AFF Member Profile
This week we interviewed AFF member Infrequent traveller from Sydney. Infrequent traveller joined Australian Frequent Flyer in 2020 and has so far made 118 posts.
Q: Where did you go on your last trip?
A: My last trip was to Auckland in June on a Qantas status run.
Q: Where will you go when the current travel restrictions are lifted?
A: I would like to visit Taiwan again soon. Scheduled a trip in September to celebrate my wedding anniversary but had to have it cancelled.
Q: Favourite airline?
A: My favourite airline used to be Cathay Pacific. Their hub in Hong Kong suits me most on various long haul flights (and their business class seat configuration from Sydney is usually more than adequate).

A: Make the best use of the forum. Never be shy to ask questions and share your views and experience. AFF forum users are mostly well-informed and courteous to others.
Q: Favourite thread on AFF?
I keep a close eye on the site's home page to keep track of latest travel related news and also subscribe to a lot of topics in the community forum. The one I find particularly useful is AMEX Platinum Charge Benefits - Q&A.
