The Flying Mega FT Do

Mega doesn’t seem big enough to describe the Do being arranged by a team of FlyerTalkers.

It starts with festivities in Chicago hosted by United, then a party flight to Newark. More activities hosted by Continental, then a cross-town trip to JFK for the intercontinental party flight. This is just day one of the Star Alliance Mega Do.

To follow there are more activities at 3 more airports in 3 countries in Europe over the following 3 days, involving Lufthansa, SAS and Airbus, charter flights with two aircraft flying in tandem, Randy and some moderators as your flight attendants, and more.


Special fares for the charter and party flights, as well as connecting flights to and from this flying do have been arranged. There will even be miles credited on the charter flights, at least to some frequent flyer programs.

The first bookings (for US and trans-atlantic flights) start today. Check the current do thread to see what you need to do to participate in the FT do that surely will be talked about for years.

Sometimes, once is not enough, as in the case with the Continental Airlines OnePass frequent flier loyalty program:

The Internet web sites of airlines are apparently not immune either:

Once can suppose the grass is really greener on the other side…
