Qantas 747 Premium Economy Review- QF127 Sydney to Hong Kong

My flight up to Hong Kong was on QF127, the daytime departure from Sydney at 11.50am. Although Qantas have recently started flying the A380 on this route, 3 days out of 7 are still operated by a 747 which was the case for this journey.

As this work trip was booked only 10 days before I was due to leave, the choice of seats was pretty minimal. I’d settled on a middle aisle seat, but the day before the flight I noticed that the seatmap had changed, and we had an aircraft swap to the 3 class 747 (with no First class) from the regular 4 class type that usually runs this route. This meant some seats opened up at the front of the cabin, but I struggled to find decent info about this particular configuration, and in the end I made a bad decision and got lumped with a bulkhead seat with no footroom.

Seat 29B. Ergh

Given that Qantas’ Premium Economy is already generous with legroom, the lack of a place to stow my feet (at the end of my stupidly long legs) was an issue, so I started scoping out other seats to move to. Fortunately, after take-off an aisle seat on the other side of the forward cabin came free so I moved over and grabbed it.

Seat 30G. Better!

Once we were on our way, there was little to say about this flight. Lunch was good – as expected. Lunch and drinks orders were taken and brought to seats on a tray; the food was good, and the flight was comfortable.

Lunch

The only bad thing was the afternoon snack – the sandwich choice had run out by the time my seat was reached, leaving me with an unappealing hot pastry which I only had 1/2 of.

All up, it was a standard (good) Premium Economy flight and service from Qantas. Comfortable, nice food, and worth the premium over the back of the plane – as usual!
