Sydney Airport Lounge

1 November 2011

Sydney airport

My flight from Adelaide to Sydney was delayed by about 30 minutes as all Qantas crews had to work until late last night as flights only resumed at around 3pm due to the industrial action described above in boring detail.
I have been apologised to about 20 times, at the Adelaide meet and greet for the international check in, at the check in itself, at the Adelaide lounge, on the plane by the pilot, the cabin manager, and then personally by the cabin manager, in Sydney by the transfer bus desk lady, the transfer bus driver, the Sydney lounge guard downstairs, and now the Sydney lounge ticket checker and even the waiter who served me breakfast. It is starting to get annoying.

The actual lounge itself in Sydney is often voted the best in the world, its the only time in my life I wished I drank, as you can easily enjoy $100 worth of champagne with breakfast.

Present indications are the plane to Shanghai will leave on time, but as we now know, the airline can cease operations globally in 8 minutes, so who knows!

The extensive menu in the Sydney first class lounge for breakfast. Place was full and plenty of people were enjoying wine and champagne with 2 breakfasts each. Fat businessmen are fat for a reason.
