Finally, after months of planning , time has come to get to the airport and board an Emirates B777 for the first 6.5 hour leg of our trip to Australia.
A two hour nighttime transfertime should be enough to get us on the 12.5 hour flight aboard Qantas flight QF10 (Emirates5010), an A380 to Melbourne. No trainproblems in Belgium, a fast checkin and going quickly through security gave us plenty of time to wait at the gate.
After an enyable flight with plenty of onboard entertainment and a surprising amount of legroom we had two hours tranfertime in Dubai. We had to take a bus, train and go through two security checks but still made it on time to board the Qantas A380. Between movies and some sleep we covered the 11000+ Km to Melbourne where we arrived a bit early. After immigration and customs a taxi brought us to our hotel near Albert Park, location of the Australian Grand Prix F1.
Time to get some sleep……
