To further foster the community spirit of sharing on AFF, I wish to invite you to consider putting your hand up for a FREE pass to the Qantas Club including its International Business Lounges.

The pass is for a single visit for one person (no guest allowed) who has a same-day QF or JQ ticket.

Please see the photo for all QC conditions

Most of the 'usual suspects' on AFF would not require this pass as they are all P1, WP or SG already.

I wish the passes to benefit those who would not otherwise be able to sample the lounge before their next international flight.

At the same time, it should 'reward' those who has been enriching our forum with posts rather than the occasional transients.

So, my wish list would include the following essentials:

1) AFF membership before (or in) Feb 2013 [Mar 2013 or later needs not apply]

2) You need to have between 50-300 posts at the time of your request

3) PS (Silver) or NB (Bronze) or No-Status pax only

4) The proposed travel needs to be before end of Dec 2013

5) You need to PM me - in only 25 words (max) - why you should be given the FREE pass [26 words would disqualify you instantly :evil:]


I would keep this open for 3 days - until 11pm AEST Sunday 5th May 2013 - to allow a fair chance to all.

No entry would be accepted after that time.

Now, there would be no debate or correspondence as to why I choose the final entries.

Unless you object, I would then list the AFF 'handles" of the winners on the following day.

********

The good news is that I have more than one pass to give out.


********

Good luck to all the relatively junior members of AFF.

Nice to see you spreading the joy of lounges!

I'm looking for a pass so that both my non-status parents can join me in the lounge before we head off to LOTFAP in June but unfortunately I fail too many criterias :(

Good luck to all the newbies out there!

(on a side note, would PS be considered as not being able to sample the lounge? Considering they get a complementary pass upon (re-)qualifying PS)

I was gonna say, when I saw the title "Qantas J Lounge FREE passes - to good homes", I thought dom J lounge straight away.. then wondered if such passes exist and how one would get one.

Anyway, you might want to change the title due to ambiguity.

Point #3 in the OP would suggest silver is eligible.

I know but if his aim was to allow someone who doesn't have the means to ever try the Intl J Lounge that limits it to NB/non-status since PS get a complimentary invite every year.

But I digress, the OP made the rules and those are the rules.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

It's correct.

My thinking is to help those who are not "seasoned" warriors who could not (or only annually) sample the J lounge.

That includes the PS.

But status would not be a deciding factor in my decision; a non-status pax with a good 25-word storyline would be as eligible as a PS :D

BTW, I would make the decision known after the deadline so if you do not hear from me before that, do not feel despondent at all.

Some of the early entries already caught my attention.

48 hrs to go !

So far the entries have not completely exhausted my offer as yet.

'Junior' AFFers in particular, here's your chance to grab a pass to while away in the INT (J) lounge prior to departure.

Hi legroom,

You mentioned that you had a few to give away......I'm wondering, I also have 2 passes, one expires in sept 2013, and the other in October 2013.
however, my family and I are not flying till late November.
if the lucky person who wins your lottery is planning on using your pass in the near future, do you think we could swap the passes, so they get mine, and I get yours.....

just a thought, otherwise, if mine are going to waste, I to will give them away on AFF.

thanks

TQ

Yes, yours was received.

Guys, whether your entry was on day 1 or at 22:59 on Sunday, it has an even chance for my eyeballs.

Plus, I have more than one pass to give away.

It seems a reasonable thought.

Will consider it.

Hello

23:00 Sunday

Entries are now closed.

I will list the handles of the winners by 10am tomorrow unless you give me written objection (by PM) before that time.

I will PM the winners to request name/address for posting out the passes.

Regards

EDIT: Travelqueen posted that their pass expired in OCT while mine in DEC, any winner travelling before OCT please let me know ASAP so that TRAVELQUEEN would swap their pass with mine. If I do not hear from any winner, I will post out the DEC passes.

I'm fine with you swapping passes for Travelqueen.


Thanks again Legroom.
