Why I Like to Fly Qantas

No comments

Being an Aussie Specialist, I am privileged to travel to Australia more often than most for continued product and knowledge updates. I recently found myself on one of those training trips and had the pleasure of flying Qantas Airlines both internationally and domestically during my stay. A favorite choice of mine, Qantas, continually ranks as a #1 airline for customer satisfaction.

Here are the reasons why Qantas continually satisfies its clients.

Comfort- Qantas seating is some of the most comfortable you will ever sit in. From economy to premium to first class, the seats offer some of the best cushions in the air. A major bonus is that even in the economy for your international flight, you have a leg rest. A net drops down from below the seat in front of you, giving you the ability to stretch your legs. Or, in my case, being only five feet, then drop down lets my feet have a place to rest instead of swinging above the floor. You also receive a pillow and blanket for the long haul flight from the economy on up. Of course, the blankets, size of seating, and types of the leg rest all improve, and you increase the class of service.

Service- The Qantas airline crew are some of the best in the air. They service the flights with smiles and humor that I find unbeaten, among others. They take care of your every need, starting with a water bottle to keep you hydrated through dinner, late-night snacks, and breakfast. Yes, 3 meals with beverages (alcohol included) during your evening flight. It is not your cookies and peanuts but full-on meals with a main, side, and dessert.

Entertainment-Each seat from the economy on up has its own viewing screen. Options include the latest in the movie world, TV, music, and games. There are more than enough options even to cure the most sleepless of passengers. This last trip alone, I was able to watch movies such as “The Age of Adelaine,” “Fast and Furious 7”, “The Longest Ride,” and “Insurgent.” Typically, the best way to manage your flight is to pop on a flick, eat a meal, take your rest, pop on a second flick, enjoy breakfast, and then watch your flight land on the inflight live viewing screen. It is pretty amazing to see the city of Sydney as it is just awakening.

Similar things can be said about their domestic flights between the cities. Many of you may not realize that Australia is the same size as the United States and to get from Sydney to Perth is like going from New York to Los Angeles.

And Qantas is the number one choice.

Again, comfort and service cannot be beaten. You even get a full-on snack on flights as short as an hour.

The next time you are headed Down Under, I highly encourage you to request to fly Qantas. They have several major domestic partners, such as Delta, where you can earn miles as well.
