Tickets Going On Sale for Star MegaDo 5 – Toronto, Tucson and San Francisco With Air Canada

Tickets go on sale today for the Star MegaDo 5 starting at 12:00 PM central time. MegaDo’s are events 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 MegaDo’s I have gotten to use a United Airlines pilot training simulator, flown on one of United’s 787’s (pre-grounding!), had a Q&A with Jeff Smisek, visited the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington, and even gotten to participate in flight attendant training at the American Airlines flight attendant training facilities in Dallas.

All the past events have sold out within hours (if not minutes), so if you are interested in going this time around, I’d definitely recommend buying your tickets sooner than later. Unfortunately due to scheduling, I won’t be able to join this trip, but I’m sure it will be a great time.
