Hi all.

Central Oz based FF here, been a long time lurker and finally managed to get around the Spam filters to join up (Thanks to help from the Moderator: Bill).

Semi retired multi faceted various business/s owner, I travel (according to my friends) substantially between seeing my son (8 in BNE) and Motorsport/Work trips..
29 or 30 Sectors this year so far.. Booking more as I type.. Never ends it seems.

Currently QF Silver and VA Gold (Just about to tip over to Platinum).
Swapped pretty well solely to VA after a few annoying flights with QF last year. Moved from Red to Silver to Gold in 4 months.. Way easier than QF!!
Had the pleasure of also meeting a lovely CS on a MEL-BNE (Bus) flight last year and became good friends ;) and now get to enjoy the occasional staff travel perk as well! yay!:p Shame no SC or points on them however..

I guess my Son rates a plug too, He is about to hit VA Gold at 8 years of age.. Anyone younger? Always wondered about that!

Very impressed with the amount of info on the forum and look forward to being a part of it.

And another welcome aboard ADLFF. There is a strong AFF social scene in ADL. It's always good to go along and see some fellow AFFers in person. You'll get even more from the forum.
