Qantas QF925, 3-hour Cairns-to-Sydney domestic return flight, economy class. I didn’t realise how greasy my phone camera has become over the trip until I looked at these photos!
The fruit platter I got on my flight to Cairns wasn’t quite a platter for variety. It got better on the return trip with 6 different fruits (black currants, orange slice, pineapple, honeydew, rockmelon, watermelon), but without the whole banana that Qantas fruit platter meals tend to have in my experience.
Normal lunch menu had two options: green curry chicken or Thai beef salad. Richard chose the hot item, which would have been my choice as well had I not signed up for the special meal.
And it was a good choice. The green curry chicken on white rice was also a light meal, but at least it wasn’t dry and looked unappetising like the Thai beef salad with the rice vermicelli.
I was expecting them to hand out a snack as they did on our first flight. It’s Lindor chocolate truffles. I didn’t need the extra sugar, so I donated it to Richard who, since we’re “technically still on holidays”, gladly adopted.
But wait, there’s more! After the chocolates, there’s also ice cream bars! Best economy class domestic flight meal service or what?
