Surviving Long Haul Flights

Long haul flights are never enjoyable. The term long haul is apt and descriptive. I have travelled back and forth from Australia to Europe enough times to know that every extra comfort is worthwhile.

Thanks to extensive searching for specific routes and a healthy block of Frequent Flyer points we were able to secure our latest flights on the new Airbus A380 plane along with Qantas Skybed seats.

This was the first flight I have been able to recline fully on. The seats certainly helped. It will be difficult to return to traditional airline seats.
