Love the electronic window shading

On the minus side, QF73 is almost always late. This time by about 8 hours after notification of a number of days. The final notification came on the morning of the flight, shifting it a further three hours into the evening. Scheduled at around 1310 and departed at around 2150. Very poor.

United Business was pretty poor overall. Staff were friendly, but some didn't really want to help. Made me feel like they didn't want me there.
