The operations of Scandinavian Airlines System — which is more popularly known as SAS — have been substantially disrupted by a strike of its pilots in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, which has led to hundreds of cancellations of flights and thousands of delays; and directly affecting tens of thousands of passengers.
The strike started yesterday, Friday, April 26, 2019 and is expected to continue until the end of the day on Monday, April 29, 2019 — resulting in thousands of passengers being inconvenienced, as greater than 70 percent of the entire schedule of flights of the airline has reportedly been canceled.

Both the US/transatlantic portion and the European leg of the flying mega do are now open for booking.

- Chicago party hosted by United
- Party flight to Newark
- Newark party hosted by Continental
- Party bus to JFK
- Party flight to Frankfurt
- flights back are included in the special fare
- Champagne breakfast
- Charter flights to Toulouse (via Oslo), with Randy & a team of slaves moderators serving onboard

- Charter flight to Frankfurt
- Frankfurt all-day event hosted by Lufthansa
- 15,000 frequent flyer miles for the charter flight (select FFPs only)
The time to secure your place is now. The USA/transatlantic bit is optional (but sounds like so much fun). All you need to know in order to book is in the first 4 posts of the mega do thread.
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:
- CO.com sucks

- United.com sucks
- Air Canada website sucks
- USAir’s website basically sucks
FlyerTalk member and moderator tommy777 has big plans for autumn 2009.
If tommy777 has it his way, FlyerTalk member and founder Randy Petersen will act as purser and lead a group of moderators to serve fellow FlyerTalk members on-board a chartered Scandinavian Airlines Airbus A319 aircraft flying to various cities within Europe with stops along the way that will include interesting activities, including some potentially major surprises.
