    Those who can get The Australian on Saturday should check out the Travel Section...seems there might be an article of interest.

    Got it, haven't read it, where should I look (very time poor).
     
  5. MetroAir, you have next Saturday's Australian already?

    If you have Friday's paper too, can you tell me what tomorrow night's Powerball numbers are going to be?

    ;)

    No, not particularly...not until Saturday anyway :twisted: . A morsel - admin knows what I'm talking about :wink: ...

    Amazing, they haven't even confirmed the layout yet, MetroAir :shock: - as swissbignose said, I think you're a litle ahead of yourself. Time poor people often mis-read questions :eek: .

    I don't suppose the Australian on Saturday is going to be available in the LAX AC?

    You might be able to get it online, KiwiFlyer. Saturday's Australian would be brought across by the 3 LAX-bound flights and eventually get up to the AC & FL.

    Yeah, OK, I didn't read the question right. :shock:

    I guess as I haven't read last weeks paper yet, I probably won't get to read this weeks either.

    Will someone post a 5 word synopsis after the event pleas?

    Cheers

    Did a journalist finally realise how much we are being shafted by airlines over Fuel surcharges and write an article about it?

    Or is it an expose on the benefits of AA?

    I look forward to reading a copy on Sat. Hopefully the QP will still have one when I'm travelling through it (That is assuming the vultures havn't stolen all of the copies as per usual... inconsiderate gits!).

    Good article with a large amount of facts that are true!

    Good on you LW for coming out of the closet with regards your FF preferences, I wonder if your QF file will have an amendment to the seating preferences to read - rear cabin - middle seat :twisted:

    Meanwhile your AA account might well get a CIP tag!

    Had a look this morning over a long black in Stone's Corner; the article doesn't go into much detail over the reasons for LW's "defection" to AAdvantage; maybe the paper doesn't want to offend one of their advertisers too much... :?

    Yeah a good article bar the obvious journo misinterpretation of the cost of FF points.

    Tried to look for an online version, but it doesn't seem to exist.

    Oh well.
