Wondering if anyone (who's not yet posted arrival time) will be landing MEL around 4.30pm on Friday? If so, interested in sharing a taxi into the city (I'm staying at the HoTP but I'm sure we could come to an agreement :))
I'm currently scheduled to arrive in Mel on VA at 1005pm (OK it was the cheapest flight at the time of booking), but am hoping to "Fly Ahead" and get into Mel around 5-530pm. Obviously, i won't know until I check in at Syd airport on Fri pm which flight i will be taking to Mel. Also, I have got a booking at both Holiday Inn on Flinders and HOTP on Fri night, but will probably stay at the former as I'm trying to complete IHG's "into the night" promo....in any case, if we can work around this, happy to share a cab....

Confirmed and paid on my QF flight OOL SYD with Samh004, due to work commitments I am on the 815am OOL SYD on both Monday and Friday this week. Looking forward to meeting some new people and seeing some old faces.

Just to confirm that 17 payments have hit the account so far, out of an estimated 40 expected over the course of the weekend.

So if you've made your payment and are wondering, they are going through, don't worry.

In case anyone was really wondering who the guest speaker is for the Saturday night dinner.

I received a PM yesterday from jb747, in Dallas, confirming the he and his wife will be coming to the dinner.

The late confirmation and announcement was just in case he had a late roster change and could not come.

Should be a great night.

It looks like I'll have to miss out on AFF Gathering #8. :( Very disappointed since I was looking forward to meeting more of the AFF community but I'm still seeking gainful employment (sheesh, finding a job is a tough job!) and had better not spend my pennies galavating around the country just now.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to hearing the tales.

I would suggest re-filling the form then, penegal can work out what you mean ;) and then you'll need to make another transfer.
