    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: Concierge Services - Does anybody use them?

    There are concierge services and then there are concierge services. The bank-issued cards seems to have call centres of young people using a concierge app; I can google all by myself and make better...

    Re: Gift Cards at Supermarkets

    That could be useful. Mrsdoctau is a teacher, who get a lot of the same discounts at StudentFlights, and they're owned by Flight Centre. I wonder if any of their flights are cheap enough that I'd...

    That's good news about MEL

    Is the spa in the DXB F lounge open when QF9 arrives at 7.00am.
    I would love to surprise my wife with a wash and blow dry on our visit in a couple of months.

    And we had a gorgeous small hotel with a direct view of the tower from the wrap around terraces of our room. One of the best travel experiences ever. Wonderful city. :)

    The spa is open for QF9 departures. I have taken that flight a few times and had a spa appointment.

    Our second hotel was right around the corner from that bit of the wall.

    I've found that the UberX quality has been dropping rapidly. The last few trips have been in old BA Falcons with the taxi stickers peeled off. Last one had a blown headlight and was probably...
