ADL-BNE Return Qantas 737-800

Postby Ryan Hothersall » Sun Dec 20, 2015 7:56 pm

After doing the flight out to thargomindah back in November 2014, decided to head back to Queensland this year to experience the marathon 8 stop flight from Brisbane to Mount Isa.

Last years adventure can be found here.

26A

Got to the airport without any issues. Dad and I had no issues with the check in kiosks.
Again no dramas getting through security.

After a quick lunch it was time to make our way to gate 23 where boarding had started.
Since we boarded fairly late, most people were already onboard.

Load would be about 95%. The seat next to us was occupied.

Take off was on runway 23. Quite a smooth take off and only a couple of bumps in the climb.
Ended up with the three seats ourselves as the guy in 26C moved to another seat after take off.

Lunch choices were a beef pie or chicken wrap. Both dad and I had the pie. It tasted good. Pie was what you can buy at the bakery anyway.
Rest of the flight was smooth, even managed a snooze for about 20 mins.

Once at the gate, there's the classic every one stands up, but no one goes anywhere for 10 minutes.
Waited for the crowd to go.

Quick visit to the flight deck on the way out.

Once we had got the check in bag, it was out to the taxi rank and was expecting an indian driver, but we didn't which was good.

Brisbane-Adelaide

737-838 VH-VZD
26A

Returned the hire car a bit early so we could spend a bit of time in the terminal

Check in and security were no issue.

Spent the rest of the time until our flight departed photographing aircraft taking off and landing.

Our aircraft departed from gate 18. Flight appeared to be completely full.

Meal options were a turkey sandwich or chicken Caesar wrap. However the turkey was gone by the time they got to us. Both dad and I had the chicken Caesar wrap which wasn't bad.
Tea, coffee and soft drinks were offered. Dad went for the Coke Zero while I had lemonade.
Rest of the cruise was generally smooth.

Again the "I must get off first" stampede.
ImageQantas737-838-VH-VZD-61 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr

Waited for the crowd to go. Now Qantas use the rear door as well as the front door. They only do this if the weather is favorable.
ImageQantas737-838-VH-VZD-62 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr

ImageQantas737-838-VH-VZD-63 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr

Waited for the crowd to clear, had a quick look at the flight deck and a chat to the first officer about the new boarding procedures.

ImageQantas737-838-VH-VZD-64 by Ryan Hothersall, on Flickr

Made my way out and up the jetway and faced the crowds at the baggage reclaim.

Again two good flights with Qantas. Nothing to complain about.
