Anyone interested in 01Feb FT/AN celebration?

I'm thinking of ditching work and grabbing a quick r/t to SYD or somesuch - partly for miles, partly to welcome onboard AN-III (or whatever). Anyone else planning something? Maybe we could have FT meet up or mini meet in one of the GW Clubs?!!

Comments?!

Richard,

I'm on the first AN service out of Melbourne :_)

Ansett is based in Melbourne, and Sydney gets AN1. Go figure...

Cheers,

Justin

AN4 Justtin?

It's great to see the old/real flight numbers back!!

It might well be an option - don't have to get out of work, and really celebrate!!!

Yep,

It's in the first batch of first flights round the country.

* AN203 BNE-SYD at 0500 (GMT+10)
* AN001 SYD-MEL at 0600 (GMT+11)
* AN004 MEL-SYD at 0600 (GMT+11)

* AN330 ADL-MEL at 0600 (GMT+10.5)

* AN154 PER-SYD at 0610 (GMT+8)

If you want to fly AN on the first day, fly on the first flight http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif I'd love to be on AN001 with SEQ1

I'm sure they'll be doing something special.

Cheers,

Justin

I'm on AN330 on 01/02, flying back on AN355, which means I'm in MEL from around 7:40am until 7:55pm. I'll probably end up around town somewhere, but if someone wants to meet up, I'd love to catch up. But I'm guessing Justin and Richard will be up in SYD. Dagnamit!

Oh Lord, why am I consitently tempted to outlay so much money on such trivial cr*p???!!!

I'm already going on the first QF 738 flight on 4 Feb (BNE-SYD @ 5am - subject to them changing the flight schedules).

Now it looks I'll be on the 6am to MEL on 1 Feb.

I was also extremely close to outlaying more dollars for the last QF 747SP flight at the end of February (SYD-NOU-HNL-SYD in one hit).

Man - you people are killing me, and my wallet. Just keep quite and stop telling me about all these firsts.

I am very tempted to do AN4 returning on AN27 or so. Still shows as $154+taxes (14 day adv purchase L fare). If I wasn't working I'd fly to SYD and stay overnight for AN1, but I'm not that crazy http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/tongue.gif

Justin, I'm real tempted!!!

You were on the first UA777 flight, right?

Now be the first to fly on the first New Ansett service http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

Justin

I'll see you onboard then http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

Trent, try & squeeze something out of the agents at ADL - be the first person to check in or something.

Cheers,

Justin
