You are currently on Part II: MEL - PER Qantas QF653.
After arriving from QF819, i had a slow brisk walk towards the lounge precinct where i had access to the Qantas Business Lounge. Below are a few snap shots for you to get a hold on the basic amenities found within the lounge.
To get to the Business lounge, one would need to walk through the Qantas club.
Let us peruse the lounge menu for this evening:
Some shots around the lounge:
Some salad of sorts
Hot food - Braised beef in red wine with Penne
Some sweet treats
Salads and cheeses
The Exotic Multigatawny soup
My favourite place to sit in the lounge is the high tables opposite the buffet area. Prime position to people watch and with ample power sockets under the table as well.
There's always a plate of apples that is always replenished.
Showers and toilet to the left, and more seating. Magazine rack towards the end.
Finally it was time to board, and once onboard i ripped open the blanket to put it on as the aircraft was a wee bit chilly!
Notice i had unlimited legroom due to the position of the seat and the curvature of the aircraft.
Let us familiarise ourselves with our surroundings!
There is a large side table of sorts that is used to 'block' the middle seat.
Even though it is a middle seat, the business class leg room is not compromised
After takeoff, we start off with a Bloody Mary and a pack of savoury pretzels.
Let us peruse the menu on this flight tonight:
QANTAS BUSINESS CLASS MELBOURNE TO PERTH / PERTH TO MELBOURNE NOVEMBER 2014
Rich mushroom soup with chives
Fennel, orange and black olive salad with confit tuna
Big bowl of rich mushroom soup with chives and sour cream
Thai beef noodle salad with nahm jim dressing
Cornish paste with cherry tomatoes and mesclun
Chicken parmigiana with chargrilled eggplant and provolone
Seasonal cheese with accompaniments* Heidi gruyere, Tasmania, Australia Matire Comtois, Charcenne, France
Tea & Coffee
*You may enjoy this dish anytime throughout our service
We start off with the Fennel, orange and black olive salad with confit tuna, with accompanying salad and bread.
Interesting dish, tuna was cooked perfectly, but the olive was not pitted, which almost broke my teeth.
After the small plate, we move on to the Chicken parmigiana with chargrilled eggplant and provolone as our large plate option
Pretty spectacular dish, the chicken and parmigiana and eggplant worked together marvellously, a 5* dish that can be enjoyed in any good cafe around Australia! :D
After the main was removed, we proceed on to dessert, which was a fruit plate or cheese plate. As i was too full, i opted the the 'liquid diet' option that was the luscious botrytis semillon + a florentine option. This was complemented by tea.
The rest of the flight was pretty uneventful, and we were on descent to PER pretty soon.
Then it's off to the lounge to await the next flight, QF568! :D
