MegaDo is a fun chance to meet loyalty program executives, tour airplanes, and look under the hood at many aspects of miles & points!

And similar to last year, folks have 3 ticket options:

  • Coach – $999
  • Business Class – $1,799 – Front of the plane, blocked middle seat, and upgraded service including champagne and premium drinks
  • Business Class Plus – $1,999 – Exit row seating (the most leg room on the plane), blocked middle seat, and upgraded service including champagne and premium drinks

All options include meals and open bar on flights and access and transportation to all scheduled events.

Just remember ticket prices do NOT include flights from the US to Europe or any hotels.  MegaDo has partnered with Austrian Airlines to give folks a discounted rate from the US, but the details haven’t been released yet.  And they’ve partnered with a few European hotels for a discount, too.

Bottom Line

The 8th Star MegaDo is just a few months away!  From September 19 to 22, 2017, folks can take the ultimate travel junkie field trip to Vienna, Brussels, and Mallorca to meet with folks from Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, and Hyatt.

Registration opens on May 11, 2017, at 9:00 am Pacific Time.  And if you’re interested, you’ll have to be quick, because tickets sell out almost immediately!
