    I just received an email from Qantas Shop - selling ingenious plane design ( should read indigenous).

    Who is checking these prior to sending??

    I am not able to include the link as I am new to this forum - perhaps someone else can include the link.

    I've already brought this to the team's attention for immediate action. Apologies if any offence was taken as this was never the intention.

    I think that the March points update email included Kuala Lumpar (sic) as a destination.....

    The word 'disingenuous' comes to mind when thinking about Qantas marketing.

    Ah it makes sense now. When QF made those changes some time ago, they were meant to be Enchantments.

    This type of thing has been the subject or many posts here on AFF. The short answer is that NO-ONE appears to check e-mails or almost anything electronic imitating from Quantas; er, emanating from Quantas, I mean - oh, stuff it - close enough.

    The next step will be to introduce a $25 correct spelling surcharge.

    Difficult to see how any offence be taken and anyway who would think that it was intended to give offence?

    Ha!

    or..It's the foreign ownership restrictions that are effecting our spelling..oh wait.
    or..Jetstar now gets our proof-reading attention, while they get paid by QF
    or..we trained our proof readers how to write in another language five years ago, and now we're realising the benefits?
    and..its the unions fault, they couldn't spell to begin with.

    you obviously meant "affecting"

    to affect is to cause change, it's a verb

    effect is a caused change, it's a noun

    You should go and read Red Roo's post on the SYD-HKG thread and correct his/her use of effect/affect.

    I'm sure some people think it is an ingenious plane design by an indigenous person.
