  1. Diary of a DYKWIA December 2012

    by , 2nd January 2013 at 11:11 AM
    Technically, umm well actually, my December diary starts in November. It was at the end of November I began my seventh and last trip to Blighty.

    “Mr Hancock we have a complimentary upgrade to First Class for your MEL-SIN flight for you.” These were words that were most welcome. I had booked a JASA way back in January so the upgrade was a very pleasant surprise. The QF MEL F check in “suite” is a wonderful start to a trip. Away from the hustle and bustle it is peaceful and feels ...

  2. Diary of a DYKWIA October 2012

    It’s the end of October and I have finally got past the 1200SC mark with QF after four months. I thought I was never going to get there. MrsH reached her 1200SC milestone 45 days into her year. Oh and how I have enjoyed hearing about that.

    My sixth trip to Blighty, this year, began with a call from the EY chauffeur service to let me know what time I would be picked up later in the week. I rather liked this. Normally I’m fannying about booking a taxi or driving myself. ...

  3. Diary of a DYKWIA September 2012

    by , 16th October 2012 at 07:15 AM
    Ye Gods October is upon us and almost past.. What did I do in September? Time to think about this.

    Shanghai.....I had a week’s business in Shanghai, a JASA with QF. It’s all coming back. QF400, a 734 and another lack of priority boarding. I must say I am looking forward to daylight savings and QF129 going back to a 10:25 departure. Much more civilised, no gulping down eggs benedict in a rush....but I’m getting ahead of myself.

    The Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn duly popped ...
  4. Diary of a DYKWIA August 2012

    Happy New Year! Although it is not really happy nor is it a new year, for two reasons; It’s not a new year in the actual sense, it is just the start of a new QFF year for me, and in no way are the next 12 months going to be particularly happy. I fear the worst for the economy and that means traveling at the wrong end of the aircraft for me.

    It is going to be a year where I will struggle to maintain P1 and DJ Platinum. If I do retain WP1 status I will be funding a good portion of ...
  5. Diary of a DYKWIA July 2012

    by , 16th August 2012 at 09:55 PM
    The afternoon flight up to the Gold Coast was yet another reminder of why I choose to fly domestically with DJ. A spot of tiffin in the Lounge, priority boarding, a Luke Mangan New Yorker sandwich and a crew that was prepared to defend the business cabin with their lives. I almost enjoyed the flight.

    I’d never been to the Gold Coast before, it hadn’t been on any bucket list I had, my mind associates it with something called “schoolies week”, which I believe means lots of young people ...
