On my way home

By · · 1 min read

After a niew few days away, I’m now sitting at Brisbane Airport waiting for QF561 back home.

I noticed that the Qantas terminal at Brisbane has wireless coverage by two providers - Telstra and Optus. As I’d never used Optus wireless, I thought I’d give it a try.

I signed up, paid the $13.20 (which included an hour of access) and tried to login - nope. I ended up trying around 5 times before giving up and trying the Telstra wireless (which worked the first time).

It was a waste of money and I’m somewhat annoyed, but I’ll know to stick with the Telstra hotspots in the future - at least they work.

As for the flight itself - it looks like I’m travelling on VH-VXQ, which is a Boeing 737-838. I requested an exit row on check-in, so I’m seated in 14A.
