    The Australian Frequent Flyer Community is not just about flying, it's also about sharing ideas and experiences. One of the best experiences our members often report is as a result of meeting other like minded souls. In fact, one of our popular, helpful, and very social member - samh004 - has volunteered to take on the role of AFF Social Ambassador, co-ordinating some of the events.

    Both formal and informal "do" are planned and occur through Australian Frequent Flyer. Here is a little guide to what's on offer.

    Lounge Meetups - Soliciting for lounge passes or any commercial trading as such is not allowed on AFF, but often our members have guest spots for lounge entry available. Each month, members who are happy to guest into an airline lounge will list their plans and timings in our monthly lounge threads, for instance February can be found HERE.

    Airline lounges are not the only place you will find our members happy to chat, Hotel Lounges are increasingly becoming a venue for informal meetings and catch-ups, one of the more popular chains being the Hilton chain. Unlike airlines, the hotel chains offer limited guest access, so the HILTON THREAD is more about fellow members with executive lounge access catching up in most cases.

    Apart from lounges, our members also like to get together for a drink and a meal at various cities across Australia. These events typically run for a few hours, everybody pays for their own drinks and food and much discussion is had about all things frequent flying. Be warned though, they can be addictive and time goes quick when your having fun. In February there are events scheduled for Melbourne and Brisbane, just check out the meetings threads for more details and drop a line in the thread if you are keen to come.

    Finally the last event on offer is our annual get together, The AFF Gathering. Each year members vote for a city and then a date, after which a team of volunteers plan a weekend of much social activity including some local tours, meals, drinks and even unique experiences. Last year AFF was held in Hobart, with some lucky members taking away some prizes including valuable Qantas Frequent Flyer points thanks to generous sponsors. This year AFF8 is to be held in Mebourne, offering plenty of sights and sounds as well as good hotel accommodation to chose from. If you have not been to an AFF event before why not take a closer look, we are still deciding the date but all are welcome! Help select a date for AFF8 Gathering HERE.

    Re: Downgraded from Business Class.

    Not hard surely to only sell as many guarantees as the cabin can hold - I know it is a novel idea to know how many seats there are in a class and match the guarantees to that (or even a few less) but...

    Re: SQ - Trips & Tales

    i don't think there's anything to 'spoil' with SQ F! there is an unmistakable 'x' factor on SQ F that is quite unlike any other airline. you could be sitting in their old cradle seats and still feel...

    Note I have provided the different availability LHR/MEL compared with DXB/MEL - you did not indicate your destination.

    Re: Downgraded from Business Class.

    No compensation would be enough to compensate me for ruining my holiday experience by downgrading me from first. I think it depends on whether you view it as a means of transport or more than that. ...

    Re: Downgraded from Business Class.

    No. Full economy is sometimes more expensive than discount business. My earlier example mentions you can be downgraded and have to pay more? Ludicrous.

    My solution solves the issue and keeps the...
