Jetstar, Phuket to Sydney Economy Class on the 787-8 Dreamliner.

It’s time to head home to Sydney after my short trip to Phuket, Thailand. Although my flight to the island on Air Asia X via Kuala Lumper was fine, also very cheap, I’m happy to be flying direct as it’s given me a few more hours of fun in the sun doing absolutely nothing 🙂…

Happy New Year! Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!

Happy New Year! Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018! I spent a lot of time travelling in 2017 and I’ve just calculated it, I flew 97,707 kilometres.

Jetstar Asia. Bangkok to Singapore With a Meal.

“The choices today are Black Pepper and Chicken Rice?” “Yes please” “Which would you like?” “Oh sorry, I thought it was the same thing, I’ll have the Chicken Rice” I misunderstood and thought it was one dish but the hot meal choices today were Black Pepper Chicken or Chicken Rice. I’ve reviewed Jetstar and Jetstar Asia…

Happy New Year 2017 – Where are you travelling to?

2016 was a good year but I didn’t get to travel as much as I would have liked. Buenos Aires and Montevideo were great, as was a brief trip to Melbourne. I have, however already booked my big trip for 2017. One way ticket around the world! First stop, Singapore, then Penang, Phuket, Chiang Mai…

Trip Notes: Jetstar JQ605 Sydney to Melbourne Avalon

Not so long ago I took a trip to sunny Melbourne flying Jetstar from Sydney to Avalon Airport located 55 kilometres south of the city. I’ve reviewed Jetstar’s services before which you can read here so I won’t go into the flight experience except to say, on the uneventful 1hr 35min journey I had that…

Jetstar, Queenstown to Auckland

“Would you be able to assist the crew in the event of an emergency?” “Yes I would” These are the words that get you upgraded when flying on a narrow-bodied Jetstar Airbus A320. With Business Class being only available on their Boeing 787 Dreamliners, this is the closest you will get to a seat with…

Jetstar, Sydney to Bali on the 787-8 Dreamliner, Economy Class.

“Pop the butter on top of your meal, it will soften it” After all my years of flying,  I’d never heard something so simply ingenious when it comes to that hard frozen butter sometimes served on board a flight. I was heading on a last minute trip to Bali, partly birthday celebration, partly Christmas shopping trip but mostly…

Jetstar Airways – Sydney to Brisbane

“I only fly Qantas so I can earn Qantas Frequent Flyer Points and Status Credits” Said the Gold Frequent Flyer (GFF) over lunch one day. “But you can earn points when flying Jetstar as well” I remarked, “You just need to add the plus bundle, its a couple of dollars more than the lead in fare,…

One Day In November – A FreakyFlier Day Trip

Let me take you on a day trip, its not your regular outing but for an aviation enthusiast its going to be a freaky good day! Late last year, when Jetstar received its first Boeing 787 Deamliner, they offered a few sectors domestically to ‘break-in’ the new aircraft and give the Australian travelling public a…
