Sue commented that Cathay do all things well, legroom, entertainment system which was very true, but come 1:00 AM sleep time, and we found one thing that they don’t seem to do so well. The chair back doesn’t recline! The base slips forward, when you press the button to recline. When doing this Sean thought “Wow, they even slide the base forward to give you a more horizontal sleep. But why isn’t the back reclining?”
Stupid design idea! Sue and Sean got somewhere between one and two hours sleep, and the kids flipped and flopped trying to get comfortable.
We arrived in Sydney around 9:30 local time, and picked up the increased number of suitcases that we left with, and headed to the domestic transfer area.
We were tired, ready for a shower, but glad to be almost home. We grabbed our last flight at 12:00 to Brisbane, and we were home around 1:30 to be greeted by Julie, Chelsea and Charlie.
We had a great trip away, and would recommend it to all. It was certainly a different Christmas for us, and it was great to spend so much time together. It was a strange by product of traveling, that by getting away from home, and all of the little distractions that go with it, that you get far more time to talk and interact with each other.
Many thanks to all the well wishes via email, comments, facebook, twitter, etc.
Cheers from the Kelly Gang.
