Way too much travel

I knew I had spent too much time travelling of late. I've been upgraded by Qantas to Silver Frequent Flyer status. Going into the frequent flyer site and I have more than enough points to fly from Brisbane to Auckland - Business class - in frequent flyer points. Nice.

Airport terminals

Having recently flown half way across the world, I must say that, in general, airline terminals are pretty bleak. They are rarely distinguishable from each other, many have no comfortable waiting areas and they are general the dullest places on earth to be.

A few things I'd like to see

  • Areas within the security zones with larger comfortable chairs

  • Decor beyond 'airport terminal'

  • Quiet zones with no announcements and no cell phones allowed

Granted, some of this is available if you are an airline club member. But memberships are rather expensive and when you only fly a couple of times a year, the cost is hard to justify.

Back and blogging again

Being overseas and too lazy to attempt to remember my user id and password means that the blog has been neglected of late. Perhaps I will do better now that I'm back.

Nothing like being away to make people appreciate you more. Back 1/2 a day and had a couple of meetings and several emails that needed to be dealt with.
