QANTAS J CLASS Meal Service

I have not flown Qantas in years! I am going to be flying AKL - SYD at 16.25 on Thursday. SYD - Mel - HOB two days later at about 9.30 connecting to HOB dep at 12.30 ish. What do they normally serve.? I assume AKL - SYD is regarded as international for catering purposes? Does this affect the Wine / drinks selection? Any information would help. I followed a link someone gave but it led me to a long thread about Qantas food but nothing specific to what I wanted to research.

Any help would be gratefully received

On the Thursday better to eat in the lounges. SYD MEL is about 60~70 minutes wheels up - wheels down

Fuller menu with more options for AKL-SYD compared with the much shorter (<90 minutes vs 3.5 hours) domestic flights. Plenty of examples for trans-Tasman menus in the FT all airline menu thread.

To be helpful...

Flight from AKL to SYD, will be standard international irrespective of configuration, so if in business, pdb, three course dinner, wines, champagne and spirits. Probably will be a choice of desert or cheese. If in Y then standard tray option with alcohol available. Usually it is a fun flight with full meal service and time for a film.

donestic flights will be limited by short length, but they will try and serve you something and give you something to drink. Not sure what class of travel you are in.

if you are OWE or in business, the business lounge is better than the QP.

No alcohol served in the domestic QF lounges before 12:00. The SYD and MEL Business Lounges are quite good, the "ordinary" lounges in SYD and MEL are open to the masses with QC membership. The HBA lounge is dire by comparison (no Business lounge).

The views are pretty good at the HBA lounge! Although I suspect Pucci isnít much into plane spotting

The HBA lounge is a landside shoe cupboard.

It must have moved since I was last there. It's been a few years.
