We Went on One of the LONGEST FLIGHTS in the WORLD (while pregnant!) | Qantas Perth to London

So this afternoon we are about to catch
one of the longest flights in the world. Big long day. I am. Big long day. Exhausted and we can just fly
directly for 17 hours straight. Is your body ready for
this? Yes, I’m excited. No layovers gonna be amazing. Almost finished your packing?
Yes, I hope it all fits So this afternoon we are about to catch
one of the longest flights in the world from our hometown Perth all the
way to London direct no stops. Now normally when we head back to Europe, it’s either a stopover in Dubai or Qatar
and that takes us about 20 to 21 hours. So this is shaving off a good three to
four hours on this flight this afternoon. So the route is on Quantas and
it’s on their 787-9 Dreamliner. And now this was made for the route and
it’s crazy because back in the 40s this kangaroo route from London all the way
to Australia would take four days and have seven stopovers. So now it’s crazy to think that we can
just fly directly for 17 hours straight. By the way, Steve, this jumper is getting
me so excited for where we’re going. Well, yes, you guys will find
out where we going very soon. Tell them what you told me about the
whole Lord of the rings and stuff. He was making it sound like the
flight was going to be forever. You’re probably thinking what are we
going to get up to for 17 hours and I was looking, if we binge watched the
entire Lord of the rings trilogy, we would still have eight hours left
on the flight and if we watched episode one, all of the episodes
of Rick and Morty, we would just make the
17 hours plus last one. We just subscribed to Disney+, which
by the way, Jess has been loving. If you subscribed for the flight
and watched every single new show, new TV on there, you could watch it
all and still squeeze in an hour nap. That is my plan. I downloaded all the new
stuff from Disney+ and I’m
just going to watch that all and they’d have an hour nap and
i’ll be in London. All right. I have packed as much warm stuff as I
can cause the next month is going to be cold. This is the last time we see it as
beautiful Ozzy sun till next decade. Seeya. I am so excited for this trip. I’m about to have my dream Christmas
and we actually aren’t coming back to Australia next year. So technically we can say we aren’t
gonna be back home until next decade. Awesome. Thank you. Alright, ready? Last time on land last time in
Australia until the new year. Love your videos by the way.
Thank you so much. Cheers. So this is going to be our home
comfy? yes and the screen’s are big. It’s like a brand new
plane, isn’t it? Yes. This is the brand new plane and we’ve
got our little bankey My head thing, got my noise-cancelling headphones. But…we don’t have a
window. What’s with that? I was super intrigued on how many meals
they would give us and i think it’s 2 main meals. So it’s dinner, which
is going to get served soon. Then breakfast at some point tomorrow.
Also there’s mid-fight snacks. So if you look at this menu, this is the most food i’ve
ever seen on a flight menu. Also they gave us a little kit, eyemask and a toothbrush as well, so once we’ve
had dinner, we can brush our teeth. I think I can squeeze in probably
my final gingerbeer of the year. We just wanted to say a huge thank you
to Mophie for partnering up with us on this episode. When they found out that we were catching
one of the longest flights in the world, they decided to hook us up with some
of their latest battery packs to ensure that our devices are fully
juiced up for the entire trip. Depending on what you
bringing for your holiday, they have portable battery packs for any
situation from their power station PD, which is perfect for
smartphones and tablets. Super compact and can charge your
iPhone up to 2.5 times faster. But if you’re looking for
a bit more juice their, power station PDXL is a portable pack
with a USBC fast charge built in. So if you wanting to keep your phone
charged or like me, my Nintendo switch, the larger battery size is perfect for
those longer flights. Now the monster, which is perfect for us as we not only
want to keep our phones and switches charged up for this flight, but if I want to sit down and
charge our laptop to edit a vlog, the Mophie power station, USBC 3XL, will keep our Macbook alive for longer
than this flight and up to 85 hours on your smartphone. And the final one before we get back
to the vlog is my personal new favorite addition. It’s the compact
