Flying First Class

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly first class? So have I.
We were fortunate enough to do so on the way back from the States.

Here's what it's like to travel on the brand new Qantas A380, and on their sensational new first class. It was absolutely great service

The seat, and it rotates and transforms into a flat bed, that the flight attendants make up for you with a comfortable quilt.

The huge tv, and you can start watching as soon as you get on the plane, without any interruption

Greeted by name, and given a light snack and a drink.

I got to sit and have dinner with my husband in his "suite". They set up the table with a crisp tablecloth and nice cutlery (but plastic knife)
In the shot, is my husband wearing the pyjamas given to all first class passengers, designed by Akira Isogawa.

They take your order like in a restaurant.
You order from a small selection on a printed menu.

Bread roll with olive oil and balsamic

Entree: Cauliflower Soup

Entree: Prosciutto & Rocket Salad

Main Course: Rosemary Chicken

Main Course: Salmon with white beans

T2 Green tea

Dessert: Pear and toffee tart

Dessert: Fruit Salad

Breakfast is served a couple of hours before landing.
Again, I had breakfast with my husband, and they took our orders and
we settled in for a three course breakfast....

Breakfast: Granola

Breakfast: Fruit salad in juice


Cinnamon Scroll

Breakfast: Bacon, eggs, potato cakes, toast

Breakfast: Bacon, eggs, potato cakes, toast and relish
The first class experience was sensational, and the new A380 was very very nice. The service was excellent, but I guess it's what you should you expect in first class. Bring on the next trip!

Hmm, once you've travelled first class, you can never go economy again, eh? Very nice way to end your trip!
