AusBT, I think jimmyair is saying that if his entry is chosen as the winner you should ignore it and choose somebody else. :P

I reckon the chance to score two free return trips on the best Australian Business class product( In fact is there a better domestic Business class seat in the world?) would be considered news.

Sure - Glenn wrote "Love traveling on wide-bodied planes, especially between Syd and Perth. Plus Business class legroom is a godsend for 6 feet tall people like me!".

Lining up another great contest for next month, fingers crossed!
