Brisbane Airport Reviews

Brisbane Airport Reviews-Eagle Farm Airport Brisbane’s first airport was actually Eagle Farm Airport which was built in 1925. Brisbane was the headquarters of the Supreme Commander of Allied forces in the South West Pacific Area, General Douglas MacArthur, during the Second World War. But, by the 1970s, it was clear that the facilities at Eagle Farm Airport were inadequate for a city of Brisbane’s size and anticipated growth. This had led to the construction of Brisbane Airport in 1988, to be built immediately north east of Eagle Farm Airport.

Let’s learn more about Brisbane Airport (BNE) in this review.

Aesthetics

departureSleeping at the airport is allowed according to Brisbane Airport reviews. Comfy couches are available both landside and airside. Those who have visited both the International and Domestic terminals favor the International terminal for better sleeping options. Free showers and restrooms are available in both terminals.

To know your way at BNE, a visitors’ information center is located on the level 2 of the international terminal, and passenger information desks are on the ground floor of the domestic terminal. Since the airport is open for 24 hours, free WiFi is available for 8 hours or up to 500mb. Additionally, Internet kiosks are available on Levels 2, 3, and 4 of the International Terminal. Rate is AUD 2.00 (20 minutes).

facilitiesThere are plenty of cafés, fast-food outlets, and bars at Brisbane Airport. Options in the International Terminal include a pizza outlet, bakeries, and a pub. In the Domestic Terminal, options include snack bars and cafés. A large selection of fashion and gift shops, as well as duty-free shopping options, is available on levels 3 and 4 of the International Terminal. There is a newsagent and a surf clothing shop in the Domestic Terminal. A free shuttle service connects to the nearby Skygate shopping precinct, which offers further retail options.

Directions

Driving your way to the airport, BNE is located on Airport Drive, with direct links off the M1 Gateway Motorway (Exit 108) and East West Arterial Road. From central Brisbane, take the northbound M3, which leads onto the M7. This road leads directly to the airport complex. The journey time from central Brisbane is roughly 15 minutes.
Brisbane Airport Reviews-Airtrain
Hotel shuttles in several areas provide airport transportation service to their guests either for a fee or as a courtesy. Airtrain operates train transportation between the airport, Brisbane City, and the Gold Coast from the Domestic and International Terminals. Taxi service is provided by Black & White Cabs and Yellow Cab. You can pick up a taxi at the northern end of arrivals on level 2.

Location – Traffic – Service

Brisbane Airport is situated 13 km (8 miles) northeast of Brisbane, and is the major hub for Virgin Australia and a secondary hub for Qantas, and is also a hub for Alliance Airlines, Jetstar Airways, and Tigerair Australia. BNE is the primary international airport serving Brisbane and South East Queensland, and has 2 terminals and a private flight facility for Hawker Pacific and Brisbane Jet Base. It has 3 runways.
Brisbane Airport Reviews-Virgin Australia
Since Brisbane has the third-highest number of domestic connections in Australia following Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane Airport is the third-busiest Australian airport by aircraft movements; they were able to accommodate almost 22 million passengers last year.

Conclusion

Checking through Brisbane Airport reviews on Skytrax, the airport only got an overall score of 4/10 based from 151 feedback posted online. Being at a below-average score was because the most recent comments of passengers are negative. Complaints arose from disorganized lines, unfriendly staff, and poorly managed facilities. However, given the continuous complaints of customers and passengers, BNE has always been one of the best airports to use when it comes to Australian destinations.

Sharp Airlines Reviews

Sharp Airlines Reviews-Malcolm Sharp
Malcolm Sharp

In 1990, an air facility was established, but only with a single Piper PA-31-350 Chieftain, a twin-engined aircraft known to be a vulnerable yet popular choice of aircraft back then. The airline had slowly grown in time, and had acquired the aircraft of Fairchild Metro to replace the Chieftains. It was then that the airline added a new network to Essendon Airport. In time, Sharp Airlines added several more route networks to Port Augusta, Portland, and even to the largest island in the Furneaux Group, Flinders Island.

