After too many years to remember I took my last walk through the Domestic Business lounge in Melbourne this morning on my way to Adelaide. My platinum membership expires in a week and I will revert to lifetime gold (actually 172% of lifetime gold) for the first time. I made the decision as a self funded WP when the last lot of enhancements went through I think the best part of two years ago that I was not prepared to play the game anymore and now it is just about over. Actually I was not the sort of flyer that Qantas wanted or needed. I'll miss some aspects of being WP but my wallet will be a fair bit happier as I choose my flights based on best use of points and dollars. Thanks Qantas but I do feel that I have now got a fair bit of freedom.
