Star Megado Domestic Portion Tickets On Sale July 9

in Mega Do, star alliance

A Mega Do is an event set up by frequent flyers and the airlines, where we charter a jet and fly around to different cities and the airlines/hotels set up really interesting events that provide access to places few people ever get to see. On past Mega Dos I have gotten to use a United Airlines pilot training simulator, toured the Frankfurt LSG SkyChef facility and even gotten to participate in flight attendant training at the American Airlines flight attendant training facility.

The next Star Alliance Megado (#4) will be taking place this November, and per the official blog, ticket booking will begin Monday, July 9th at 10 am Eastern (9am Central, 8am Mountain, 7am Pacific) at megado.com. Tickets will go very quickly (likely in minutes), so decide now if you want to join in the festivities. I’ll be there as a sponsor of the event and will most likely run another seatmate giveaway, but those contests are fierce so if you want to go I’d recommend securing a ticket. Not only is it an amazing event with great access to airline and hotel executives (and favorite bloggers)- but it’s a good way to rack up elite miles, get lots of giveaways and party!

Here is a breakdown of the seat categories and pricing for the domestic portion from November 13-17: 

  • BusinessFirst — each $1,999 USD total.
  • Tommy Class — each $1,599 total (extra legroom and no one next to you).
  • Economy Plus — each $1,249 total.
  • Economy Class — each $999 total.

The flight distance (San Francisco – Houston – Chicago) totals 2,650 miles participants accrue more than that in a United MileagePlus account (note: United MileagePlus is the only program offering mileage credit for the charter).

Economy — 5,000 PQM/RDM
Tommy Class and Economy Plus — 7,500 PQM/RDM
Business First — 15,000 PQM/RDM

You can see the rest of the schedule of events here. More details to come.

    Years ago, I remember thinking that Flyertalkers were mostly single if they attended DOs. These days, I’m thinking many of them much be rich to attend a DO.

    I’ve never really understood the point of this. As far as I can tell you pay an obscene amount of money to fly around to nowhere in particular and talk to people that fly regularly. I’d hasten to even call it a circle jerk; it’s more like a circle sit and do not much.

    Unless visiting a kitchen and flight attendant school are high on your bucket list. Oh wait, last time you got to fly on a new plane! Exciting.

    I went on one world megaDO and it was a blast: you end up getting comped extra miles, swag and get to see things not available to the general public like inside a 737 assembly line / to end up breaking bread with others who share the same travel passions that you do is a bonus

    I’ve read a lot about the MegaDos so I sat down at my computer at 9:58 on Monday morning and went to the MegaDo site, hoping to purchase a seat. I kept pushing “refresh” and at 10:04 a “Register” button popped up. I hit it right away and only 22 Coach seats were available. By the time I was done registering, it was sold out. WOW. I was hoping for the Tommy Class, but am jazzed to be on the plane at all!

    Here’s to a sweet wife who’s supportive of this CRAZYness!
