Qantas Domestic Business Class - B737-800 Sydney to Hobart
Following on from my recent report on Brisbane to Sydney here is a quick rundown of the next leg, an Sydney to Hobart. This flight would be on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. There is only one Qantas service per day on this route, it operates in the early afternoon. All other services by the Qantas group on Sydney to Hobart are operated by low cost carrier, Jetstar. This short review will mostly be in pictures.
Let's start in the domestic business class lounge at Qantas' main hub, Sydney.
some nice views towards the domestic apron, a selection of cold meats and salad to go along with my coke for lunch

That's enough of the lounge, now it's onto the aircraft for this 1 hour 45 minute flight to Hobart.

at least there is a leg and foot rest installed
welcome drink, apple juice again
We pushed back on schedule and today's flight was full with 12 out of 12 seats occupied. We were offered the standard apple juice welcome drink, suitable for a flight to the 'Apple Isle'. The taxi to runway 16R is very short so we are soon underway.
There is no PTV's on this aircraft in any class. Drop down LCD screens were used to show some light entertainment programs. We were served a light meal, there was no choice. One option only and it was cold beef with cous cous and some kind of orange and chocolate cake for dessert. I had a glass of wine with my meal.
after meal coffee
The flight attendant handed out bottled water after the meal. I asked for a vodka and orange juice and it came with a couple of bags of nuts:
With a flight time of just 1 hour 40 minutes we were soon on descent and over beautiful Tasmania
Hobart airport is pretty basic and there is no air bridges. We disembarked into the cool late afternoon air. It's about 12 degrees celsius outside.
So ends my first journey on Qantas domestic business class. Thanks for reading
