    I went on one a few years ago. Was good fun, very family orientated tho (ie children absolutely everywhere on the plane!).

    All in all, good fun and a good day out. The Goodies bag included free parking (which was nice and unexpected!), DJ pen, DJ playing cards, water, some health care things, couple of cd's and mags etc. Wonder what they'll include this year.

    Leny, did you end up going?

    Did anyone else from AFF go?

    I'm interested in how it went and what you thought of it.

    No, I didn't. I went to buy tickets the night before when I was sure that I could go, but it sold out.
