Join me on board JQ3 from Melbourne to Sydney in Jetstar’s 787-8 ‘Dreamliner’ in Business Class (previously Star Class)!
While the flight continues on to Bali, I’ve just taken it for the short 60 minute hop from MEL to SYD.
Interestingly, even though it’s a domestic flight, it goes via the international terminals so I was able to get access to the Qantas First Class lounge before hand (because I’m a QF Platinum member).
Over-all, Jetstar’s 787 Business class offering is OK. But it’s important to note that JQ are a low cost carrier (LCC) therefore you can’t expect too much. In reality, their business class is more like a full service airline’s (ie. Qantas, Cathay, Singapore, Air NZ) premium economy. Having said that, they are usually cheaper than premium economy and sometimes even cheaper than economy class on the proper airlines.
So what was it like? Check out the video!
