Flight Review: QF39 MEL-CGK Qantas Business

At long last, the First Class check-in area has reopened at Melbourne International Airport!

We were very promptly attended to by not one but two wonderful desk agents at the check-in lounge before a being handed our boarding passes and the all important Express Path pass to get through security checks quickly. It was only a matter minutes from kerbside to the Qantas First Lounge.

As we were famished that afternoon, we ordered a very large lunch at the lounge.

After lunch and two more coffees, it was time to board our flight to Jakarta. The flight was delayed not just because of the bad weather, but also because of runway works at Melbourne Airport. The flight took longer than usual too due the longer route taken between Melbourne and Jakarta to avoid the bad weather.

Service onboard was friendly and efficient as you would expect of Qantas. However, the meals were a little underwhelming on this flight.
