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.

Quality Hotel CKS Sydney Airport

We usually stay at the Rydges right outside the Sydney international T1 terminal but on this occasion decided to try the Quality Hotel CKS Sydney Airport which is a 15 minute walk from T1.

We arrived at the hotel and there was no lift to our room on the first floor so we had to carry luggage up stairs. The room was spacious and clean and as we had a long day we pretty much went straight to sleep for the night.

Qantas QF4 Honolulu to Sydney

Our return flight from Honolulu to Sydney was on a Qantas 747 and we had seats on the upper deck again. This is a daytime flight leaving Honolulu in the morning and arriving in Sydney the following afternoon. The aircraft next to ours at the gate in Honolulu was a Korean 747-800 a model which is not a common sight!

Inflight service was great all we had to do on arrival back in Sydney was make it to our hotel and sleep!

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!
