I admit - perhaps I'm spoilt being an aussie living in asia. A lot of the problems people have mentioned (what irritates ...) I haven't experienced here. For me, (traveling 10%F, 30%C, and 60%Y or below) I've always had pleasant experiences. Perhaps need to travel more? But, I LOVE traveling in planes. What do other people love about flying?

Yes redrat, I love the points too! :D Other things that come to mind:

* Unexpected upgrades - once to Hawaii was upgraded to first both ways
* Chocolate sundaes when tropics bound
* The minature bourbon bottles :wink:
* Charming Japanese flight attendants - nothing is ever a bother
* The view of the harbour coming into SYD
* Seeing famous people - last month saw Jackie Chan inbound ICN. Other times have been seated next to politicians :cry: and once, a famous fashion designer
* That movie you've been wanting to see is on the small screen
* Eating my partner's breadroll. I know it's sick - but I just love those little fellas :shock:

Decent scotch on board and in the lounges ... pitty I am always disappointed with QF in this area, and delighted with BA.

1. I'm also a "love flying" for the experience of being up there...and now loving a job that does include travel :idea:
2. I'll admit to being a slight snob - elite status is very nice and after 3 years, I don't want to give it up easily (op ups, ODU's, U seats appearing through Yield Management) - and my wife loves the perks (paying Y and flying J for most of our trips in the past 2.5 years)
3. Entry to F lounges (particularly the QF/BA F lounge in SIN, F Lounge or Concorde Room at LHR or AA Flagship Lounge at LAX)
4. When Qantas put on a party, they really know how to!! (when they smoozed their top 100 Plat FF's last year in BNE, SYD and MEL with a black-tie sit-down meal in a QF hanger at the airport, with John Travolta and his refitted 707)

But all-in-all, getting something back from QF for all the time and money I spend with them.
