Qantas QF149 Sydney to Auckland

Qantas flight 149 Sydney to Auckland equipment is now an A330 service replacing the B737 which used to operate this route. Benefits are there is now seating rows of 2 only side by side in economy for the window seat rows although there is a center row on these aircraft and in business class almost all these aircraft have the new Qantas business class seating featuring fully lay flat beds and increased privacy and direct isle access for every seat. The new business class seats are a huge improvement over the business class seats on Qantas B737 seating.

Fiji Airways FJ 915 Nadi to Sydney

Fiji Airways FJ 915 Nadi to Sydney our operating aircraft according to flight history was a Boeing 737 Next Gen - MSN 34969 - DQ-FJN originally operated by Air Berlin from 2007 until 2015 and now by Fiji Airways since late May 2015

WTF internally this aircraft is a heap of shit.

I seriously considered deplaning just after boarding when I saw the state of it. The business class seats are stuffed, after take off I was eyeing off the empty economy seats behind.

Fiji Airways Premier Lounge Nadi International Airport

Finally tried out the Fiji Airways Premier Lounge Nadi International Airport after being allowed to check in slightly before 3 hours prior to our scheduled departure.

Had a shower first up all good it had not been used for a while and was all clean and dry, towels and bodywash/conditioner/shampoo  and other stuff I did not take any notice of. At first I thought there was no hot water it seemed to run cold for a couple of minutes but then warmed up for the first shower that was not stone cold for the past week.

Fiji Airways Check In Nadi International Airport

Have never really experienced this before, especially at an airlines home base airport as Nadi airport is for Fiji Airways. Had been traveling with others who were leaving Nadi Airport on an earlier flight to a different destination. Their flight departed at 14:45 and ours 3 hours and 45 minutes later at 18:30

This meant they needed to check in around 12:45 and would be boarded around 14:15

Fiji Airways FJ910 Sydney to Nadi

Recently flew Business class with Fiji Airways flight number FJ910 we were on a Qantas code share ticketed as QF391. The aircraft used was an Airbus A330-243  - MSN 1394 - DQ-FJT first flight date recorded for this aircraft was 19/02/2013

The business class seats are good in this aircraft, not as good as the likes of Qantas 330 or Cathay or Emirates A380 but ok.

Rydges Sydney Central

Spent one Saturday night staying at the Rydges Sydney Central in Surry Hills, booked a Deluxe Room at a cost of $282.00 with breakfast included and parked a car in their carpark overnight which cost extra. The car parking is self parking below ground under the hotel at a cost of $40.00

We were emailed with an invitation to upgrade 

The room seemed to be freshly refurbished and was clean and quiet even though we we in a room right against the elevators.

Miller Apartments Adelaide

Recently stayed over a weekend with Miller Apartments in Adelaide, we booked direct with them as is our preference these days and received excellent communications from them leading up to the stay. We selected a 2 bedroom apartment and requested a two bathroom version as not all two bed apartments are guaranteed two bathrooms. We used their car park which is our preferred self park offering and is located in the basement of the complex.
