WELCOME to my seventh flight review in 2018. On 28th January, I flew Qantas service QF118 from Hong Kong (HKG) to Sydney (SYD). The operating aircraft was a gigantic Airbus A380-800. As I am a Oneworld Sapphire member (Qantas Gold), I have access to priority check-in, priority boarding and access to the awesome lounges in HKG.

Qantas and Cathay Pacific are the only airlines that fly between HKG and SYD. While Cathay Pacific flies 3x Boeing 777-300ER and 1x A330-300 daily, Qantas flies 1x B747-400 and 1x A330-300, although during peak seasons we can see double B747 daily, or even A380 and A330-200. Virgin Australia is to begin a daily service on this route this year with their A330-200.

Great. Thanks for posting. I’ve FINALLY seen a Qantas A380 from inside the economy section.

tristanhnl says:

Yes, we get it, you have elite status with OneWorld, so you have access to priority lines, lounges, and priority boarding. No need to keep reminding about your status. Apart from those somewhat annoying annotations, nice trip report!

Asraf Ali MRU_Spotter says:

May I ask why the flight got delayed for nearly 50 minutes? I didnt hear well the reason (if ever) the captain gave. Thanks in advance

Mubashar Shah993 says:

I love qantas from Pakistan

Boripat Wannasri says:

Why Qantas has many flights to small city like Hong Kong ?

TheCantonboy says:

I wish QF would fly an A380 to Melbourne. They only have one daily flight and often full on the A330. Having said that I still prefer to fly CX.

Cj Bartlett says:

That main meal didn’t look very substantial compared to BA, no?
Being ex crew, I totally hate slow service. That meal delivery was way to slow 🙁

Still love Qantas though ❤️❤️

Takeoff lights not dimmed for takeoff

ElstonAirways1 says:

That is a disgraceful breakfast!! utter farce…I’m ashamed at that…that is very very poor indeed!….I never fly QF anymore AY have the exact same safety record….and are a far better ‘product’ as far as a ‘Y’ class passenger goes..

QF frontline staff are to be commended…… their ‘superiors’ for endorsing such a terrible product?? …….. Well you save some $, meet a ‘KPI’, take your bonus and then move on ……

As a loyal Australian ‘subject’ …and one who is to be supposedly steadfastly loyal to QF,,,,after the ‘global strike’ imposed by Mr Alan Joyce for safety reasons…too many holes in that story…

Good luck QF…I have not and will not be using your services ever since the ‘shutdown’….and even moreso that you signed an agreement with an entity such as the UAE…..clearly a place that does not share Australian ‘values’….

…Really QF…forever you had the respect of the Oz populace…….now you have people actively looking to avoid you……Maybe Mr Joyce & Mr Clifford need a look in the mirror…but it will ALWAYS be someone else’s fault……we all wish we has that questionable exuse !!!


Which row did you sit?

Nice video !!!

bionic26 says:

Lol barely any food Thai and Singapore would serve two whole meals.

Ashwani Mishra says:

Is it only me who thinks world’s biggest aircraft is usually more cramped n tight in space than other 787, 350 or even 777 ? When so many airlines giving 32 inch seat pitch, why 31 here? Not sure about other areas of life (wink), each n every inch matters in flying.

David Baker says:

guy in the yellow long pants is he taking pics of you ? yellow long pants black jacket etc

Chelsea B says:

Hey there.

Whats the difference between 1st class and business class?

Alexander Dunn says:

820th like 360th comment

Hazza says:

I feel like Qantas is really trying. I mean, honestly Qantas has a pretty good product in economy and I understand what they are trying to do by removing the tray, but that breakfast was just disappointing. Although, having said that, usually when I fly I always regret eating too much on the flight, so I would not mind smaller portions if it was higher quality. I fly from China frequently, I used to fly Qantas from Hong Kong but business class on Thai/China Southern/Singapore Airlines is just as good but always much, much cheaper. I wish you could combine the Aussie friendliness with Singapore’s hard product and Thai’s catering. That would be the perfect airline for me.

Tanmay Bhakta says:

I like Qantas as an airline, but I always feel that their meals portions are really small.

behindthelens S says:

are the snacks from the snack bar free???

Logan Life says:

I think I was on that plane

Stephen Reddin says:

Did you ask the cabin crew and check in staff whether you can record them? Doesn’t seem like something you should. Poor form.
Need to cut their faces out

Selina Rashid says:

I read about Quantas in my Geography book!

Hashik Hashim says:
