Another 4 days in Canberra and it was time to return home. The next sector would be another standard CBR-SYD sector with great inflight service, and so I shall let the pictures and videos do most of the talking.

Christmas is near!

Boarding announced slightly but was completed swiftly as the flight was not full. Headsets were offered by a crew at the entrance of the aerobridge prior to entering the aircraft and was welcomed aboard at the door by name again. Really appreciate the effort by Qantas crew to greet passengers by name when they check our boarding passes.

At the gate. Flight time announced to be 30min.

Takeoff from Rwy35 for the short and final hop to Sydney. Weather along the eastern board is not very good today.

Climbing and announcement.



Again, the crew wasted no time in starting the service. Inflight entertainment was also switched on.

For this mid-morning flight, we were served a cookie plus your choice of water or juice. The cookie is nice.

Very friendly crew in action again. Qantas domestic cabin crew are really great!
