If anyone is looking for a Qantas award flight back to the U.S. in business, BNE-MEL-SFO is available on May 25 and 27 and BNE-LAX-SFO is available on May 27 and 28. Haven't checked past the 28th.

Tomorrows QF $100 each way Birthday sale is ORD-BNE for OZ Fest dates. I'll probably be too busy to go online but its the last chance. If you are one of the lucky ones that can get through on the crashing website.

Welcome aboard. We do not get many people from Europe

37 have signed up as Platinum Definite
15 have signed up as Gold Maybe - possible
3 have signed up as Silver Interested
2 have indicated Bronze can't make it
Of the 37 who are Platinum 21 are from Australia, 11 from USA, 4 from NZ & 1 from EU
Expect we will have 40~45 attend

2 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 01 SYD 2004 (21 attended) (5%)
5 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 02 SYD 2005 (58 attended) (13%)
23 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 13 OOL 2016 (44 attended) (62%)
23 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 14 NTL 2017 (42 attended) (62%)
23 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 15 MCY 2018 (40 attended) (62%)
23 of the 37 attended Oz Fest 16 SYD 2019 (49 attended) (62%)
But not the same 23 people

Welcome aboard ^
Real Canadian maple syrup drizzled over Tim Tams sounds good

Does anybody know what the current status is of breakfasts for Honors Gold at the Hilton? I've dropped to a lowly Gold and my only stays there had been as Diamond where it was comp full buffet or the lounge. The Hilton breakfast thread indicates continental only with a $10 charge for full buffet but that's from 2016.

If it's like last year in Sydney I didn't even get an upgrade as a Diamond as I only stayed there for the Sat night as it was chokka with so many US Diamond members so don't want to rely on getting a lounge breakfast as an exec floor room obviously isn't guaranteed and the room rate with breakfast isn't bad right now.

Sadly, I need to drop to Bronze. I need to be in Israel during those dates. Hopefully I can join the 2021 Oz Fest.

I just released a J award SFO-SYD on UA, so hopefully UA makes it available.
