    Famous people seen (or even met) whilst flying or lounging

    You beat me to it - then again, I was either offline or suffering the equivalent of 1990's internet for 4 days in La Habana :) I also encountered another AFF'er on the return PTY-MIA whilst queuing for immigration... it was brief (and the name escapes me) - but how amazing that you can be...

    Paris - Recommendations on Accommodation etc

    I've stayed several times at the Citadines Les Halles and Novotel Les Halles, before finding a regular BnB that I now stay at, to live like a local. Les Halles is reasonably central, has an underground shopping complex (and has just undergone a multimillion outdoor transformation), with easy...

    Strong signals that the USA and Cuba to normalise relations.

    Thanks kpc I should have mentioned that I had read the above thread (as well as this one), however noted that the company in the link provided is in the UK, and has a 30 day turnaround time to send to countries such as Australia - so my original question stands as to whether anyone has recent...

    Strong signals that the USA and Cuba to normalise relations.

    <BUMP> Has anyone travelled to Havana from Panama City? Can you confirm that a Tourist Card can still be purchased from the departure lounge in PTY for $25 USD or should it be arranged through the Cuban consulate in Canberra prior to travel? If the card can be purchased at the airport, do you...

    A trip (report) down memory lane - Saudi Arabia and Egypt in the 90s!

    Absolutely fantastic write-up RooFlyer - what a great memory for detail you have. I love the 'authenticity' of your original (scanned) images - they convey something that a digital image (with valencia filter) just can't replicate... for me, a little like listening to vinyl vs. a clean digital...

    Is there still a Premium Desk or has it been "enhanced" ?

    I had a 'situation' with my booking ex-MEL last week (18/3 @ 10.30am). Service desk 6 deep. Rang the QF number from a hyperlink on my phone = 1 hour wait. Rang the premium number = answered within 1 minute. Left the problem with QF who called back in 30 minutes with a resolution. That hardly...

    Wellington Dinner March 19 2016

    Thanks JessicaTam and blackcat20 for making the arrangements... someone always has to do the grunt work, and take the accolades or condemnation afterwards... in this case, of course, there are only accolades. My first AFF catchup in quite a while (thanks for the nudge, you know who you are)...
