Club World Seat 53A
Boarding was from gate 15 just in front of the Qantas Lounge.
Unusually I waited until just before boarding started and headed straight down and onto the aircraft.
Quickly found my seat and arranged the new “White Bedding Company” bedding into one of the side bins on the upper deck of the A380. It was then time to sit back relax and enjoy the flight.
I was welcomed aboard with the customary glass of water, orange juice or Champagne. Needless to say, I took the Champagne and a refill.
Menus and amenity kits we distributed and eventually my travel companions boarded. They like the take more time in the lounge, whereas I like to get on the plane and get my nest sorted for the next 7-13 hours.
Soon we were on our way and we taxied to the end of runway 07R and headed of towards London.
It was not long after we were in the air that the food service started, with a gin and tonic with some warm nuts. For the first course I had chosen the salmon and the soup. This was followed by the beef short ribs which were delicious. To be honest the which I had chosen were not great. However the service from the crew as excellent.
After the beef I had the biscuits and cheese to finish with a glass of port
