6. The highlight will be a visit to the spa. But lo and behold: If I pay for a 8.000 ticket, it is outrageous to pay for the spa! Write a complaint letter at the lounge.

Ahhh...but one can now get a free "massage" by requesting secondary security screening. Perhaps you have stuffed your undershorts with a rubber duckie to attract added attention.

The maximization goes further. I once observed a gentlemen imbibe so heavily in the FCT, that the PAs were unable to rouse him for the departure of his flight. Perhaps he was testing the scotch, but I wasn't paying close enough attention.

In order to maximize my FCT experience I asked the PA to have the construction cranes removed while I was there in order to get a better view of the A gates.
I have requested to ride the crew bus from just across the street in order to be the first in the F cabin and remove all the headsets.

Complain in the FCT dining area that they have ruined the Jamon Iberico by carving it.

  • insist on getting the bathroom with the tub and ask your PA for a rental laptop and whether they have adult entertainment dvds as you are planning a relaxing bathing session.
  • at the fcl b spa ask since the TG F Spa in BKK is free, if at least for the 80E sessions a happy ending is included

For 8.000 you can get 8x LH F ! Just talk to US Air Dividend Miles.:p
US Air is really cheating LH - what we are doing is just amateur stuff !! :td:

Make sure to insist on a Happy End massage ! It is standard procedure in BKK ... :o

This is a prime example of why SQ has stopped allowing longhaul C and F awards with Star Alliance.

Under pressure by the *A board recently, SQ officials thumbed their noses at the FFP directors and said that miles have become devalued lately and carriers are not willing to pay more for premium awards.

Could LH be next?

What a great thread. ^^ Thanks Rambuster for initiation and all the others for adding more food to it. ^^

From my reading I would just miss:
- Complain loudly in the FCT, that the duty free store has no Remy Louis XIII "2007 special edition" and no Mouton-Rothschild 1945 on stock
- Ask for a serving of salmon and after the first bite spit it out and insist, that only the "Nikolay cut" Balik salmon is eatable

Why a rental laptop? You are flying F. Demand a computer in the bathroom.

Complain the water temperature is not correct.

Rambuster Jan 18, 10 9:47 am

- Complain about no hot water at the FCT !
(Actually this is a legit complaint - mods please feel free to delete this post ;) )

Perhaps that's considered part of the spa treatment...

- Complain that your BP got wet in the shower
(At the NRT NH F lounge they keep your BP at the reception while you take a shower so it doesn't get wet)

Is this the reason you are a BKK regular? :o

This it OT but might be another form of F experience :D

It's not as if they have Etro toiletries one can pilfer and flog on eBay or an onsen where one can have a relaxing soak and forget about boarding a plane, though the latter may happen at NGO with its public bath.

I also noticed a massage room (with no door :p) on the way back to the reception to retrieve my BP.
