    Notice the booking form on the home page of Qantas has gained a link to a Multi City booking page.

    Now I just need to figure out why the page has the title HMPA!


    Here's the page: HMPA

  3. This is an acronym without all of the vowels describing that class of pax who will achieve membership of the mile high club on completion of the selected flights

    While the link on the Qantas page is new, the multi-city booking engine has been around for a long time.

    It was previously available to agents, but not generally advertised for normal people.

    Good to see Qantas pulling rabbits out of the hat again :)

    At least it saves on certain surcharges and allows better interlining of flights.

    It probably has nothing whatsoever to do with hexamethylphosphoramide, but how many times do you get to reference hexamethylphosphoramide in a post on a frequent flyer forum? :D

    Indeed. I googled and got something similar to that! Decided that was not what it was. We could try and work it into our postings somehow.

    What it isnt about hexamethylphosphoramide? When I saw the abbreviation for hexamethylphosphoramide I felt sure that someone must have intended a topic about hexamethylphosphoramide. If it isnt about hexamethylphosphoramide, then what is it about? Maybe a QF IT person has hexamethylphosphoramide? Or maybe they have the same initials as the abbreviation for hexamethylphosphoramide? Wouldnt it be a coincidence if they both had hexamethylphosphoramide and the initials as the abbreviation for hexamethylphosphoramide? I wonder how many people have hexamethylphosphoramide and the initials of the abbreviation for hexamethylphosphoramide?

    To get this post about hexamethylphosphoramide back on topic, how many cities did the person with hexamethylphosphoramide fly to and was it on QF?

    Are you allowed to take hexamethylphosphoramide aboard in your hand luggage?

    Someone is going to use Google to search for hexamethylphosphoramide and they will ver surprised to end up surfing an Australian FF forum :rolleyes:.

    You don't think AFF is a natural home for hexamethylphosphoramide?

    You probably are allowed to take hexamethylphosphoramide in your checked luggage, and take hexamethylphosphoramide in your carry on if not travelling to/from or through US, UK, Philippines, India or Canada. However to carry hexamethylphosphoramide you must have a prescription for hexamethylphosphoramide from your doctor.

    AFF might not be a natural home for hexamethylphosphoramide, but with the number of times we have mentioned hexamethylphosphoramide in this thread, I expect any future Google search for hexamethylphosphoramide will surely have this treat near the top of the results :rolleyes:.

    Oh well, perhaps the future hexamethylphosphoramide searcher can learn something about travel at the same time :D.

    Could be a good opportunity to tap into the much neglected Frequent Flying Organic Chemist market.

    Something tells me there are a number of posters on this thread who are extremely grateful for the cut-and-paste function on their computers!

    hexamethylphosphoramide hexamethylphosphoramide hexamethylphosphoramide hexamethylphosphoramide

    Yay for ctrl-v!

    I just hope the first person who typed in hexamethylphosphoramide actually spelled it correctly :p.

    hehehe.

    So which word in the English language is most often spelled incorrectly?

    [Question courtesy of Dave Noble, so he is not allowed to answer :p.]

    Hint, its not hexamethylphosphoramide.

    dumbell by proportion, or receive by count.

    I would have thought your answer would vary depending on what you sampled to get your result. I do know that "misspell" is a word that is spelled wrong fairly often.
