Must say I was very surprised at how much we enjoyed the flight with Virgin. Especially as we arrived to check in at Perth with 5 people in front of us at Virgin and the Thai airways line was massive AND the flight was delayed till 10am!
Dissapointing that Dome ran out of croissants at 7.30am...but nothing new here, typical of good old Perth International Airport. Then we went to the downstairs coffee place "mattress blue bar' .......I mean who thinks of these names! We shared a croissant and had a coffee each $19 AU, and I remember why we usually eat breakfast before we leave home.
Check in and boarding was really smooth and hassle free, got extra legroom seats in emergency exit which was well worth the extra money.
Didn't buy any entertainment but the food was ok. Airline staff very friendly and chatty.
On arrival in Phuket had to get off the plane on the tarmac and then the shortest bus ride to terminal and deserted customs hall, 4 minutes I think to get thru. Awesome!
Our ride was waiting for us and we dropped him off and drove into Patong, so good to be back home. Quick stop at Nicky's to drop off harley parts for the bike and a few cold bev's. Now I'm chilling in the apartment and everything is as it should be ahhhhh............