Now, Sharp Airlines has 10 aircraft of Cessna, Piper, and Fairchild which can accommodate 3-19 passengers. Their parent company is Sharp Aviation Pty. Ltd and they are still being led by the founder and managing director, Malcolm Sharp.

InFlight Services

Sharp Airlines Reviews-on boardPassengers flying with Sharp Airlines are allowed up to 15 kilos of checked luggage and 6 kg of carry-on luggage per paying customer.

Sharp Airlines provides a fly in fly out service in support of the resource sector to remote localities across Australia. Crew and roster rotations, carriage of freight and equipment, emergency support, and specialised aerial services are all part of Sharp Airlines’ expertise.

Offering first-class personal service, Sharp Airlines will ensure that your experience is rewarding and memorable. Whether it is for a business trip or a special occasion, Sharp Airlines’ specialised charter service can deliver on all of your expectations.

Not-so-sharp Website

Sharp Airlines Reviews-pageThough, their official website doesn’t look updated or well-maintained; given it’s not modernized, the web page still functions normally wherein customers can search and book for their preferred flight deals with Sharp Airlines. The page shows a flashing image of their holiday packages and services. They also show several tabs of information regarding the airline’s policies and news. However, Sharp Airlines doesn’t have a mobile version of their PC services.

Sharp Airlines Reviews of Passengers

We tried reading and checking through several Sharp Airlines reviews online. To be honest, there weren’t much, but acknowledgement and appreciation are shown by their customers with their experience with Sharp Airlines. One recent feedback was even posted on the 10th of July 2016, saying, “Thank you Sharp, you are so easy to deal with whether it is travelling or booking, changing a booking or cancelling it is never a problem. Keep up the great service.” To see more of Sharp Airlines reviews, refer to this link below:

Conclusion

Sharp Airlines might not be the very best regional airline or air carrier in the world, but at least they are good at providing services to their passengers and loyal customers, given the size of the travel company and its numbered fleet. Based on Sharp Airlines reviews, the airline had accommodated them properly and accordingly. They also wish that Sharp Airlines will keep on growing in time.

HeliSpirit Reviews

HeliSpirit traces its roots back to 1984 and was initially known as Heliwork WA. Heliwork WA was founded by Kimberley aviation pioneer Kerry Slingsby. Though, what made it to what it is now was actually when Michael McConachy and Geoff Hamilton purchased the helicopter division of Heliwork WA in 2014, and rebranded it to HeliSpirit: more commonly known nowadays as
“The Spirit of Australia’s North.”

HeliSpirit Reviews-awardThe multi-award-winning HeliSpirit is the specialist when it comes to discovering Australia’s north by helicopter. With spectacular helicopter flights, HeliSpirit can show customers the best Northern Australia has to offer. It has a National Tourism Quality Accreditation, Ecotourism Certification, and operates with 20 helicopters.


What is HeliSpirit?

HeliSpirit Reviews-experience

HeliSpirit is renowned for providing a wide range of reliable, highly professional helicopter services to a diverse range of industries.

Or in simple terms. HeliSpirit is basically a West Australian helicopter charter company which offers a range of Kununurra Helicopter Tours, including helifishing, helipicnics, longer itineraries, and Kununurra scenic flights.

helifishingThey are also known for their Helifishing services, which actually means taking a customer on a helicopter flight to fishing locations which are not accessible any other way (except by hiking). Landing close to the spot leaves tourists with a thrilling experience. Another good news for non-fishers out there without any fishing gear: HeliSpirit supplies quality fishing gear for customers to use. Even food and drinks are supplied as well.

But, please be reminded that HeliSpirit’s heli-fishing departs year-round from Kununurra and from April to October, also departs from El Questro Wilderness Park. Both are in Kimberley, Western Australia.

