Brisbane Airport (BNE) Air New Zealand Lounge

We left our hotel on a paid shuttle bus (AUS $5 each) a bit after 7:30 AM, and we're now comfortably seated in a very pleasant Air New Zealand lounge.

Security this morning was metal detectors, and the automated exit passport control was a breeze.

We were denied entry to the adjacent Singapore lounge, even though the sign reads "Star Gold." The woman told us we had to go where we were invited, and seemed to have no concept of the significance of that sign. Oh well... this lounge is perfectly pleasant.

We have nearly 90 minutes before boarding Air Canada #36. It's due to depart today - Tuesday - at 10:40 AM (5:40 PM yesterday at home), and our landing at YVR (Vancouver) is scheduled for 7:10 AM PDT Tuesday morning, 7351 air miles later.

We've completed most of a circumnavigation of the world since flying out of YVR a couple of weeks ago, something over 22,000 miles in four different business class offerings.

We suspect AC will stack up pretty well, but we'll have a better idea 16 hours from now.
