London Heathrow Hong Kong Qantas

19 March 2010

The flight

OK, so I had a first class lay flat bed thing, theres only 8 on the plane that holds 500 people, and I still did not sleep at all. If you pay for these seats they cost about $10,000, I really dont understand why anyone would pay that, hence they are being removed and replaced with all business class seats.
The food and service was great, they kept trying to bring more stuff which I had to turn away, and when I got up I realised at the back of the first cabin was a buffet area with lots of cheeses and chocolates (and wines), which I also had none of.
My seat actually wouldnt work, so they called one of the young guys who works down the back, who did a macgyver style move with 2 pens to remove the back and reset the chair, then it worked fine.
They are certainly long enough, I couldnt touch the end, you also get pyjamas but I didnt wear them, and a fancy toiletries kit with creams and socks and whatever which I didnt use. I not that the guys that did use them slept pretty much the entire flight.
The selection of movies hadnt changed since my last flight, so I am running out of things to watch, but I did enjoy Hurt Locker (Although I think I enjoyed Green Zone more the day prior? Hurt Locker seemed to have no point at the end), The informant which I really enjoyed, best film I saw on the flight, Up in the air (which depressed me), and Couples Retreat, which I think was supposed to be a comedy, but there was no comedy in it at all.

I also got breakfast, which was a full hot buffet style affair, bacon, eggs, sausage, hash brown, toast, crossaints, tomato, mushrooms etc were all offered, but I had just scrambled eggs, tomato and mushroom (and took no photo, because I felt stupid taking photos by now).
Some of the other guests seemed pretty enthused with the wine selection, you get a wine menu and theres quite a few to choose from, I guess a lot of this is wasted on me.
