Hi All,

Never been in an airport lounge, or flown anything other than economy. Saving my Velocity points to try and knock off both of these in one go, hopefully by next year!

Looking forward to hearing some of the tricks and tips that you all use to boost this and get the most out of your travel.

cheers,

brendan

Welcome aboard!

I don't really fly anything other than Y either but there's definitely ways to make that more enjoyable.

Hi Brendan
I accumulated ~300K Velocity points before even reaching any status. The guy at the lounge counter was amazed when hew saw my points balance on a free silver lounge pass. Enjoy your first upgrade to business but try for one of the big planes as it's way more special ;)

It's an addictive pastime - welcome

Out of interest, i am flying QF583 Syd-Perth @19:30 tomorrow night and wondering if any QF FF would be able to invite me into the lounge as a guest? Would love the chance to see what all the fuss is about.

Cheers,
Brendan

There is a "Lounge meet ups" thread where you can post your flight times and let everyone know you would like to be guested into a lounge - you can also see if anyone else is offering lounge access that day. http://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/community/lounge-meetups-for-2015/