HeliSpirit Reviews of  Customers

We read through several HeliSpirit reviews and saw how happy their customers are with their services. Most of the feedback posted and engaged on TripAdvisor are all 5-starrers. HeliSpirit Reviews-reviewsCustomers keep saying that HeliSpirit is an absolute must and they felt completely safe. Therefore, we would highly recommend them. To see more of these HeliSpirit reviews, click here.

However, if you are looking for Skytrax or TrustPilot feedback pages for HeliSpirit Reviews, we found none. Maybe, because HeliSpirit had eventually been known since 2014. More like 2 years ago, but we are looking forward to seeing and hearing more about HeliSpirit in the future.

Conclusion

Almost everyone of us dreamt of riding a helicopter and some want to personally own one. Who wouldn’t want to be like Anastasia Steele flying on a Charlie Tango to Seattle with the most eligible bachelor and Seattle’s best man, Christian Grey? Relive the Fifty Shades of Grey love story and feel how Anastasia felt riding a helicopter to a destination. It will surely be more fun than a closed aircraft.

Since it has been a year, we will be starting to write new reviews about the travel sites we once wrote about last year, just to give you a heads up of the current status or changes of a particular online travel agency. Things can change in a span of a year, that’s why we decided on re-writing some of the written travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.

In this review, we will be re-talking about Webjet.

Webjet Reviews 2016

Webjet Reviews 2016-David Clarke
David Clarke

Webjet was founded in 1998 by the former CEO of Jetset Travel, David Clarke. At first, the company was based in a single home office and blew up over time and hard work. Webjet is known to be headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. Though, in 2004, Webjet expanded to New Zealand and has since begun joint ventures in North America, Singapore and Hong Kong. In 2007, Webjet made a bid of $42.3 million to acquire Travel.com.au but unfortunately for them, they were out bid by Wotif.com who paid $49.8 million.

How Does Webjet work?

Webjet looks organized and clear, making the site very easy to navigate and find what travellers are looking for. However, the white background and light grey text makes it less visible for the content. Maybe this is their way of making the background image of the beach more noticeable. Moving forward, the majority of their offers are vacation packages for travelers seeking leisure time and their goal is to offer the lowest rates possible. Not to mention, like other travel sites, Webjet lets customers search and compare flights, hotels, car rentals, and cruise deals.
Webjet Reviews 2016-pageWebjet also has a mobile version of these services. The travel app was officially launched in August 2010, but it only started for iOS users. For Android, it was later released in 2015.

Webjet Reviews 2016 from Customers

Checking the most reliable commenting site in Australia, ProductReview, it seems like consumers are not satisfied with their experience with the travel site. According to 524 Webjet reviews 2016, the travel meta search engine’s overall service was terrible. Hidden charges suddenly showed up on their bank statement. Others are mostly complaining about Webjet’s false advertising of deals online then charging more than after booking.

It’s quite frustrating to see unhappy customers who planned their vacations for too long get messed up by just booking with Webjet. Most of these Webjet reviews 2016 ended their review by saying “Never use this company” or “I would have give them NO star rating, if it’s an option.”

  • Head Office Address:     Level 2 509 St Kilda Road Melbourne VIC 3004, Australia

Conclusion

From their humble beginnings of being a small office to one of the largest online travel agencies, Webjet now has been falling. They have had their issues, like all companies, but they don’t even acknowledge customers’ concern. This is the reason why some of their customers just decide to book with their competitor. Webjet is a pretty great travel agency, but sure needs a polishing.

Holiday Planet Reviews

Holiday Planet is said to be the number one online travel agency in Australia. Who stated that? Them. Well, Holiday Planet was actually founded in April 2001 by Alan Dodson, their current Managing Director, who was momentarily joined by their current Operations Director, Michael Croy. It has been said that Holiday Planet had now grown to  five internet sites across all key areas of leisure. In this review, we’ll be checking the credibility of Holiday Planet as they self-proclaim to be the most diversified travel site in Australia.

What is Holiday Planet?

