• In the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of taking several flights in Qantas business and economy, below outlines the food I was offered and the other choices.QANTAS evening flight deprating 1600 arriving 2135 QF847 DRW - SYD,Business;Chicken in lemon thyme sauce with vegetables (the same...

  • Just read the website as will be travelling on QF859 (Economy) then QF858 (Business) and now has that a limited bar service will be available on flights to the East Coast from Perth or Darwin. 858/9 is DRW to SYD via ASP and return. They also have a limited number of main meals for business class...

  • Have to agree that the food can be hit or miss. Have been with acquaintances several times on DRW - MEL/SYD/PER. On all 9 total flights I took in January - February the selection was either a salad or Spinach and Feta lasagne. The first flight (DR - MEL) I had the Spinach lasagne and it was disgu...

  • From my experience I prefer Qantas, the crew in Virgin seemed a little immature on the 3 times I've flown with them. Qantas' timing also works better for me.

  • Yeah no I definitely agree there's 2 major opinions about Darwin. Personally I don't like living here probably because I'm that person that doesn't like going "outback," but my partner does for the reasons I don't so I certainly understand your point.

  • Probably as you say not profitable. Darwin hasn't got alot going for it except for its relaxed (to relaxed imo) border restrictions and covid restrictions in general. I imagine when Melbourne opens up to the NT which hasn't been announced yet but will likely be soon that there will he more flight...

  • @XWu , I get the feeling they return to Sydney for maintenance or storage as there is only a limited number of these flights to get Aussies home and with up to 3 weeks between I imagine it is better for Qantas to keep them in Sydney until they're sent off for the next repatriation flight. For in...
