    Hehe. Yeah read that article a while ago.

    Similar to Molly Meldrum's dilemma with his FF points being credited to another "Molly Meldrum".

    Wouldn't mind at least a peak into a domestic CL lounge. Obviously I hang around the wrong ppl :D

    What's also interesting to read at the above link is the story entitled "Bangkok: How Qantas risked safety to save money". Mind you the Qantas biggots on this forum would still argue that Qantas is the safest airline in the world and without a major crash.

    Me, I'd rather take my chances and fly an airline that I can expect quality service on, even at the back of the plane!

    Oooh. Opening a can of worms there you are!

    How QF handled the BKK incident is interesting.

    However... I'd fly QF over most other airlines in a flash. There are many other airlines that fly into BKK that I wouldn't trust though...

    Well remembered Lindsay and meloz. It also jogged my memory.

    IIRC, the bit about the woman with 2 young children being downgraded to accommodate the CL's family was announced on AFF with a certain degree of glee and gloating. The poster was promptly invited to lose the "attitude". Don't actually recall seeing further posts from this person, but then I don't even recall the name.

    Well you have the correct memory of this person, tuapekastar. But I won't name them on the thread, to save them embarrassment (plus, I'm a gentleman). They don't post any more here (but probably lurks).

    I remember the name as well. He posted another question on upgrade eligibility a couple of months after his spectacular debut on AFF but has been quiet since then.

    Interesting :!:

    There is something juicy to be revealed here but the natives have closed ranks. :

    I will have to check through all members to find gossip. :oops: Serves me right for not paying attention in the first place. :oops:

    The poster did subsequently edit his posts and remove what he had posted, so there is only a little bit of evidence left of what he posted. Which is a good thing given his attitude.

    If it's the same as FT, then it isn't that juicy

    Ah.. the old edit the post trick. I hate it when people do that. :x

    Everybody made it sound very juicy. :? No point in going back over old posts trying to find the "edited" not so juicy gossip then. :lol:

    I would not have described the contect as juicy (and I think it was a bit different to what was on FT). As has been mentioned it was about the attitude (e.g. the way he talked about getting someone downgraded)
