This flight was a first for us in two ways. First flight in Premium Economy and first flight in the Dreamliner. We had seats 22E & 22F from Brisbane to Los Angeles (nearly 13 hours) with ample room and an interesting footrest and net. A delicious lunch and drinks were served with white tablecloths. Snacks and drinks were readily available thorough out the flight.
The entertainment system with noise-cancelling headphones was very good indeed. Many films and music tracks wiled away the hours. Qantas staff addressed you by your name using iPads and were very attentive.
The only criticism I have is the bulky seat belts which I am told contain an air-bag. This seat belt makes for an uncomfortable time when your tray is used during the meal service. There is very little room between yourself and the tray.
There was a mad scramble at LAX through Customs and Boarder Control to catch the connecting QANTAS Flight to New York. There is no time to relax in the QANTAS Lounge even though we have a 2 hour stopover??
The flight LAX to New York we were seated in 22J & 22K with a window seat. Very nice. Another 5 hours of comfort and good service. It was a daylight flight all the way to New York. Departed Brsibane at 10.30am and arrived 4.20pm the same day in New York. I shall use QANTAS Premium Economy for future overseas travel.
