Fiji with Air Pacific
Flying to Fiji with Air Pacific.
Cramming onto FJ412 I am not looking for details. I am happy to be departing
the cold, grey New Zealand spring and excited about the prospect of a few days
in a tropical paradise, wearing jandals (ugh white feet!), and getting some sun and salt.
My fellow passengers are up beat. There is no room on this flight, every seat is taken.
We all have the same idea. Escape! I am in the back row and the seats do not recline.
I am last to get a meal and a drink, but my tray table is cleared first. There is minimal
leg room.The cabin crew are not smiling. The magic is missing-it used to be Air Pacific,
the smiling airline. There used to be that wonderful Fijian music playing that set the scene.
The crew are performing a job, not creating a dream. I am reminded a flight is the means
to get to the destination, not the dream itself. We land on time.
This plane did not have screens in the back of the seats.
Pre Request your seat with your World Traveller prior to getting to the airport.
