OK, but how do you get Premier? How many sectors do you have to fly? What is the Tier Point level you have to achieve? I'm in charge of a 1,435.67 travel budget this year, do I qualify?

Perhaps i'll devise some sort of "calendar usage executive club" and award tier status based on the amount of photos/lounges you contribute!

There seems to be a slight formatting issue:-

VALUES(NULL,'Gaza','MCT','LHR',3627,'2006-4-11 00:05','BA','Y','72','10J',Null,'Y','777','')
I am seeing this between the top banner and "Add flight to your log"

Very good work.

Amazing how many of us have flights booked months and months in advance.

I can see already that I will miss Gaza by a few hours on 4th April.

And I seem to have the flight furthest away at the moment - 1st August. Any advances on 1st August?

I see some people have been post-dating flights. I was shocked when I started clicking on random FT names to find some people had flown 154000 miles since the calendar's inception!

Is this in case any of us travel back in time and want to meet in CDG T-1 or SVO ?

I decided I'd spend some time sticking in everything I've done in 2005 to see the total nice and easily...to be fair, the profile does say the date of the first flight so it's not "cheating" Great feature!

I don't have the time/energy to go back beyond Jan 2005...so big credit to flyclub who seems to have added years of his travels during testing! ^

It has been 'testing' for a few months so I added to it over several weeks. However it did take a few weekends to initially track and add everything from the last three years.

I tend to hoard everything so spent ages going through all my old boarding card stubs and diaries. I think back as far as 2002 (when I was 22) was as sufficiently detailed that I could manage!

The more eagle eyed amongst you will probably notice a distinctive switch from KLM to BA/Oneworld...

I've got all my previous flights (going back to 2002) in an Excel spreadsheet. Because I'm a lazy git, I wonder if I email them to Paul, whether there's an easy way he can upload them into the database??

And for mine the flights have been held elsewhere for the best part of a year and were easily migrated onto the new system

When booking a flight from an airport where there is no lounge entered, I get garbage on the right hand side of the page.

However when I add the lounge, it all comes right again.

Can I just add, thanks to all those who have currently added lounges to the database. My contribution to the site was adding the first bunch, pictures etc so thought I'd chip a couple of quick snippets to help the process along.

1) If you are adding a lounge whereby any OW Sapphire or Emerald can enter then you only need to add the OW Sapphire or Emerald as seen in the red box here. There is no need to also add the individual status's from the blue box. Exceptions are Open Doors which I have found to include BA Golds, BA Premiers and CX Diamonds for their own business class lounges.

However, If you are adding a lounge where not all OW Sapphires and Emeralds are granted acces (for example an AA Admirals Club) then you do not add the generic 'OW Sapphire' or Emerald tabs but have to add each of the OW Sapphire and Emeralds apart from the excluded airline!

2) For airports where First and Business Class lounges for the same airline occur (eg. Heathrow Terminal 4, Sydney) then don't forget to allow OW Emeralds and First Class passengers access to Business Class lounges too

3) Please check to make sure the lounge you are about to add isn't already on the system.

4) If you have a photo it'll be greatfully received Adds to the overall 'sexiness' of the calendar

Thanks
Fraser

I have a few glamour shots of me in my BA uniform larking about with some of the lovely ladies in the LGW Terraces Lounge.

Not sure if that's what you meant!?!
