As an economy passenger, the QF 747 is far superior despite its age. United's food is appalling, their blankets are little more than a paper towel, and I always feel like walking on board a United flight is like walking into the midwest. Undoubtedly the Polaris experience is quite a different story.

United is also starting flights between MEL and SFO, so time will tell.

There are still many flights departing throughout the night. Runways are particularly busy between 10pm–midnight with all the red-eye traffic.

Most Americans don't know anything about Melbourne (if they know of it at all), so hopefully this new route will help to build awareness in SF (and beyond).

I wouldn't say it's a struggle to sit through the 787 flight from LAX to MEL. An A380 would of course be better, but that seems like a pipe dream.

AT&T and Verizon will have your best coverage by far. T-Mobile would have more competitive pricing, but coverage and data speeds will be lower. Google Fi is another good option as it's super adorable and utilizes both Sprint and T-Mobile's networks.

I submitted a claim once and found the process insulting. They want time/date stamps on everything and will only price match Australian companies with valid ABN/ACN. These two steps would confuse and prevent 90% of people from attempting, which to me illustrates that Qantas doesn't actually care ...

I flew economy from SFO > SYD on 17 Aug 2016 on what was definitely not one of the refurbished planes. It was the first time I'd encountered such an old plane on that route and I was deeply unimpressed. I'm giving them one more try before I fly United on a 787.
