What I did
It was interesting watching the progress of the U.S. Presidential election results. Three cheers to Obama for getting back in - while he may not be perfect, he does have the advantage of not being run by a party of loons - unlike Romney who seems a decent enough bloke but appeared to be backed by absolute bastards.
A smooth flight to Sydney was followed by the primitive arrangements for transfer to the International terminal by shuttle bus. Seriously Sydney, you need to get your airport sorted - there are any number of airports that know how to deal with transfer arrangements properly - this is not one of them.
I think that Qantas must put their oldest aircraft on the Hawaii route. This plane had no seat back entertainment system, and instead employed similar technology to what we saw with Qantas 25 years ago. I know that it is a 'first world' problem, but still, it makes you wonder if they are skimping in other, less visible areas as well... We might as well have flown United, who have the same primitive set-up, but are cheaper and have the option of buying 3" of extra legroom at a reasonable price.
