01FEB08 AKL I QP *
01FEB08 SYD T3 QP 1045-1145 QF524 - can guest 1

Will add more flights as they come along. There is also a flight to/from PER to be slotted in, as well as possibly some for FT AGM #7....

* Haven't booked this flight yet, but will probably be LA801, which probably means getting to the airport at OMG o'clock (or camping in the terminal overnight).

Not staying for golf?
Hmmm...they say golf is a game with its traditions rooted deep in history. My own golf game on the other hand, is simply rooted. :shock:

I'll have a squizz at the relevant thread and the times etc. and see whether I can make it. Any further updates I'll make in that thread. :D

At the time of day you are travelling, that lounge can get very crowded.

No less than 5 long haul QF/BA flights depart T4 between 9:15pm and 10:00pm every night - that's more than 70 F & 250 J Seats. When you include the numerous BA Gold, BA Silver, oneworld emerald and sapphire all possibly trying to use the facility around the same time it can be a 'zoo'.

If you want to enjoy the facilities more, get there by 7pm.

Cheers for the heads up on that. Actually have to change this flight, so I might go out on the 11am instead.

Thanks Serfty,
Looking forward to this trip as it is the first of many Int trips I will be doing.. I am gonna try and get in early on the 19th as I am bussing it in to LHR and I am gonna wanna wind down before the flight.. Just hoping the upgrade comes through.. just hate the fact that I am a NB with AA plat status.. doesn't help much, could someone check J and Y+ availability on that for me?
