We decided to take a four week holiday in New Zealand and were offered stops at Bahrain or Sydney, both of which we had alraedy done, or Dubai which we didnt fancy, or Hong Kong which we did fancy but not with the political situation and riots going on at the time. Trailfinders suggested that we fly direct to Perth, and then on from there. We have several friends who are from there or know that part of Australia well and we had a hankering to see Fremantle. So that is what we did. The flight from Heathrow ro Perth was 16 hours, mostly at night and passed fairly rapidly. Cabin service was very good with plenty to eat and drink and the seat widths and leg room were fine for two average sized adults. Altogether one of the least painful long-hauls we have done!
