New Zealand 2012 – 2nd Jan 2012
***Reminder – This text was written back in 2012, at the time of the trip. Adding to Blog today!!***
Jan 1st. 11pm UK time ———- Well,poo pants. Took off in cramped economy….wearing a pair of, what can only be described as knee high tights!!! Suzanne tried to pass them off as ‘flight socks’…hmmmm!!
First impressions of the flight. Took off 30 mins late at 10.30. Then 30 mins of a baby crying, thought that was what the overhead lockers were for?? At the time of typing, it appears there are no TV’s working, and Suzanne’s blanket is too small.
On the plus side, lots of leg room and errrrr, just 11 hours and 50 mins to go.
Jan 2nd. 8am UK time ———- TV’s started working about 1 hour into flight. Meal was very Malaysiany. Took a Phenergan to help sleep, and it worked. We Both slept from about 1am to 7.30ish. The little TV says we are going to get to KL 20 mins ahead of schedule. Not bad, just means our wait at the airport is going to be nearly 4 hours instead of 3.5.
Suzanne is still snoozing. Time for an episode of the Simpsons me thinks!!
Now it’s my turn on this Rich is still snoozing. We have both managed to get good sleeps on the first leg of the journey. Those Phenergan tablets really are amazing. No wonder I sleep for 8 hours when on night shifts. Think I may do a bit of dealing on our next flight! We have started to make our decent and my ears have started to pop. So will sign off now guys and try to wake Rich up.
When Bagpuss wakes up, all his friends wake up!! Its Rich here, we are landing, and this has to have been not to bad a flight at all, largely due to getting a decent amount of sleep. Took a picture of blue sky’s from our window, although we are still above the clouds. Just coming into land. 6pm. Malaysian time ——— Just wound the watch on 8 hours. In an instant, a third of the day gone. Next flight leaves at 9.50, so nearly 4 hours to kill at the airport. It’s another night flight, but as Suzanne says, this one ONLY 10 hours!!! 9pm. Malaysian time ———- Snack and a couple of drinks. Suzanne went for a quick massage, now heading off to gate C16. Another night flight only 4 hours after the last one. See you soon!!!
