Hi Raqual

Sorry, not flying anyone else, (not even “Joke” star, especially these days when they fly out of Melbourne from Terminal 4. (aka Siberia and a looonngg way from the QF domestic lounge)

Y’see…, way back in my business career I “signed the cheques”, so I bought myself a life membership of Qantas Club (Lounge Program to everyone else who reads this). I knew I’d be travelling for at least what it cost for what turned out to be another x amount of years and at the annual rate it worked out the same.

So here I am coming up 20 years retired next year and still have lounge access and can take my beloved in as a guest as well, when we “fly north for the winter” to Cairns. Only a week in August actually.. My only other flights are a couple of times a year to Hobart to catch up with an old schoolmate.

Qantas cut out the life memberships after I had retired, cant get ’em anymore.. I was also one of the first to join Frequent Flyer with a membership number in the low 10,000’s. So I guess it was a good decision to go for the “lifer”

Like most of us “Down Under” I’ve had my share of “blues” with Qantas, (trans: arguments), but overall in the 30 years I flew with them on business, local and overseas, they were very, very good.

Now I’m “not into bribery and corruption”, but private box invitations to the Australian Open tennis and AFL Grand Final, (AKA “Superbowl” “FA Cup”  tickets) may have played a part…. LOL Even better was back in ’93, when the tickets above got me in to see my team win that day.

Now this subject has strayed somewhat for the “mores” of CDH, but as my dear old Mum would have said, “there’s a tale to everything!!”

Caty.

I was also a/. a life member of Ansett Golden Wing, but stopped flying with them well before they fell over. Lucky me lost a minimum of points/credits and b/. Our company was a supplier to both airlines and I “got my jollies” when I travelled, seeing our products in use
