The Eurobonus Forum Kafé

Welcome everybody to the Eurobonus Forum Lounge Thread™

This Lounge thread is a Lounge thread with an absolutely Scandinavian touch. Its intended as a place for the Eurobonus forum community to hang out, chit chat, introduce yourself, to find out what everyone is up to, to ask & answer questions that perhaps don't need a new thread.

Let's keep all OT in the Lounge! If you can provide Airport Lounge access to non-EBG, non-C passengers, please post where & when here.

Guidelines
  • Off-topic discussions are very much allowed in this thread, but remember — this is not the OMNI forum, so please do not treat this thread as such.
  • This thread is subject to the same guidelines, rules, terms and conditions governing FlyerTalk.
  • Please try to respond to multiple posts at the same time by including the quotes in one post. This helps to reduce the incessant “bumping” of this thread and also may make this thread easier to read.

I'd like to begin to welcome everybody to the Lounge and propose a coming DO in ARN/OSL/CPH if the Boeing-trip is moved to this fall.

Great idea to get a lounge thread going.

I'd be happy to attend an interim DO at ARN/OSL/CPH (in that order of preference actually). I wonder if the DO could do all three.

Meet in the ARN lounge with some AM tickets to CPH, get to CPH, meet more people in the lounge and all get on a flight to OSL, enjoy the lounge in OSL, then back to ARN.

Or whichever permutation of these locations ends the day in the location that has the cheapest vodka.

Haha, that would be fun and so difficult to explain to my girlfriend

I did BKK-SIN-CGK-SIN recently with a 45 minute stopover at CGK. The surprised crew asked me "if you were going to SIN why didn't you stay in SIN 1.5 hours ago when you were there?".

I was reluctant to tell them about my milage run so I told them that the Mexican chili in the lounge was excellent and "worth the trip".

Hmm, this sounds a bit "strict". We all know that humour is an integral part of this forum, and often caused by spontaneous comments to a post.

"Forking" off humour from one thread and into here would make this single thread hard to read (with multiple discussions going on at the same time), and often our humour threads also contain pieces of real info.

I am not a moderator here and can't really set any rules at all - I just quoted the above from KiwiFlyer in the SIA Lounge thread. I agree that we don't have a problem with OT in the Eurobonus forum.

Noticed that one as well, strange. But, nice intiative with this thread! This will be fun!

Haha, no worries - she was more impressed by the fact that we visited the Royal Highness room at ARN and that he had such a small tv

I stumbled upon this thread by accident.

If anyone needs any assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to ask me...

Hopefully this will help generate some sustained traffic for the SAS forum -- and maybe some of it can spill over into the Scandinavian region forum here on FT too.

As the resident Dirty Old Man of the Delta Lounge, I felt it was my duty to come over here and make sure that the Eurobonus Forum Lounge got off to a good start.

(Translation: I figured I would poke around and see if there are any beautiful Scandinavian blondes hanging around the lounge -- that is exactly the kind of bonus I look for whenever I visit Europe.)

Just for clarification: men comprise the majority of "beautiful people" here so far. But if you need help with getting a look at some SAS assets, Tommy777 has some good pictures for you.

Dovster, are you really here to look for some EuroBonus points since that gift of SkyMiles never came through? I'm on the same quest.

Please note that I spelled "blonde" with an "e". My equal opportunity lechery does have its limits.

Blond, blonde. Sounds French to me.
