"It's a looooong way to Australia" Australia Transportation Tip by AcornMan

  Qantas 747
by AcornMan

The best way to get to Australia is to fly Qantas, the national airline. Aside from perhaps Cross Air, Qantas had the best service of any airline I've ever used in my life. And it's a good thing too, because it took 36 hours to get from Kansas City to Cairns (though in all fairness we had some delays). The flight attendants took care of our every need, even giving us extra meals when we were still hungry (try that with Lufthansa and they'll treat you like you just asked to take the controls). If I ever make another trip to the South Pacific, Qantas will definitely be my first choice.
