  2. Gary, how do you get notified of MR deals? I assume you don’t get an alert on ever single post in the MR forum and don’t sit all day reloading the forum page.

  3. Got one trip for a party of three. Upon trying to book the second trip, gone!

    @FBKSan — If these do turn out to be coach tickets, at least refunds should be easily obtained.

  4. Gary, I also subscribe as a Live Bookmark in Firefox. Is there something you use that keeps it more ‘in your face’?

  5. i finally joined flyer talk! these are great deals!!!

    gary, how do i subscribe to the rss feeds? i’m not the most tech literate and couldn’t find it on Flyer Talk’s site.


    p.s. i’m still drooling over qantas’ first class seats and lounges
