Great! Good luck! Please communicate out-of-band your airline and direct extension. You might get a posse of travellers that would want a knowlegeable chap on the other end of the phoneline. ^

Indeed, congratulations and the very best of luck on your new job!!!

Of course from now on we expect lots of insight information about how the airline industry works...so I hope you won't let us down!!

I suppose you'll also be facing both the fun and the hard parts of moving abroad, it can get rather tricky and frustrating at times but you'll get used to it.

On a totally different subject:

With record-breaking 2005 annual sales, Lexus retains its title as America's top-selling luxury brand for the sixth consecutive year. The automaker today reported total year-end sales of 302,895 units, up 5.5 percent over last year's record-breaking sales. Lexus also scored an all-time, best- ever month with 35,186 units sold.

I told you so Tommy777

Thank you for all your congratulations! I'm really looking forward to starting there, but of course have some worries about working in a different country. I'll be relocating in less than a month and have a ton of things to take care of first..

Gnoops, nice to hear that you got a job that you wanted.

I´ve never been to Dublin, but I guess it´s a fun place. Very expensive to live in. Especially rents are supposed to be real bad. But what you lose in rent, you get back in Guiness.

I got seat 82K which is top floor emergency exit - the same as 17K on SQ. Please note that 82A does not have the same legroom!

I enjoyed a Japanese 6 course (!) meal and then slept like a baby for 8 hours and woke up relaxed in NRT. The seats are pretty similar to SQ SpaceBeds with a slightly angled flatbed. I'd prefer something fully horisontal though.

Did you get to enjoy the new Star Alliance terminal in NRT? I believe it opened two days ago. Any impressions?

There should now be an arrivals lounge to enjoy if you arrive on a longhaul flight in C or F, it doubles as domestic lounge as well.

I got the old price - 38.800 plus taxes. If you divide the price per segment you get really good deals
