B737

Qantas Sydney to Brisbane return Sydney

Recently flew Qantas from Sydney to Brisbane on QF 528 and back to Sydney on QF 549. Both aircraft servicing these flights were newer Boeing 737 with the aircraft on the return leg configured internally with the "sky interior".

We arrived at the terminal with not much time to spare due to slow traffic traveling in from home on a raining Friday and we briefly visited the Qantas frequent flyer lounge in Sydney using our status as we were flying economy.

Qantas QF756

Our return flight on Qantas QF756 commenced enjoying time with our traveling partners in the excellent Qantas lounge in Adelaide Airport. This lounge has plenty of room and is new and well appointed and each time we have visited this lounge has been good.

QF 756 is a Boeing 737 and we were all flying economy for this short flight, usually less than 2 hours in the air.

Qantas QF783 Sydney to Adelaide

We recently flew down to Adelaide in South Australia from Sydney on a Qantas 737 flight number 783. We were flying economy with 2 others and using our Oneworld status we were all able to visit the Qantas Frequent flyer Lounge in Sydney T3 terminal. Qantas Boeing 737 economy seating is 3 abreast so three of us seated together and one other seated across the aisle.

Qantas QF 149 Sydney to Auckland

It is great now Qantas have scheduled A330 on this route. the business cabin on A330 is far superior to the Qantas Boeing 737 aircraft.

Traveling this route in Business provides dedicated check in area at Sydney Airport and access to the Qantas Business lounge air side. If you hold status there should also be access to the Emirates lounge in Sydney Airport.

Qantas QF 139 Sydney to Christchurch

We recently flew from Sydney to Christchurch on Qantas QF139 a 737 aircraft in business. To be honest I cannot review the flight due to a strenuous week prior and after a couple of wines I fell asleep quickly after departure and woke up during landing preparations on approach! I guess the flight was smooth.

Best thing is we made it into Christchurch after 11:00PM and had a room booked within walking distance from the terminal!

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.

Air Vanuatu NF10 NF11

Recently flew to Vanuatu and back with Air Vanuatu on flights NF11 going there from Sydney and NF10 returning to Sydney. Boeing 737 800 aircraft on both legs with an estimated time of 3 hours and 25 minutes from Sydney to Port Vila and 3 hours and 45 minutes returning to Sydney.

The aircraft on this route we flew on were not equipped with seat back entertainment units but that was not a problem as I prefer to use my HP Mini netbook, with up to 6 hours of battery life per battery, to watch movies or listen to music anyway.
