QANTAS BUSINESS CLASS Boeing 747-400 Review (LOUNGE, SEAT & FOOD) – HONG KONG (HKG) to SYDNEY (SYD) Flight (QF 128)
One of my bucket list items is to be able to fly business class on any airline. I used to watch so many videos of people flying Business Class, i was so excited i finally had the opportunity to do so myself on Qantas, from Hong Kong to Sydney, on the Boeing 747-400.
I didn’t actually pay for my ticket outright – but rather, redeemed it using my Qantas Points. I participated in a credit card sign up offer (where i get a bonus 75,000 Qantas Points if i spent $3000 on the card within 30 days) and had linked my card with my Qantas Frequent flyer number.
I redeemed my business class ticket using Qantas classic rewards – the seat costed 60,000 points and i paid ~$200 AUD in taxes. (which is pretty awesome value given a one way Qantas business class ticket usually retails at anywhere between $1800 AUD – $2500 AUD). The ticket also provides complimentary access to the Qantas Hong Kong Business Class Lounge.
Qantas Hong Kong Business Class Lounge:
This lounge was absolutely amazing. it had a wide assortment of food available buffet style, a selection of wines and also self-service coffee and tea. the showers were spacious and private and there was a good amount of working space that was also available. I stayed there for a good 2 hours and was extremely impressed.
Qantas B747-400 Business Class Seat (skybed):
This was what i’d been waiting for. it felt surreal to be able to actually experience this myself. the business class seat was extremely spacious with a lot of leg room. we were provided drinks on arrival, a set of Qantas PJs and also a complimentary amenities kit. my seat turns into the luxurious flat skybed which meant that for the first time in a very long time, i could actually sleep on a flight!
My QF 128 Flight was a little delayed due to weather issues in Hong Kong but no complaints from me because it meant i could stay even longer in my amazing seat. lol I’d pre-ordered dinner prior to boarding, and had a delicious braised lamb with asian greens and egg noodles. For breakfast, i had fruit with yoghurt, a pineapple danish, and sourdough with spinach, egg and grilled tomatos alongside a cup of tea.
Overall, i absolutely loved my experience. i dont know when i’ll be able to fly business class again… but i guess.. next bucket list item… Emirates First class? haha a girl can dream 😛
I’m a millennial who quit my corporate job in banking & finance in December 2018 to live life the way I want, everyday. I knew something wasn’t right when days all started to blur together and nothing stood out.
I want to see different places. I want to experience new things. I want to meet new people. I want to do something for the first time again.
This is the beginning of my journey to doing that, and to figuring out how I can generate income that will allow me to live life my way, every day.
