I had two very nice flights with Qantas today

Jan 3, 2020

Nice aircraft — smooth ride

Aug 17, 2019

Plane interior felt outdated and uncomfortable. The power on my seat did not work, so I was unable to use my portable device. The movie selection was slim for my interests. However, the service was excellent as was the food.

The on-board staff accommodated our children very well.

I wish I had been told that I needed a visa for Australia. Fortunately, we could buy one instantaneously from Qantas so it didn’t hold us up. But what if the application approval process wasn’t so immediate?we would have missed our flight.
