I fly to Chicago later this afternoon to take part in StarMegaDO3!
Here’s how I described the event in an earlier post:
At StarMegaDO3 you can meet other like minded folks who obsess over miles and points and the top management of United Airlines and Hyatt Gold Passport.
You get to go on behind-the-scenes tours of Chicago O’Hare airport, fly on a charter plane to Montreal where you tour a Bombardier plane factory, fly on the same charter plane back to Denver where you could tour United’s training facilities or get to ride in an F16!
And that’s just a few of the many activities planned. What a terrific way to spend 4 days!
Besides meeting lots of other folks who are crazy about miles and points, I will also get Hyatt Diamond status by attending StarMegaDO3!
