    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: Caltex - QF points instead of fuel discount

    Yes medhead it is.
    No need to be so sensitive. But that is a common reaction when logic fails. I certainly don't care what you do but this forum is about helping other people and that's what I'm...

    Re: Qantas Loyalty; [QP@EK] lounge rules change [after booking] - Tough luck

    It's good Qantas came to the party for you, but the underlying issue is the lack of 'grandfathering' existing T&Cs which is in their control when negotiating the lounge entry provisions with...

    Caltex - QF points instead of fuel discount

    It's the wrong way to look at it, is it? Really? My lack of eloquence doesn't make it the wrong way to look at it. I've given my reason why I don't look at individual transactions in isolation....

    Re: Virgin to remove bagfree fares from Domestic Routes

    TT is around half that fare. I think VA might think it time that they start pricing like a full service airline (despite the fact they already were) and leave the cheap buckets to TT.

    Re: General Qantas Delays/Cancellations/etc. Discussion

    They will only use OJI as a last resort - if there was any other 747 available (the refurbished ones), they would have used it. Sadly there aren't spare 747s that you can 'pick and choose' from.

    Re: ATO (tax office) payments by credit card

    We have new applications in process for HSBC and Qantas Credit Union CCs. HSBC has a 300,000 cap. My wife was eligible because HSBC did not sell her to Macquarie with the Woolies card sale.
