Less packaging on food drink - why a serviette every time I receive a drink, seems wasteful and besides I’m aware of the branding already ..

Maybe do a second run through the plane before take off because we were across from a guy who had his laptop and headphones on during the takeoff. Maybe still need to improve the carryon luggage situation, people bringing on small suitcases, choking up the overhead bins for people who have nowhere to put smaller bags and packs, not too mention holding up the aisle when boarding.

As you can see I had a pretty good experience and flight... Much better than what Lastminute ended up doing to my poor mate beside me who also arrived at the airport with a Lastminute booking on the same flight which he actually booked 2 days before I booked my own with the same above mentioned, Lastminute.com.au. Anyway.. It wasn't the last-minute when we arrived at the airport. We were 2 hours early. In hindsight maybe we were supposed to arrive at the last minute. Like Lastminute do. What happened next was my mate was told something completely different to me when he politely walked up to his check-in counter which was right there next to mine, where I was already checking in. They told him after he handed them his lastminte booking confirmation and itinerary that he didn't seem to have a ticket with that airline on that flight even though they could see all his documents were correct and matched up with his online banking statement on his phone. He was then told that there was nothing they could do and he need to call up Lastminute in the USA right now in the last minutes before our departure just to get Lastminute to id him and release the ticket to the wonderful airline we were flying with that day. Or he could just go ahead and pay the full over the counter price for a new ticket. You'll never guess what happened next.. He called the USA number and of course didn't get answered by someone in the USA at all. It was answered in that same country we all usually get a phone call from on a Sunday morning and can't for the life of us ever understand what they are trying to say. Needless to say even though we tried.. those extra 2hours we had was definitely not enough time to decipher all that. So, in the real last minutes he had to buy a real last minute over the counter ticket. Thanks Lastminute. Btw, just quickly... Also after we had landed and arrived safely at our next domestic airport. We walked over to pick up his rental car that Lastminute had booked just to find out that we have to walk many more km to pickup his booked car because it seemed like Lastminute had booked it over at the car hire place at the international side of the airport. That was definitely the worst thing to find out last minute Lastminute. Wonder if my mate got this same email about writing a review. Funny if he did 👍

Plug for entertainment was faulty and required me to hold headphone attachment in during whole flight in a certain position to watch movie but otherwise all ok. Advised hostess during flight so could be fixed. Seat 48G QF923 Cains to Sydney 28/5 13:40PM
