Meal needs review
Boarding was onto an almost-new 787-8 that seemed surprisingly spacious and had enormous windows.
The interior felt very comfortable, there was generous legroom, the seats were pretty big and the plane wasn't full. Three seats all to myself on a night flight like this one, you can't ask for more.
There was no announcement from the pilot, which was too bad. The staff spoke English that was almost impossible to understand.
Service began very soon after takeoff, but just beverage service.
A meal followed, and it's too bad that there was no beverage service during the meal. There was the choice of two meals, chicken or fish. The dishes were very spicy, which must have spoiled the taste because they didn't seem bad at all.
After that, the flight crew didn't come by until breakfast, just stayed at the back of the plane talking.
Excellent in-flight entertainment, with a large selection of movies, series, games, etc.. Very thorough in-flight information system.
Soft takeoff and landing that were on time.
Luggage was sent directly to Sydney.
