Introduction

I visited Fiji in 2013 to meet friends. After few days travelling around Fiji, this trip report of the return journey.

Alot has changed since 2013 - Air Pacific is called Fiji Airways, B747 is retired and the new service is on A330 or B737.

Conclusion

Air Pacific was the flight of choice to Fiji as they were flying the B747. The cabin was worn down due to age of the aircraft which was getting replaced. Cabin service was friendly. Meal was breakfast as it was a short flight in the morning. Nadi airport being a tourist destination was relaxed. Sydney Airport was a quick exit being a non-peak flight.

Overall a satisfactory flight.
