Yes, I've been gate checked. They just hand write a quick tag and drop it down the chute.
There's no "priority" tag or anything, but because it's one of the last loaded it does tend to come out reasonably quickly.
If you're likely to be 8.5kg, can you pack some of your stuff (i.e. 1.5kg) in...
So a bit of a DYKWIA, but nonetheless bear with me.
I travel pretty frequently to Melbourne and this week have been nicely thanked by the hotel with a gift acknowledging my 30th stay (thoughtful and much appreciated)
I went back and checked my loyalty account and it's actually...
460 MEL-SYD everyone being weighed with only one scanner operating (as other FA doing the weighing).
Commenced boarding on time (6:10) and boarding finally concluded at ~6:40...around 15 mins late on pushback pretty much exclusively due to the weighing.
Full 737 but standard (non pivot)...
Hoping to draw on the community's expertise to help my Dad out.
He is planning on take some long service leave this year, and will be travelling around Europe on a bike. As a result, he needs to take quite a lot of baggage (60-70kg he estimates).

An absolute zealot policing the premium security line at SYD this morning (no one checking the regular queue).
Massive attitude even with a poor girl who was 7.3kg. Wouldn't even let her transfer something to her handbag.
This is going to be extremely annoying if it become the norm...suspect...
Second biggest travel year ever for me. Platinum retained for another year which is great.
62,723 Miles (100,944 KM)...2.5x around the world, quarter of the way to the moon
I will just squeak in with exactly 60 nights this year (including a creative mattress run with one of my expiring free night certs at the Essendon Hyatt on the way to the airport).
Tbh, I like Hyatt. I find they get the basics right and their aspirational properties overseas are a great use of...
Ah yes, I hadn't checked the underlying holdings. They are US heavy.
I'm interested that Exxon Mobil is in the UBS ethical fund. Just goes to show that everyone's ethics is different I guess.
Will also be interesting to see how Tesla and First Solar both impact the Betashares one.
