    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.

    Maybe the benefit is about to be enhanced?

    Re: Best seats economy A380?

    Both 71D or 80A should do you. I have sat in both and they are brilliant for stretching out. I personally preferred 80A as you got the leg room, a window but with access to the seat from the area in...

    Re: Price Promise Scam

    Just make sure you have booked direct at the better price before doing the charge back, or you may miss out on the room.

    Having the better price booking that they failed to match makes it certain...

    Re: Cheap J flights to Europe on MH

    Most would probably just take the $3500 J Deal with MH to CDG.

    Re: Price Promise Scam

    I would look at doing a chargeback, as they have taken your money under false pretences and you are not getting what was advertised.

    Re: Ask The Pilot.

    And the media goes looking for them.

    2 pumps out of 28. Big deal. It would have had to have been from one of the inner tanks, as they are the only ones that won't gravity feed. In the worst case...

    32D-G has fixed armrests, not great. I would go for two pairs of window aisle combos, given the side storage.

    Re: Seat squatting in Exit Row Seats on International Flights

    Moving after takeoff is quite normal. As for them being premium seats, you pay a premium for guaranteeing one, just like most customers have to pay to pick any seat before departure if no status is...
