AvGeek or not, this should definitely interest you. A MegaDo, as some of us airplane and travel nerds define it, is an opportunity to get behind the scenes with airlines and alliances and see how an airline works. I was on the oneworld MegaDo in January 2012, and I met people from all over who were excited about flying. Check out the full details of that experience here. Here are a few of the experiences we shared:
A simulated water evacuation
A trip to the Boeing 737 plant in Everett
Inside the charter flight…at 35K feet
BoardingArea is giving away a couple of seats on the StarMegaDo 4 charter this year. You get to hobnob with the United executives, fly with Randy Petersen, collect swag along the way and make new best friends who share your passion for flying. You can look up this thread on MilePoint for all the details on the MegaDo.
The Contest: Me and 28 other BoardingArea bloggers will be participating in a giveaway for 2 seats on the SMD4 charter. We will all pick one winning entry each, out of which two winners will be chosen by the BoardingArea team.
How to Enter? In the comments segment below, tell me which is your favourite Star Alliance airline and why? You can only participate once in this contest on this blog. Your entries should be coming in by 23:59 Mountain Time on October 7, 2012.
What do you win? A seat next to Randy Petersen on the upcoming StarMegaDo to be held between November 13, 2012 and November 16, 2012. Additionally, your tab for a night’s stay at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, Hyatt Regency Houston and Hyatt Regency Schaumberg and $250 for spending along the way are also yours.
