Re: Jewels and Durians: With Qantas to Singapore and Malaysia

A warning: This report is long, almost 14,000 words with lots of photos. It is not about the minutiae of luxury aircraft travel. It's a meditation on travel, exhaustion, fear and the joy of looking out the window of an aircraft at the world beyond.This journey began with a durian. That giant spiky ...

Re: Not even skipping the state - ADL-PLO on a QantasLink Q300

It was a lovely few days in Port Lincoln. Must admit I didn't really do a great deal while I was there. We spent a few hours in Tumby Bay (about 50 kilometres north of Port Lincoln), which is a beautiful part of the state. Travels to the Eyre Peninsula are beautiful just to sit back and relax - qui...

Re: Not even skipping the state - ADL-PLO on a QantasLink Q300

Port Lincoln is one of a handful of South Australian regional locations that has flights from both QantasLink with their Q300 and Rex with their decrepit Saab 340's. Of course, no one in their right mind would opt to fly Rex if they had the choice, so we made the easy decision to fly with Qantas. H...

Yes, that's definitely my experience with the A380! Not my favourite aircraft for exterior views. Would you do the flight, and if so, would the A380 influence your decision post-2020? :eyebrow: ~ Assuming it will be the A380, can't see the authorities allowing a Dreamliner (twin) flying around in t...

Hi VapourTrails, Simply awesome report and what a way to celebrate the 747 with an experience over the Antarctic. Was this your first flight in the Queen of the Skies? Did you get a sense of skimming over the mountain ranges as if they were just below you? It's an amazing experience to see a place ...

There was also a First Class option at the pointy end called 'Ice Class' which was the top price range. Apologies, looks like I may have overlooked this when I compiled my report! :whiteflag: ~ https://www.antarcticaflights.com.au/se ... nd-pricing (Sourced August 2019).
