I visited Fiji in 2013 to meet friends. After few days travelling around Fiji, this trip report of the return journey.
Alot has changed since 2013 - Air Pacific is called Fiji Airways, B747 is retired and the new service is on A330 or B737.

After a week in Fiji, it was time to return back to Sydney. Check-In area
Check-in queue was long as this was almost full flight. Having arrived early, I completed the formalities in no time.
Had my meal at the restaurant, knowing well there wasn't much for meal during the flight. Food court
