There are now 13 of us in the Virgin lounge and are being looked after very well by the staff.

Great hospitality from Annette and the DJ lounge staff ensured the inaugural AGM attendees did not go hungry or thirsty. Great meeting, attendance sheet signed, and many matters of global importance discussed! Hope all got home safely as I post from the comfort of the Hilton Bne bed PS my Amex card survived the pm

I have the attendance list in writing, which I will show to a few of you in 10 years, thanks to Sam's dad for signing it as the official attendance record.

Thought I should add a photo.



Thanks to the Brisbane Lounge staff for their interest in our gathering, and providing food and drinks and a quiet area for a chat.

Glad to see that it was a successful affair, I was thinking of you all.

Thank you to the organizers and not forgetting the lounge staff esp Annette and Sandy, for organizing such a wonderful AGM this afternoon. We were certainly fed well

Another great social day catching up with FTers old and new.

Thanks so much to Annette and the Virgin lounge staff for the generous hospitality afforded us...very much appreciated.

Thanks to VH-RMD for getting the show on the road...shame his revised geographical location precluded him from attending.

Thanks to samh004 for his ferrying services...also much appreciated.

And lastly, thanks to all for turning up! Hope to see you next year (whatever location it is held)

Seems like all arrived at their onward destination safely whenever.

Thanks to the lounge goddesses for their hospitality. Also thanks to the attendees / organisers for attending / organising.

Look forward to similar next year.

Was good once again to catch up with FT'ers for a steak, an afternoon of lounging and of course conversing in all things flying.

The Brisbane lounge staff did a great job. Annette,Sandy and the rest of the lounge crew were stars again, thanks tuapekastar for the lunch booking, QF WP and VH-RMD for the initial concept and the staff schmoozing.

See you all at another event somewhere.

Another great meet. Some good food, wine and conversation was had by all.

Thanks to VH-RMD & QF WP for pulling it together. A huge thanks to Annette, Sandy and the team at Virgin Australia for their fantastic hospitality on the day.

Thanks also to samh004 for the ride to Breaky Creek, tuapekastar for the lift in MEL and organising the Breaky Creek lunch and serfty for the cheap skybus tickets.



For those who are interested:
DJ 319 was operated by a refit 738 (with the 'bump') in VirginBlue livery. It had 29 rows.
DJ 354 was operated by new 738 with BSI in the new Virgin Australia livery. It had 30 rows and noticeably more leg room in row 3

It would be great!

This could be a city rotational one, or just stay in BNE. This time of year didn't seem to clash with things.

Sadly I probably still won't make it as I will still be here in VN.
