Not a very exciting year on the Australian aviation scene, but here goes:
- The arrival of Qantas' first A330 aircraft
- Australian Airlines is reborn

- Qantas' proposal to purchase a slice of Air New Zealand

I think like everyone else, it was the arrival of the A340-600. My personal highs were travelling VS Upper class back from SFO and probably me last ever trip in a 737-200 from Prestwick down to Stansted.

American retired it's last B727 aircraft on Apr 30th. I flew on the very final flight TPA-MIA as flight AA765, the registration of the aircraft was N864AA.
The Boeing 767 is 20 years old.
The new Sabena, SN Brussels Airlines, is born. A brand new terminal is opened at Brussels National Airport, it's the new concourse for Schengen flights (flights within the European Union).

My #1 moment is the same as Haveric's, first time elite and youngest elite in the Kunz family history.
Other moments are the 777-300ER rollout and the introduction of Pan Am (short lived) to HPN.
