Airlines – routes
Ballina -> Sydney
-Jetstar — only fly Jetstar when Virgin flight schedule doesn’t fit. Best to avoid otherwise.
+ Regional Express. Plane is a little tight. Excellent schedule for connections.
Airlines – travel:
Bose QC15 Headphones and a good audio book. The problem with flying, is usually flying, especially economy and budget airlines. I like to put the headphones on and close my eyes, try to forget that my knees are pushed up against the seat in front and my butt is sore from the cheap seats. This works for short flights, as a book, magazine or laptop doesn’t hide where I am. Trying to read while the person in front lowers their seat back certainly reminds where I don’t want to be.
