Check in and Luggage Allowance:
Luggage was checked through from Sydney and the standard 20kg of luggage allowance applied. As soon as we landed, we made our way to the transfer desk, which was quite a fair walk away from the gate we arrived at. Within the two hour transit, there was ample of time to obtain our boarding pass for the second leg of our journey, do a bit of shopping and grab a quick coffee before boarding our flight to Amman.

Meal & Snack Service
For the first meal, we had three choices – chicken in red curry with rice and steamed vegetables, beef with potatoes and mixed vegetables or shrimp and rice. I opted for shrimp and rice this time and was quite disappointed with the dish. It was literally plain shrimp on a bed of rice with some salt sprinkled over the top. Bread was stone, but the salad was nice and fresh. Perhaps next time, one should go with the dish that guarantees flavour – the curry.
Entertainment in the movies options included a range of old classics and new releases including One for the money, The Rum Diary, Breakfast at Tiffany’s a range of world movies, cartoons and comedy hits. Due to the time of the flight, most people opted to sleep than indulge in some flicks.
