Flight is delayed due to engine issues as we are given a $NZ 6 voucher to use in the cafe.
This Q300 propeller plane with a 2×2 seat configuration is tiny and noisy, and I am given the last row, 13. I think the air conditioning unit is behind me as it is so noisy!
But the hum of the engine makes me sleepy and I doze off.
Soon after I awake to the flight attendant handing out cookies and tea/coffee. The cookies are a cranberry and nut shortbread. I take two.
It’s a cloudy day so the view from the plane isn’t too good, so I doze off again for a quick nap before landing.
