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 ūüôā…
