    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: Ask The Pilot.

    I wouldn't call it "ancient history". A lot of the Air Crash Investigation eps have been about incidents that happened 10+ years before the ep was made.
    The QF32 ep was ep 10 of season 13 - 4 years...

    Re: Has anyone had success with the call-up "Marginal" xASA's?

    Last night it was 86,000 QF points versus 36,000 QF points for a MASA instead of a Classic JASA so no deal for my eldest son.
    He used my Virgin points to go PER-SYD and was coming home.
    No need to...

    Re: Has anyone had success with the call-up "Marginal" xASA's?

    That second one isn't the standard minimum points (32,000 for CBR-HBA return)... the fact that the call took so long probably isn't a good sign.

    Re: Lounge access on arrival for Platinums

    I was under the impression that international arrivals access was removed a few years ago.

    This is not the only inconsistency on the Qantas website.

    Re: Robbery? [JQ denied travel in paid seat for Infant on Check-in!]

    All this rubbish is standard for Jetstar. Stay away if you can. I am very happy paying a little more to deal with a real airline not the warped prodigy and "make it up as you go" rules of the "garden...

    Re: Could A345 make QF7/8 non-stop and profitable?

    I loved the SQ A345 that flew us to LAX from Singapore direct as a 100 seater all business class run.
    That is where I developed the idea that two seats were better than one seeing changing the seat...
