its a good trip report; however the E-Aviation watermarks were kinda annoying. You could have put those watermarks in a corner somewhere.
thanks though!!!

Yeah, they were big and in the middle of the picture not allowing a good seeing of the picture.



I know you were amazed by people sleeping on the flight. But If i was in the suites i would try those beds and even take a nap. That's taking ALL of the experience.



Cheers

Nice trip report. I remember seeing you at the boarding area and onboard the flight as well. I'm not too surprised that some people were sleeping, heck even I caught some sleep in between my 'photo trips' around the cabin! Big grin

Thanks for the good work, Anmol.
It was very nice meeting you and your dad on the flight.



Are you going to do a report on the Sydney to Singapore flight?

I will do one sometime, but because I am very busy with exams until January, I won't post it any time soon.

Shame on you! People payed quite a bit for this flight and I never even thought about people sleeping on this flight. I never even dreamed a guy on Anet would sleep on that flight in Economy

Yeah I guess Suite passengers can have a little nap as well.

Sorry I couldn't take a better camera with me. The thing was that you had to get it right at that moment, and if you missed it, than you missed it so some photos are not that good of a quality.

About the watermark, I am very sorry I had to put some on the middle of my pictures, however my friend did advise me in doing so, as he seemed to have saw one of my photos from the website on Facebook and some other social networking sites, so they suggested that I should put a clear watermark, which shows exactly where the photo came from.

Here at anet I trust you all not to take any photo, not that any one of them is worthy but if you do need a photo than please do tell me, and I can send a high resolution photo to you

Sorry, but I do not see why you have a problem with people sleeping on the flight. Nor do I think I should feel "shame" for falling asleep. A flight is still a flight, historical event or not. It is only a part of the whole travelling experience. Just because people have paid a lot, means they have to stay awake and walk around like the media folks who were onboard? So hypothetically if I were to pay thousands for F class on a flight, just because I paid so much, I shouldn't sleep? Again, I don't see why people shouldn't sleep just because they have paid "quite a bit".

I hope you will clarify your remark. If I have misinterpreted your words, then I offer my apologies and please disregard the above.

Sorry for my ignorance, its just that being the inaugural, I don't really expect people to sleep. I have told my friends all about the airbus 380 and how people were sleeping they too were shocked as well, so maybe with you sleeping, on that flight is no difference. I suppose our ways of thinking are very different.

Sorry if I insulted you there by saying 'shame on you!', I didn't mean to insult you, its just a quote my old maths teacher used to say when I did a mistake, we all used to laugh at it. No harm intended.

Sorry to all those who did sleep on the flight, my views are just very different from others. Sorry once again. Please do accept my apologies.
