This was a great flight and staff very helpful. Was a very relaxing and satisfiying flight. Food was very good (for airplane food) and no issue at all. Check in was a breeze and staff very helpful. Also boarding at Melbourne was easy.

Good flights but transfer at Shanghai was an absolute nightmare - probably not the fault of the airline but they should have some staff stationed there. 2hr standing in a line so Chinese authorities could check everyone's documents with only one person on the desk to serve around 300 people - nearly missed my connecting flight because of it!