To be honest, personally, I don’t like the overall interface of Holiday Planet. First, it’s not modernized. Second, it’s hard to navigate. I bet travellers who are technically challenged will give up and just use another Australian travel site than waste time figuring out how Holiday Planet works.

pageThey actually made the right choice for a holiday-theme color of blue and orange, but they didn’t maximize this. Maybe, just maybe, they could update their web page. Things might get a little bit better from their end. Because, “First impressions last”. If travellers won’t see that the travel site looks trustworthy, then they won’t even dare to search, compare and book.

Holiday Planet is a travel meta search engine wherein customers can search for flight deals, hotel reservations, holiday packages, cruises, coach, and car rental services. Insurance is also offered on Holiday Planet. However, when we tried to click it, it just directed us to a page where it says “Scheduled maintenance in progress. Our site is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance. We’ll be back up and running shortly.” Not really helping at all.

Unfortunately, Holiday Planet doesn’t have a mobile version of all these services. The only way to book online via smartphone is through web browsing or using a device’s Internet browser.

Holiday Planet Reviews-feedback

Holiday Planet Reviews of Consumers

“Experience the difference with Holiday Planet”. Customers did experience the difference though not on a positive note. What I mean to say is, based on Holiday Planet reviews, the Australian-based travel site is garnering a lot of complaints from its consumers. Customers are majorly talking about how Holiday Planet keeps charging them over a booking that was already cancelled or had never been placed. To some consumers who had successfully booked with them, hidden charges arose when they checked their bank statement. Someone said “It might be just additional $5-10, but it wasn’t part of the booked deal. It’s quite frustrating in a sense of honesty.”

  • Head Office Address:     299 Vincent St, Perth WA 6007, Australia

Overview

Judging through the Holiday Planet reviews and facts we had gathered and considered, the Australian travel site can’t even match with STA Travel and Webjet. Now, it’s safe to assume that Holiday Planet was left out and certainly not the best travel site in Australia or credible enough to compete globally. Alan Dodson and Michael Croy should give more time to upgrade their travel company’s service and engine. Who knows, we might see a new Holiday Planet in 2017.

Regional Express Reviews

Regional Express was established back in 2002 by former employees of a major Australian airline group, Ansett Australia. These employees created Australiawide Airlines and had acquired Hazelton Airlines & Kendell Airlines, merged it and started operating as Rex (Regional Express). The airline that offers scheduled regional services in Australia had grown slowly by acquiring Air Link in 2005 and its continuous expansion in time.
Regional Express Reviews-merged airlines
Now, Regional Express has 49 SAAB aircraft in fleet一the world’s largest fleet of twin turboprop engined Saab 340 passenger aircraft of all versions – and caters routes to 54 destinations. To see the full list of the airline’s destinations, click here.

The airline carries the company slogan “Our heart is in the country” while operating in 6 bases: Adelaide Airport, Melbourne Airport, Sydney Airport, Townsville Airport, Cairns Airport and Perth Airport.

 

Regional Express Services

inflightOn board, passengers are allowed to use personal electronic devices, but only in certain circumstances. Electronic devices weighing less than 1 kg (eg: mobile phones) can be used on board but in airplane mode during all stages of flight.

Devices more than 1kg (eg: laptop) are permitted to be used only when the fasten seatbelt sign is switched off.  Please be notified that these devices should be turned off and securely stowed once the fasten seatbelt sign is switched on. All personal electronic devices cannot be used while crossing the runway.

A cabin safety information card is available in each seat for passengers to read and be knowledgeable about the safety precautions while flying with Regional Express. There were not much info online or on their official site regarding inflight experience, but from Regional Express reviews, we learned passengers are greeted by the captain and solo flight attendant. Passengers are served with tea, coffee or water and offered a savoury or sweet snack. Spacious and comfortable seat configuration (2-1) is also shown in this image we got about the inflight view of Regional Express.

