Qantas now departs from terminal 3, where I checked in a few days ago for a flight to Shitney, nothing unusual about that except for the fact that it has a senior lane for immigration and the again for the scanner, bloody brilliant, I was through in 3 minutes while all the other queues were very long.

It may have been discussed before but what is the age to be considered a "senior"?   Additionally, what document is widely accepted to show proof of age?  If you don't have any local documents, can you use a foreign passport?  

Thanks Onemore for the head ups.  And as a side note......is Sydney really that bad?

I'm not necessarily having a go at a system that gives senior citizens priority, but from many experiences here I see that this is often at the expense of everyone else i.e. they don't allocate additional resources rather they second resources from elsewhere.  I had a nightmare 2+ hours in SM City gift wrapping at Christmas as a result of this so I'm a tad biased!

I think 60 is considered a senior here. But you have to get a card.

As a ‘totally unbiased’ ex Melbourne resident...

I can only say... pretty much yes :)

(unless you’re one of the 1% and can afford to live in a bayside suburb).

The Senior CITIZEN status applies only to Filipinos.

The clue is in bold.

In practice only the senior citizen discount is strictly applied to filipino's who have their senior card. Any other conveniences provided to seniors that do not provide a discounted price are up to the business and or office you are visiting.

Guy's I have not tried the discount thing, but I certainly have used my senior card ( my bus pass UK :whistling:) in the senior queue and it worked. :thumbsup:
