It’s a rough time of year at work, and my days are filled either with late nights at the office or with long days spent on regional jets and long drives in a rental car. What that means is that I’m missing the Star Alliance MegaDO. Randy Petersen is blogging it, though, a must read.
Randy’s initial post describes the event as
The most infamous mileage run ever conceived is ready for flight with nearly 250 frequent flyers from around the globe gathering in Chicago, New York, Frankfurt and Oslo to partake in a series of flights that serve no purpose other than to boost one’s mileage balance and to be able to talk about frequent flyer miles non- stop for four whole days … might as well include the nights as well.
But it’s more than that. bmi, Continental, Lufthansa, SAS, and United are participating, as is Airbus, and event participants are getting tours, memorabilia, and plenty of meet-and-greets.
I’m truly sorry to be missing it, but I’m keeping up with Randy as he shares the blow-by-blow.
