What 1010 customers thought of Brisbane

Absolutely hassle free. The slight hiccup on the seating was due to the fact that the aircraft used on the last leg was a brand new A380R on its very first passenger carrying flight and this new model has no economy class on the upper deck. Can't really complain as we all had celebration complimentary champagne!
