Notes from plane seats and the odd airport lounge part ii / Back in wintery Tasmania

May 31st 2016
HE SAID... Today we were leaving Mexico City and returning to Australia. We left our incredible apartment at the Red Tree House in Condesa around 11:45am, jumped into a taxi and sped towards the Benito Juarez Mexico City International Airport, arriving at 12:15pm. After trying and failing a self-check-in, we checked in at the counter and made our way through to the gate lounge. R ... read more

Airlines nightmares, but all ends well!
Flying used to be so much fun, but less so these days: Qantas Airlines--where's Hobart--really? I always fly out of LAX which has been easy (also fine art there), but so sorry it was geographically challenging--it's grown lots beyond its original, logical layout. The DF airport has a fabulous extension of the Anthropological Museum, just in case you get stranded there again. I imagine you and your little beloveds were thrilled to see each other, but almost a thousand emails--yikes! I'm not sure where you might visit next in South America, but I've met Frenchies heading to the French South Pacific who've flown to Chile with a stop (might as well stay) on Easter Island. Might be more direct you those of us in the Southern Hemisphere. Hope you're soon enjoying a fine, warm spring, and I love that you loved my Latino backyard!

Re: Airlines nightmares, but all ends well!
When Qantas is good, it's really good; but when it's crap, it's really crap. Might have to make sure we only fly on their newer planes from now on, as they seem to put better crew on those ones! Yes a few airlines fly from Aus to Auckland to Chile, which is an option for South American travel. Spring started well, but slipped back into winter today...slowly but surely heading towards summer though :)
