Qantas Business Class: SYD-MEL A330-300
I wanted to try out Qantas’s A330 Business Class and found award availability using British Airways points when I booked this ticket a few months ago. It was a short 1.5hr flight from Sydney to Melbourne but it gave me enough time to get to know the seat.
The business class ticket granted me access to the Qantas Domestics Lounge which was very nice. Many food and drink options along with excellent tarmac views.
Upon boarding through the front cabin door, I was greeted by the flight attendant and shown to my Business Suite at 1A. She reviewed all the features of the seat which included the over the shoulder seat belt which has to be a first for me on an airplane. You felt like you were in a helicopter or race car. It was very spacious and converted into a lie-flat bed. The included headphones were OK and the IFE content was limited. Lunch was a tasty sandwich and included a key lime tart for dessert.
It was a quick flight and we had to deplane from the mid-cabin door behind Business Class which can vary depending on what gate you arrive at according to the flight attendant.
Overall: Excellent service and seat making this domestic 1.5hr flight a breeze! I look forward to trying it out soon on their Sydney to Perth service.
