The Qantas A330 Suites Experience : Perth to Melbourne
With the suites upgrade on Qantas A330s almost complete, flights across the country are going to finally have a consistent business class product. Here we have my experience about 6 months ago on a dinnertime flight, Perth to Melbourne.
Qantas is now the sole occupier of T4 with Virgin having moved to it's own facility on the other side of the airport. There is a new dedicated Business Class/Platinum lounge available as well.

Admittedly the lounge did fill up prior to a bank of departures headed to the east coast, and there wasn't a whole lot of extra space available.

The flight was running on schedule and I headed to the gate from the lounge to check out the business class cabin:
|Seats 2A/4A and 2K/4K are my preferred
The menu for dinner tonight:
A non alcoholic Maggie Beer sparkling red wine was offered as a pre departure beverage:

The tables are set in the international dining configuration (i.e no trays!). First up I had the soup:
Followed by the crumbed pork cutlet, which was delicious by the way:
Then the cheese and fruit plate. A small sweet was offered as well.
The flight attendant serving on my side was wonderful, so friendly and very customer focused. He was always around making sure I had everything I needed including regular wine topups.
All in all a great flight with Qantas and the suites are just a terrific way of flying.
