AFF Member Profile
This week, we interviewed AFF member Silvia from Melbourne. Silvia joined Australian Frequent Flyer in 2018 and has so far made 906 posts.
Q: Most recent flight?
A: Last month I used a combination of airlines through a Business reward from Singapore to Europe using Qantas points. SIN-DOH on Qsuites and BCN-DXB on Emirates First were the highlights.
Q: Favourite destination?
A: Too many but probably Peru. It's a beautiful country that has great scenery, a rich culture and great cuisine. Peruvian cuisine has definitely been under the radar.
Q: What's one thing you would never travel overseas without?
A: Noise cancelling headphones have become an important item for me. It has really increased my comfort on board regardless of class of travel. I recommend investing in a good pair.
Q: What's one piece of advice you would give to a new AFF member?
A: Ask as many questions so that you can make an informed decision of what loyalty scheme makes more sense to your current needs. The forum really has helped me to get the best use and value of my points.
Q: Favourite forum on AFF?
A: The trip report forum is really enjoyable to read and have gotten really good tips for my own travels.
