FLIGHT REVIEW: Air Pacific – Nadi to Sydney
|Carrier: Air Pacific
Flight Number: FJ911 – Departing 09:00am
Duration: 4 hours 40 mins
Aircraft: Boeing 747-400
Class: D – Business
Configuration: 2-2 in business class
Check in experience: Checking in for business class has a priority line, making the experience easy. After my luggage was tagged and boarding passes issued by a friendly Air Pacific staff member, I went through customs. The express lane for business class passengers was closed, however the process was still in a timely manner.
On time performance: The flight left on time at 09:00am. Boarding was quick even though it was a full flight.
Seat/Cabin conditions:Total capacity is 458 passengers with saleable configuration of 28 Business Class and 425 Economy Business class seats have a pitch of 57″, a 12″ recline and in-seat video with 22 video channels and 12 audio channels. With a seating configuration in Business Class of 2-2, the cabin was extremely spacious.
Meals & Snacks: Meals and drinks were served promptly, and presented well. A breakfast was served as a choice of pancakes or omelette with fruit, cereal, croissants and pastries.
Service: The friendly staff were happy to assist with their professional service but laid back style. All cabin crew encountered were more than happy to assist.
Entertainment: Each seat has a personal TV unit with video/audio on demand. The movies included latest releases as well as some golden oldies. There are programs for children including games and informative destination information was available. The systems are a little dated, so it will be good to see Air Pacific get the new updated systems in their new aircrafts.
