in November last year we visited family down under in Sydney. The trip was for 23 nights with 5 of those nights being spent on a short trip up to Hamilton Island where I have never been before. The whole holiday was more or less the trip of a lifetime. Hamilton Island was indeed the hig...Jump to post
Interesting way to get from Perth to the UK. Couldn't you have just flown Emirates?Jump to post
I started to read the report with great excitement and was really gutted when I scrolled down and the majority of pics don't show up. Anyway, as you say it is a rather different way to travel to Oz from the UK. I'd be interested in knowing how much it costs compared to Etihad or Emirates. And how lo...Jump to post
The power of free advertising.
So you went on a 6 hour flight there and back for "an intimate lunch" ? Sounds a bit drastic lol.

At over £8000 for a return trip in First, I'm not surprised it was empty!
Nice pics though. Thanks for sharing.
Congratulations on your first First! An enjoyable read.Jump to post

Such a shame but that's progress. Won't be long before they're charging you £12 an hour to park there.Jump to post
A real gem of a trip report. I just love these video reports, it's like being put in your shoes. Your enthusiasm for flying comes through in bucket loads.Jump to post
I have one criticism of the video...
It was too short!
First class report for a first class flight.
An enjoyable read Lee. Brings back memories of flying with them last year. Just one question - why were you staying in 4 different hotels?Jump to post
I love those Jetstar eyeshades!Jump to post
Very unique report and photographs. Not sure about those mats on the floor though.Jump to post
Loved the video, thanks.Jump to post

During the 1870s, William Giles and William Gosse were the first white explorers to this region. Giles was the first to reach Kata Tjuta and named it The Olgas after the then reigning Queen Olga of Wurttemburg. Gosse, however, was the first to reach Uluru and named it Ayers Rock after his superior, ...Jump to post

Being a regular visitor to this trip report forum I wanted to share a recent trip. It began on a cold Novenber morning.
