Waiting in departure lounge after arduous check in. First we were told we needed visas for Oz as we were staying for longer than 8 hours, for the privilege of 9 hours we’d need to pay 40 pounds each! Spoke to Quantas desk about not being told of this when we booked directly with them and somehow they let us off. Phew! Took an age to process including “computer says no” to the printing our boarding passes. Then after the inevitable “choosing the wrong queue” when going through security Marie’s bag got held up and we had to wait an age for the potentially hazardous “vaseline pot” in the bag to be given the all clear by the officer that killed hamsters. To top it off we were told to board at gate 42 (the furthest from anywhere) to be advised there had been a mistake and it was now gate 3!!! At least it gave me much needed walking training
