Hawaii - Jetstar International to Honolulu

All right folks, where have I been missing to. My first desitination - Hawaii! Despite many complaints on our budget airline Jetstar by the public, me and my friends would have to give our thumbs up to their seats that were more spacious than MAS or SIA; and their quite good looking crews who bizarrely are all asians. Note: I doubt it was only my route as we were heading to Honolulu not Osaka or Kuala Lumpur.

Yes, there was an hour delay during departure but with the comfy seats, good service and the company of my friends, it didn't really bother me. The fact that the flight was only three-quarter full allowed us to double our spaces, exactly what we needed for the 10-hour flight.

They do provide you with free entertainment on the common TV screen and if you want more than that, pay the 12 bucks and get your own personal entertainment set, which I don't think it was expensive at all for less than 1.5 dollars an hour. Food weren't served but you have a choice to purchase from them or bring your own food. I have never really enjoyed airlines meal so bringing my choice of food wasn't a bad idea afterall. Water and hot water were given out unlimitedly free, as well as ear phones. It really wasn't that bad.

Like with all other long flights, I made myself as comfortable as possible in my trekkies and home singlet; lavendar scented eye-shade; eye-mask and face moisturizer; my pillows and blanket, etc. All I did was sleep, got up and eat, read, eat, tried to sleep, eat, chatted with friends, eat... If I stayed on the plane for another few hours, I could've easily gain a kg, geez...

Returned flight was on time and I was quick + greedy enough to have had four seats to myself. Hence once the flight had taken off, I popped my antibiotics that knocked me out for the next four hours on that quite spacious four leather seaters. As to why I was on medication, short story but will talk about it next time.I'm giving Jetstar a pass with credit here!

Su-ann, probably because I wasn't expecting much from them and they took me by surprise. I'll be in Melbourne, you have my number, please call!

Joe, I learnt that only after I bought my tickets too.

Di, he eats and sleeps 20 hours a day in a normal basis so you can figure out how he gets those weight.