PC and Mobile Services

The official website’s design is outdated, and often times some customers run into dead links while looking for support. Travellers are complaining about the overall layout and functionality of the site, since it’s confusing and the font size can’t be changed. Whenever they try to call for support to workaround the page, the customer service line was always busy.
Regional Express Reviews-page
The official page majorly focuses on the airline’s policies and procedures. The official promptly promotes their hot fare deals and airline achievements. They even have a moving map of all the destinations offered by Regional Express.

Unfortunately, Regional Express isn’t very mobile-friendly, as it does not yet have an Android or an iOS application. However, customers can access their mobile site by using their smartphones and surfing the same link for www.rex.com.au

Regional Express Reviews of Passengers

Regional Express Reviews-happy passengerAccording to 42 Regional Express reviews, the Australian regional airlines had garnered a total score rating of 6/10. Another good thing about this, Regional Express is getting positive feedback and acknowledgements lately. Most recent reviews are recommending the airline and the rest had even considered this as an excellent little airline.

Conclusion

Even if Regional Express isn’t one of the best airlines in the world, they had evidently provided good services for their passengers. This small but efficient regional airline had limited information online yet had been popular through its loyal customers. Plus the Regional Express reviews were enough to convince other tourists to definitely fly with them again.

Things can change in a span of a year, that’s why we decided on re-writing some of the written travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.

In this review, we will be re-talking about Flight Centre.

Flight Centre Reviews 2016
Flight Centre Reviews 2016-offices
The largest retailer of travel in Australia traces its roots back to 1981 when it was established by Mr. Graham “Skroo” Turner, following the success of his Topdeck (another tour operator travel company). The first office of Flight Centre opened on 1982 in Sydney and in 1988 for Melbourne and Brisbane. Now, Flight Centre has almost 700 Flight Centre-branded shopfronts across Australia.

Turner had stooped down as CEO in 2002 but resumed the role in 2005. So, Graham Turner is still the current chief executive of Flight Centre.

Following the continuous growth of the Australian travel site in 2004, Flight Centre acquired a state-of-the-art online booking system as part of its purchase of website travelthere.com, enhancing the booking capabilities of its popular Australian website.

How does Flight Centre work?
On Flight Centre customers can search and book for flights, holidays, hotels, car hire, cruises, travel insurance, coach tours, visas, traveller’s cheques and even redemption of frequent flyer rewards.
Flight Centre Reviews 2016-page
Wherein their customer service team is operating 24 hours to provide assistance to in unforeseen situations. Flight Centre also has a blog that let’s travellers to be inspired to other places they might want to visit in the future.

Flight Centre Reviews 2016 from Consumers
As their company slogan say “Unbeatable”, we are not actually quite sure if this pertains to the positive or negative aspect. Flight Centre reviews 2016 show that the Australian travel site is a total fraud. It’s not even close compared to Expedia’s, FlightHub’s and Hipmunk’s credibility. In this review, we tried looking for the Flight Centre reviews 2016 for reference. And we are appalled to see the results.

According to ProductReview, Flight Centre garnered an overall rating score of 1/5 based on 634 Flight Centre reviews 2016. The most recent feedback was posted today and he said:

“Went to Flight Centre with what I thought was an easy request – family holiday to Koh Samui in July , told the consultant the area and dates we wished to go , also said we wished to book ASAP . The consultant took all my contact details down in his little book and said he would confirm quote later that day . Guess what – we never heard another word. Terrible service – will never go back”

Conclusion
Well I guess it’s answered. Unbeatable in providing false services and not really cheap fares to customers. We think it’s better to book with other trusted online travel agencies than with Flight Centre. Why? It won’t make things easy and they will not give you the cheaper alternative.

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous

Through travelling people experience different things with different kinds of people. There are those who prefers to stay where they feel safe, there’s nothing wrong with that, but there is something wrong about being afraid for something new.

Things were different for this one guy, he said “Disappointing, check-in was slow, supposedly a premium airline, I don’t think so.” Not all passengers are going to be happy, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

There’s no telling what will happen to Qantas in the future, but right now, their situation is stable and will surely too improve.
