Some people say the level in the second segment of “Patch Monday” is bad, but I can’t replicate the problem. Can anyone else? And how?

@jasonlangenauer Martinis? Well yes, I believe I saw a cocktail bar in the foyer. I also seem to have a room service tab. This could go bad.

Checked in at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. This is all rather pleasant. And it’s 4.30pm on Monday afternoon.

The boarding of QF11 begins. The sheep imagine that crowding around the gate will speed their progress. They are, of course, wrong.

Takeoff is not at 1305 any more. It’s now 1330 according to the Qantas website. I know this. The milling sheep do not. I AM THEIR GOD!

At least a bus terminal has hookers.

@daev Oh I hate this atmosphere. Sheep. Milling, stupid sheep. And there is no bar in the final departure lounge.

Once you’ve done this awful procedure for a Mac http://bit.ly/cTFB1l using as a USB tethered modem is actually quite quick.

Takeoff is at 1305 Sydney time @daev , and yes @peterwickins I think I’ll go compare the A380 with that pissy little Boeing 747 nearby.

Qantas is currently dragging the Airbus A380-800 to the terminal building. Gawd that thing is BIG.

@DemonicVel The airport is essentially a “luxury” department store at the side of which, almost incidentally, some aircraft dock.
