Re: Travelling home with friends - SYD-ADL on a QF 737-800

It seems I rarely get ...

Be interest...

Nice to read this flight report because I will fly this flight in the coming November as well. I am rushed to join this flight as I want to fly on a 747, rather then the 787 or 380. 747 is unique.
