Bound For Perth

We checked in online for our flight to Perth and received confirmed tickets however, when we arrived at the airport we were informed that we might have to relinquish the business class seats for economy.  Fortunately Perth is only a short flight (7 hours) so we were happy to take economy if it turned out that way.

We checked in (with business class seats) and asked to report to the gate for any changes.  With no one to say goodbye to us (where is that fan base?) we went through customs, grabbed a Starbucks and headed for the gate.  As it turned out we were able to retain our business class tickets (yeah!) so we boarded the A340 Airbus and settled into our seats.

The flight departed on time (around 23.50) and before we knew it we were sipping on the first glass of McClaren Vale Shiraz and taking in a light meal.

I watched a short documentary before retiring for the night – The Princess was about an hour ahead of me.  We managed to get around 4 hours of sleep on the way down to Australia.  The relatively smooth air, a night cap of port and the 4.00am start the day before ensured that I slept soundly.
