12 Months of Pointy End of The Plane

12 Months of Pointy End of The Plane

Wow, it is hard to believe that it was 12 months ago that I registered pointyendoftheplane.com and started this blog. It began as a hobby and still is very much is a hobby.

In the last 12 months, I have somehow managed to put out 138 posts covering both my holiday adventures with miles & points as well as general miles & points news that affects Australian flyers. If you are to believe google analytics, there are even a few 'regular' readers of the site now, and over the last 12 months, the active user bases have built quite nicely considering I haven't done any form of marketing.


Unfortunately, because this site is only a hobby and not my actual job, every so often life takes over, and I don't get time to generate much content. In fact, the last eight weeks has very much been like that, so for the handful of regular readers that check in, I do apologise. But I have another holiday coming up which will give me the chance to generate some more content, and I can't wait to have the time and head space to write again.

Top 5 Articles

I thought it would be fun to have a quick look at google analytics and see what the top 5 posts in the last 12 months were, and here they are;

  1. Virgin Australia UpgradeMe Bid Experience
  2. Review: Thai Airways 747 Business Class Sydney to Bangkok
  3. Velocity Now Has Digital Cards for Apple Wallet and Android Pay
  4. Review: Etihad Apartments Sydney to Abu Dhabi - Probably my favourite flight of all time!
  5. Review: Virgin 777 'The Business' LAX-SYD - Probably my favourite business class product

What's Next

As I mentioned above, according to Qantas it is 56 days until we depart on our next Holiday and I can't wait.


I will be writing lots of reviews including Emirates Frist Class, Singapore Airlines Business class and we will be getting the chance to also fly on Etihad Apartments again which to date has been our favourite airline product.

I also have several articles that are currently in draft that I will hopefully get time to complete and post in the coming months, so hit the Facebook like button and stay tuned.
