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.

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.

The Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn duly popped
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
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
