Hello all,

I have been reading and following AFF for a while now. Decided to finally introduce myself and start contributing to the site. I spend a lot of time on planes and in airport lounges worldwide. Would have probably already seen some of you without even knowing it. I'm hoping to make some travel friends on here. Maybe catch up in the lounges or on the planes. Happy to guest people into lounges too since I normally fly solo. =]

Do say hi or send a message. Happy flying!!!

Hopefully we will meet you in person at the Adelaide dinner in September. I think it's the 12th? There's a thread about it somewhere :)

Thank you all for the amiable welcome. Will definitely avail myself to some upcoming events. Sure beats sitting alone on the plane or in the lounge. =]

I will bring the thread back to life early July, and you are correct; it is the 12th

Thanks Buzzard, will definitely keep in mind that thread.

RooFlyer, I'm currently at 75K elite. Although I can't see any justification going beyond 50K anymore. Especially with the changes made with using eUpgrade credits now.

Totally agree. 50K gets you *A Gold and lounge access.

I live in Tasmania but come across to Calgary regularly, like now. Watching the Stanley Cup.

Current trip report via AC here.

Oh cool. Lucky you. I actually saw a few NHL games in Toronto a few months back during the regular season playoffs.

Great trip report. Nice to see the familiar AC planes. AC33 and AC34 are my usual flights between SYD and YYZ. I always enjoy breaking out my French onboard just for the fun of it. Haha...

Haha... The crew wouldn't be too pleased if I said that. Although not all of them speak French. Erm... tabernacle?

Or taber-noosh? I guess Host*e ton jus d'orange is right out of the question then? :shock: (Yes, I spent a year in up-country Quebec and learned all the ecclesiastical profanities :shock: ) But am very rusty now. I probably would be struggling just to give mild offence properly.

I was shocked when our petite, mild secretary let fly a string of English swear words (really hard core!) which to her was an expression of simple frustration using some foreign language words not widely understood there!

LA Kings win the Stanley Cup in double overtime!

Oh yeah, the Quebecois can really curse and swear well in French. Although with the accent, a lot of words can sound like swearing. Haha... Did she sound natural swearing in English?

Must have been a great game. Pity only 1 Canadian team made it through this season.

Welcome to AFF neodeoxys!

Thank you John. Hope to meet you at an event one day.
