Adelaide Airport Cathay Pacific Airbus A330

25 March 2011

Adelaide to Melbourne

Do you like photos of food? Do you like photos of planes? Do you like photos of food on a plane? If no then piss off because this will be boring as hell.
After 9 or so months since my last mission to pollute the worlds upper atmosphere with radioactive carbon, its time for me to head off again, this time to Hong Kong, then Taiwan, then Singapore, possibly with Macau and Malaysia side trips, who knows.

First of all I have to get to Hong Kong, luckily Adelaide has a direct flight (except it doesnt), unluckily the direct flight goes via Melbourne, which is almost exactly in the wrong direction.
Still, boarding in Adelaide and doing the whole customs thing there is very easy, since its a rural backwater well practiced at people leaving the place, permanently. So their customs teams are well drilled. There was no line and it took seconds.

The initial 1 hour flight from Adelaide to Melbourne was uneventful, the seats are interesting, pictures contained below.

Before getting on the plane, I used the Adelaide Qantas club. This isnt a fancy one, its shared for domestic and international travellers, business and poor people alike.
I guess I am not normally there at lunch time, the food is no different to afternoons though, and the coffee machine was busted as usual.

I took a second photo of the same plane, this happens a lot at the start of these things, eventually I get bored of planes and stop. But for now you have to put up with it.

My plane has an airbag built into the seatbelt. I cant figure out how this would work. I left my blackberry on and tried to make it connect to wifi constantly hoping it would cause the plane to crash so I could see what the airbag did.
