The "kangaroo route" - for kangaroos that live in Sydney.

My experience with Qantas is the crew members often sound like old school teachers, rather than hospitality staff.

Always a pleasure watching your videos. Looks impressive though I think 14 in first class looks a bit crowded. I also wonder why first class is under the stairs and not on the upper deck.

Great video, Paul. Thanks for sharing. I just watched this one, and then the Emirates First Class, and think I'll watch them both again. I've never flown overseas, and your videos are really helping with feelings of anxiety around that.

After watching videos of A380 First Class on Emirates and Etihad everything else looks drab. Even Singapore Airlines can't match them, so Qantas First Class by comparison looks like a youth hostel. After watching this I wouldn't even bother. I'd happily just save my money and fly economy on Qantas knowing this because there's not much to be envious of. I kind of feel sorry for the fools in Qantas First Class. What a dump. Those UAE airlines are just on a whole other level of luxury.

I sat in 1A last year and I was warned that being so close to the bathroom would be annoying but I didn’t think so, I thought it was handy. I did notice how many cabin crew who weren’t working in First used the bathroom though, it was basically a staff toilet and it was so dusty in there like 1/2 cm fluff on the window sill and the amenities drawer was empty except for some spilt lotion and some hair. The service was patchy but very friendly (I asked for a cup of tea and 40 mins later it didn’t arrive and then I used the call bell etc which made me fell as though I was being high maintenance) and everything was on request ( like having the bed made up) but they assume you know that. Breakfast was a disappointment and reluctantly offered for some reason with no table cloth. No knife offered with cheese etc, no attention to detail. No chauffeur car in Sydney as I was only going to Singapore and not all the way to LHR. No arrivals priority customs queue in Singapore for First. Very basic First Class vs Singapore Airlines. In Singapore I also noticed that there was no signage in the aero bridges directing you to the right path to First so I arrived on the upper deck in Business by mistake. The lounge in Sydney was absolutely amazing though because it’s outsourced to a hotel chain.

Thanks for the onboard images and review, but we are keen to get advice on which seats to travel in as a couple. We are travelling on QF09 next year and want to make sure we pick the best seats. We recently traveled business class from Sydney and ended up sitting next to each other in the middle of the plane with a big screen between us that did not lower. Do the adjoining seats on the QF009 flight have a screen we can lower so that we can talk to each other?
