Not that you really get to choose the type of plane you fly on, and perhaps if I flew more often I might pay the extra to select a particular seat, but the difference between this flight and the previous trip with another popular Vairline. Well... no comparison. It is probably down to the seats and perhaps just a little more leg room, but the flight felt like we had just gone to Sydney rather than Perth. Usually the price puts us off Qantas, but when we booked this time there was little difference. And now that we are not travelling with the kids, less likely to be a concern in the future.
