My honest advice is that you temper your expectations as it's really not a big deal.

My wife and I got amenity kits when we flew QF business to Christchurch last year on a 737. Is that just a JetConnect (ie Trans-Tasman) thing that Qantas doesn’t offer on other international 737 flights?

I think the amenity kits are only handed out on overnight flights. I regularly fly the AU-NZ routes and never received the kit on the daytime flights.The main difference I notice compared to the domestic Qantas 737 Business class (east-coast) service is that on the NZ flights you also have a blanket and pillow provided. I don't think the NZ 737s have the new WiFi fitout though - at least not last time I flew on one. They have seatback entertainment screens, apart from the folks in row 1 where there is a fold out screen from the arm rest. The meal selections are also generally quite good on the NZ 737 services.

Nonsense Mark. The J class seat is significantly more comfortable (as it is on any domestic QF 738 service) than Y class. Definitely worth the extra for the haul to Noumea.
With respect, I never suggested the seat isn’t worthwhile, but rather, that it’s nothing to get excited about.
@ covvers and nige00160 and sibelieus, thanks for the help, I've never flown QF business (usually VA) so that gives me a clearer picture.Â

We fly both VA and QF domestically a lot in their respective 737s.
