A night of celebration

Last night’s Gala Dinner was the celebration of a lifetime.

Opened by Bondi Hipsters Christiaan and Nicholas; the event really kicked off when Glee’s very own Jane Lynch (aka Sue Sylvester) too to the stage as this year’s Global Gala MC.

And to be honest, what other company on the planet celebrates the way Flight Centre does? You Flighties are certainly unique.

The black-tie event certainly saw some fabulous outfits. From flag-checked and tropical printed suits to glamorous ball gowns, we had it all!

Global Gathering is a celebration of a lifetime… it’s an experience that celebrates our extraordinary achievements year to year.

Many awards were won (full lists coming soon) and many banners were flown with pride from the main stage as attendees collected their glitzy trophies with honour!

Drinks flowed…


And pineapples, which were once table centre-pieces, soon became head attire…


In fact, looking at the scarcity of pineapples at the end of the gala last night I wonder how many will find themselves in different corners of the globe as the Flighties depart Hawaii and return to normality?!

Justice Crew kept the attendees on their feet during the award ceremony and the night was topped off with headline act Durran Durran!

It was truely a night to be remembered; and I’m sure more fabulous pictures will surface as the parties-out Flighties do!

Bloody Mary anyone?
