Check in was very tedious and we queued for more than an hour. There were two busy flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other and more ground staff would have been really useful. Flight took off on schedule and I had my favourite aisle seat which is always a plus. Service was attentive but dinner was served quite late into the flight so it would have been nice to have a drink/ snack while we waited. I fly regularly with Singapore airlines and this is something they do within 30 minutes of take off. Our flight attendant was charming and friendly so that made up for it a bit..
We had a 4.5 hour wait in Melbourne for a connecting flight to Hobart which was tedious after an overnight and sleepless flight. Fortunately we could use the Qantas lounge but due to renovations there was only one shower available so had a bit of a wait before I felt human again!
