Oneworld Megado: The Final Day with Qantas and Cathay Pacific

After four very busy days, several flights (and a few mechanical failures), 10,794 flight miles and touring American Airlines’ and Boeing’s facilities in Dallas and Seattle respectively, it was time to wrap up the first ever Oneworld Megado in Los Angeles.

Flight Path Museum

In the afternoon, we all met up at the little known Flight Path Museum near LAX to check out exhibits on aviation history at LAX including some wacky flight attendant uniforms and sip wine chosen by American Airlines’ wine consultant, Ken Chase.

At one point I looked out the window and saw two behemoth airplanes pulling up – a Qantas A380 and Cathay Pacific 777. As if the week wasn’t packed with enough aviation overload, I guess the event planners wanted to make the true plane nuts spontaneously combust.

They brought a Cathay Pacific 777 and a Qantas A380 over from the airport just for us.

We were pretty much given free rein to walk around the Cathay Pacific 777 including the business class I flew this summer, and the massive Qantas A380. Talk about kids in a candy shop.

Checking out Cathay first class - happy I redeemed for it before the Avios devaluation!

That’s All, Folks

And that was it! Oneworld Megado #1 came to an end in the late afternoon, everyone parted ways to either spend a Saturday night in LA, or, like Seatmate Contest winner Conor, to hop aboard another flight or one last mileage run to take advantage of American’s January Double EQM promotion.

Perhaps the coolest part of unlimited access to the planes: hanging in the crew rest bunks!

Cathay shell coach seating...not bad, but I couldn't imagine a middle seat for 16 hours!

Qantas economy seats.. Certain exit rows have miles of legroom

Qantas Premium Economy - exit row had tons of space and nice recline
