Quite eventful flight 2 hour delay initially due to a technical issue (my old friend VH-OQA)...30 mins out of SYD medical emergency declared on board and assistance called for. On take off from DXB we got to the runway just lining up when we pulled off to the side another tech issue the crew weren't happy with (announcement too quiet to catch everything said) but sat there approx 15 mins until ok then took off. Then about 30 mins out again, another medical emergency! All in a days work for the boys and girls at QF . Highlight of my trip was meeting Captain Richard de Crespigny who was flying , LHR DXB sector of the QF2 i was on Monday last week. Clearly enjoys his job and interaction with the passengers too.
As always my thanks to all the QF staff, nothing but the best from them as usual.
MooLor. ...I went to the Bledisoe Cup game and despite wearing the gold and green to show my allegiance ...it didnt help very much!
Haha, you have my sympathy. But I'll bet the NZ fans were quite sporting about the latest Wallabies humiliation. hahaha, as if. At least you're less likely to be spat on on this side of the Tasman.
Do QF have flight crew that reside in London, I wonder? Would make sense, but it seems a shame for someone as "famous" as Captain Richard de Crespigny to reside so far from home, with limited mentoring opportunities.
No pilots, only FAs based in London. DXB-LHR is staffed by LHR based cabin crew and SYD based pilots.
