The Star Mega DO is approaching in a couple of weeks, it really is likely to be a truly special, amazing, once (or three times?) in a lifetime experience. But it’s quite a lot of effort to put together a charter flight, get everyone on the trip Hyatt Diamond status, coordinate flight simulator time with United, work with Hyatt on a series of receptions, get tours of aircraft facilities, set up buses, etc. And communicate all of the relevant details to folks coming on the trip.
So there are always going to be folks who are a bit concerned about some of the details, lots of questions get posted over at Milepoint in the discussion thread for the event. And though it’s incredibly inside baseball, I thought it worth passing along a video mashup that someone did capturing the handwringing that goes one. After all, folks who figure out the minutiae of frequent flyer programs will also reasonably want to dig into all of the particulars of what to expect on this trip that they’re gearing up for.
A Star Mega DO is really quite something, touring aircraft that haven’t been revealed to the public before, meeting with airline and hotel executives, partying on a charter flight. But some of the pieces come together at the last minute, and some of the ‘specialness’ winds up as a surprise.
There’s an online genre of Hitler videos, capturing a classic film on the last days of Hitler as he frustratingly looks at the direction of the war. And subtitles are added to provide a different storyline. You ignore the German, and watch the subtitles. Hitler has become frustrated with Sarah Palin, with Microsoft Windows… And now Hitler finds out about Star Mega DO 3
I especially love Hitler declaring,
I hate the new United. Jeff Smisek took my pillows and shrunk my cookies.
And the nervous secretary being consoled that she will get her Hyatt Diamond status…
