I was beginning my day off the way any premium cabin passenger should; spending time in the lounge prior to my flight.  But this wasn’t just any lounge and this wasn’t just any flight.  For two and a half years I had dreamed and worked towards this day.  I had been earning Qantas points purely for this reason:  First Class flight on a Qantas Airbus A380.

Arriving at Melbourne Airport I was dropped off in front of the dedicated First Class check-in area, which can be easily missed if you don’t know where to look.  Thankfully my driver did know as the check in was hiding behind a line of trees.  I was a little too early to check in for my flight, but was able to sit down in the lobby area (which looks almost identical to the First Class lounge).
