What an amazing opportunity, I would be jumping around the room like a maniac biggrin.gif . I hope you are telling the truth unsure.gif it would be pretty sad to plan an imaginary honeymoon. Why does everyone doubt her story (sorry I don't visit the wedding section very often so I'm a bit clueless)?

In order of sucess:

1. Buy a business class ticket

2. Be a top tier FF (Chairmans Lounge or QF/OW Platinum)

3. Ask really nicely

I have not heard of the last one working on legacy carriers in the last 5 years but you have nothing to lose by asking!

Upgrades of casual travellers on long haul sectors are few and far between these days. On the LA, LHR route it can be hard to buy a seat in business.
If I were a scientist working in a big lab, I'd shout EUREKA! every so often just to boost morale.

Hello!

Thanks for all your reply s. I'm going to try reply to as many as I can biggrin.gif

We won it through an online comp (http://www.qantas.com.au/info/oneworld) first time ever I have won a major prize like that, I am still stoked!

Wow, i just read about some of you not believing me, well trust me I didn't believe it either. I did actually buy the newspaper but could not find the section were the names were printed, however I have got emails and postal mail to confirm everything which is the main thing. Our post code at the time was 3021, and we are not listed in the white pages as the phone line is in my name, and it is a private number. (Kir you said our number was listed in the white pages, are you sure??)

With world trips, we are told that we can only go in one direction and not backtrack through any continents so when we plan everything its got to be literally around the world lol.

Have you decided where you are going to go? I think it would be really overwhelming! (in a good way)