charge stream travel kit, which comes in this handy travel bag has
universal adapters for around the world as well as a car charger and a wireless
charging kit so you can be extra fancy at your hotel. So make sure you check out the links
in the description below for all the products mentioned. Now let’s go check on future Stephen
and Jess to see how they’re dealing with this flight. Welcome to the United Kingdom, where the local time in
London is now 5:18am. Thank you. Thank you. We made it. I feel like it
was quite an easy flight in the end. I think it’s because the flight
left at 7:00 PM in Perth. So by the time you have your dinner, you’re tired and ready to sleep
and no one was sitting next to me, so I just slept for 12
hours out of the 17 hours. I think the worst thing about that flight
is how addicted we’re probably going to become to that flight because not
having the stopover meant we were are able to sleep with 10 to 12
hours on the entire flight. Without being woken up and we ate so
much food and the people that worked on that flight were the friendliest, Super nice and also because Qantas is
like an Australian airline they have..I Have never seen this before. Almost like a snack fridge at the back
of the plane, stocked with Tim Tams, ginger beer, like all our favorite snacks. I ate soo many Tim Tams. And now it is 6:00 AM and we have four
hour wait and then we’re flying to our final destination. Should I
keep it like suspense? Okay. You have to wait a little bit longer. So we’ve finally decided that we have
invested into lounge access this year. We stayed in a couple trying to test it
out and now that I’m pregnant and we’re having the baby next
year, well you know what? I think it’s time to finally invest
in priority pass and for black Friday they’re 20% off, so we both got a card and we’ve worked
out that within a year we need to use it 10 times, 10 times, we need to go to 10 lounges and in the
next month we’re already going to be going to seven so I think it’s
definitely going to be worth it. And I’m so excited because we’ve
now come into Heathrow airport. We have a four hour layover and we’re
just going to go and sit in the lounge, have food. This is going to be good. They said the showers, This is the app here, it’s called priority pass and
it’s like a yearly subscription. So we just pop into the airport. We are at Heathrow terminal three lounges
and then we can see that there’s two lounges that we can access. We’re just around the corner from this
one and then we can see everything if it has, it needs showers, food, perfect. I am so excited, we’ve always wanted to
invest in this, but it’s kind of pricey. So we’re waiting for the perfect
time. I was like this is the year Three hours of pure bliss nice
and relaxing. Had some breakfast, had a coffee. I have zero
regrets on signing up to that, but we are now boarding our next flight
one that’s been on our bucket list for a very, very long time. it’s cold. Welcome to Finland! We are kicking off this Christmas trip
in one of the most Christmas’s countries ever. Yes, we are going
to be here for a week. We started our trip off in Helsinki
and we just jumped off a plane. Jet lag is really kicking in. Oh yeah I am exchausted. We feel like zombies. We also, when we got to the airport for
an Uber to get into the city, it was 46 euros or you can catch a train
that takes you right to the city for four Euro 60. So we just did that. It was currently 4:30 PM entities already
pitch black like it feels like it’s so late. 4:30 in the afternoon. Christmas lights are out and there’s a
10 minute walk and we’ll be at our warm Airbnb ready for bed. A little apartment. She said no bruits in the
house or it’s off boots off. Oh, it’s super cute. Oh, this is cozy. So like a full kitchen over
here. Our bed, our windows, our couch all in one area. And then I’m guessing this in that
bathroom then we have got a shower, but I think it’s time to cook
fresh soup. Hot chocolate, maybe some garlic bread and put on a
Christmas movie because we have just had I think one of the longest
travel days in a long while. Big long day. I am long day zoster. I think it is not even that late. I
think it’s like 10 to six. You know what? I think let’s put on a Christmas movie
and fall asleep in the first five minutes. Yeah, sounds like a plan.
Thanks so much for watching guys. Enjoyed this. A lot of European fun
Christmas videos are coming your way, so make sure you hit subscribe
and we’ll see you tomorrow. Maybe a 2:00 AM 3:00 AM whenever we wake
up. Exploring Helsinki. See you guys.
