“Pleasant red-eye flight to Sydney”
Review of Qantas


Reviewed 24 March 2020

Trouble-free early morning flight (6.00am) out of Auckland, returning to Sydney. The airport was obviously very quiet at this time, as was the Qantas lounge. Staff on board were very friendly and the flight departed on time. It's a relatively short flight (<3 hours) and I preferred to doze for the duration rather than partake of the in-flight catering.

Headed away on a holiday and this was a great start.
The staff were all super friendly, plenty of leg room for people under 180cm in height.

One note for travelers, remember that when you get up and grab the seat in front of you, that is where someone is sitting and you are moving their chair... so use your armrests to get in and out. Not the airlines issue, but just a personal tip for travelers.

Highly recommended flight experience.

Online entertainment and drinks - cabin staff were so kind to give me a free wine. Thanks guys. They must have felt compassionate towards me as I was sat next to my mother in law.

Seriously impressed with the 3rd leg of our journey with Qantas. Flight left early and arrived early at our destination with bags off the plane and circling the carousel before we reached the collection area as the first few rows from the plane.

Qantas Wi-Fi was available and worked well, enjoyable snacks and drink provided and great service. I note the crew do look tired on QF701 trips as it's their last leg for the day, their service doesn't waver though. Great flight, usually busy service too.

Whilst this was a connection flight in place of a cancelled flight, we were fortunate enough to be scheduled a A330-300 aircraft for this flight; in total we had less than 60 on the aircraft from SYD to MEL.

Meal (Dinner) was extremely tasty, seat was extremely comfortable, seatback screen was larger than my personal device so it could just charge up for our next flight.

The A333 is a favourite aircraft of mine and usually scheduled between East and West coast flights with Qantas on domestic network between International schedules: Mel-Per, Syd-Per, Syd-Cns & Syd-Mel.

Flight was smooth and ran on time, plenty of space on board as well.
