No a fan of no airline screens. If one has to bring their own equipment then the airline needs to provide power.

The Assistant at the Bag Tag Kiosk was very pleasant and helpfull in contrast to a similar Assistant about a month ago. Unfortunately age can make using such facilities a bit of a challenge whether real or feared.

Food choices looked fine but wouldn't like to to travel more than 2 hours in the seats. Not enough space to even think of reclining seat so get a bit stiff after a while

Brisbane and Cairns Airports

Brisbane to Cairns flights journey the eastern length of Queensland over some beautiful coastal views. Until the 1970s, Brisbane was served by Eagle Farm Airport, which was used by the Air Force during WWII. Now, Brisbane Airport (BNE) is the third-busiest airport in Australia and sees more than 20 million passengers per year. It houses many shops and cafes, and even boasts an indoor lawn on which to picnic or rest on layovers. Serving 26 airlines, the airport is a hub for several major lines, and Brisbane airfare is very competitive.

Grab cheap flights from Brisbane to Cairns and then head 14 km north of the city centre to the airport. Long- and short-term parking is available at the international and domestic terminals. Because you scored such cheap flights to Cairns, splurge on valet parking and let them take care of your ride. From long-term parking, ride the AirPark shuttle and reach your terminal in five minutes. If you get a ride, drop off is easy on the Level 4 departures road. On return, you can get picked up on Level 2, or your ride can wait in inexpensive short-term parking near the terminals.

At Cairns Airport (CNS), you’re 7 km north of CBD, and Cairns car rentals are the easiest way to reach the city. If you prefer that others do the driving, Con-x-ion coaches take you door-to-terminal at Brisbane, or Airtrain departs every 15 minutes during peak hours from both Gold Coast and Brisbane to the terminals. In Cairns, you can grab a taxi at the airport, or take one of the shuttle buses that serve many of the surrounding areas.
