Just noticed that the Virgin Blue website booking comfirmation page now has a feature that enables you to create a flight reminder in your Outlook calendar. Neat! :)

I've attached small screen-shot.

That would be quite useful. At present I have to enter my QF flights manually into my outlook calendar which is then sync'd with my phone calendar.

If your travel agent is part of the Galileo system, then you will be allocated a booking ref that you can use at https://www.viewtrip.com to view your itineraty, print your e-ticket reciepts and (through their use of a third party product; Infuzer) add to your electronic calendar product - and not just the Micro$oft centric Outlook option DJ offer - it also works with Lotus Notes, Palm Calendar and others, and from Firefox as well as IE. I've been doing this for years now and with only the occasional hiccup.

oh - I forgot to mention too - it will add any airline's flights, hotel bookings and car rentals to your calendar as well... not just the one airline's bookings...

Yes, I've used this myself on international flights. I found that by comparison with the system Virgin Blue is now using, it dumps a bit too much info into Outlook, but I guess it's easy to delete what you don't need.
